GRAND­MOTHER of four Kate Roesler has clocked up plenty of hours read­ing to kids.

She said she oc­ca­sion­ally reads to nine-year-old grand­son Manny Roesler-Ho­haia.

“There are no favourites at the mo­ment, it’s just what they bring home from the school li­brary,” she said.

“I know with my kids they used to love the Doc­tor Seuss books and I know the grand­chil­dren do as well.”

Chil­dren will love There Was an Old Lady Who Swal­lowed a Mozzie by P Crum­ble and Louis Shea, the lat­est book of­fered through the Great Aus­tralian Story Book Col­lec­tion.

In it, Aussie an­i­mals have been warned to be­ware be­cause there is an old lady in the bush with ap­petite.

Echid­nas, din­goes and snakes all look tasty to the very hun­gry lady and there is no an­i­mal which does not ap­pear tasty to her. an un­stop­pable There Was an Old Lady Who Swal­lowed a Mozzie, Cairns Post
