Meet Chris and Crat.
A boy and his cat.
Meet the Sprinkle Fairy. She has a word factory in Sicily (that’s where all the best words come from).
She employs the Sprinklers. These helpers warn us when a BIG word is about to show up in the story.
Together this team is out to make learning new words (BIG words) fun.
Who “purloined” Chris’s jelly donut?
Why did Crat become “discombobulated?”
Who “bamboozled” the boys?
Find out in “The Missing Donut” by Judith Henderson, where small stories will teach your children some BIG words!
Don’t upset the Sprinkle Fairy, or she could turn you into a hotdog – just ask Crat!
This book is delightfully engaging with each of the five short stories revealing a new BIG word for your kids to learn. At the end of the book, the Sprinkle Fairy puts on “A Small Play on Big Words” using all the new vocabulary.
The illustrations by T.L. McBeth are simple, yet expressive, making each story even more fun.
