This months choice for the book corner is a very clever book I found in the school library. It is called The Story Machine and is written by Tom McLaughlin.
I love this book because it celebrates the pure joy of telling stories and for the purist in us it also champions the simple beauty and delight of using a typewriter.
The story centers on Elliot, a boy who loved to find things...
I find this book really inspiring as it gives children the message that they shouldn't give up and that everyone has a talent, you just have to find it! I think it would be brilliant for any children with dyslexia due to the letter jumbling references too.
It is a fun story with amazing illustrations. I remember making pictures like this on my mums old typewriter but nothing as elaborate as these.
There isn't a huge amount of text in this book but the pictures give you plenty to talk about, which makes it a perfect bedtime read.
Our rating: 7/10
