Our focus book is Traction Man is Here by Mini Grey
In this playful quirky picturebook, guaranteed to excite young readers, we meet Traction Man; an action hero with a difference.
‘We have read it together a few times and it’s definitely a book that has captured the boys’ attention. The illustrations are wonderful and Traction Man’s adventures have sparked lots in their imagination; which has led to lots of imaginative play in the bath especially; using the water for the “baddies” to hide under and using their boats and dinosaurs to save the characters. The boys love to use sponges as props and the tap as a waterfall.’ (Sarah)
