I LOVE MY MUM

Written and illustrated by Anna Walker, I Love My Mum is another great picture book for Mother’s Day. It’s all about Ollie the Zebra’s loving relationship with his mum,

Ollie is an appealing and distinctive character; a lively zebra who loves to play with his mum and do all sorts of things that kids love doing like chasing butterflies and playing hide and seek.

I Love My Mum goes through Ollie and Mum’s regular activities and explores the fun of their relationship.

The Ollie books are Anna Walker’s first books as author-illustrator and in them she captures the bond between mother and child as they spend special time together doing everyday things.

The I Love Ollie books are a series of books for every occasion and include I Love to Dance, I Love to Sing, I Love Holidays, I Love Birthdays, I Love Christmas, I Love My Dad, I Love My Grandpa, I Love My Grandma, I Love Easter, I Love My Baby Brother and I Love My Baby Sister.

The rhyming text is simple and easy to read and will engage young children aged 2+. They’ll also enjoy the simple but expressive full colour pictures.

I Love My Mum is published by Scholastic Australia.
