Australian Kids are on Topp of Reading
What do flying prawns, an inflatable dolphin and a cheese volcano have in common?
Author Lisa Limbrick has published a book she hopes will help address poor literacy by encouraging the enjoyment of reading at a young age.
“I try to write books that capture the imagination of readers,” said Lisa. “Not every child automatically enjoys reading, but reading is an essential skill for life. Hopefully my book will encourage more children to read, and the book’s themes will also appeal to parents.”
Tom Topp and the Great Adventure Swap will take you on a hilarious adventure, especially when life doesn’t turn out as planned!
“The book is light-hearted and fun, but at the same time focuses on friendship, forgiveness and the fact that things don’t always turn out the way you’d like, and that’s okay!” said Lisa.
Lisa Limbrick began writing children's stories several years ago. She completed a PhD in education and has a passion for encouraging children not only to read well, but to love reading. Her children's books are full of bright, colourful imagery, designed to capture the imagination of the most reluctant reader.
Tom Topp and the Great Adventure Swap is available in all good bookstores or online at www.wombatbooks.com.au.
