Kylie Dunstan, Nannie Loves, Penguin, 28 March 2016, 32pp., $24.99 (hbk), ISBN: 9781921504839
Kylie Dunstan’s quirky illustrations using collage, gouache and pencil, balance beautifully with this simple story about a family visiting Nana on her farm. A gentle rhythmic pace and engaging repetition lead the reader around the farm—shooing sheep, herding cows, feeding chooks, planting seeds and driving the tractor. Nannie loves everything on her farm, and most of all she loves her family coming to visit. Perfect for pre-school age and plenty of read-aloud enjoyment.
