Hoppy Birthday, Jo-Jo! (Green Bananas)

by Georgie Birkett (Illustrator), Georgie Birkett (Illustrator), Pippa Goodhart (Author)


A delightful story about growing up and sharing from Pippa Goodhart for Egmont's green banana series. Jo-Jo is not a happy little kangaroo. Her mom's just come home with a new baby. Now she's going to have to share her room, and worst of all, her mom and dad! But then it's her birthday, and her special party is full of surprises. Soon, Jo-Jo realizes that it's fun to be an older sister! Green bananas are divided into short, simple stories to develop reading techniques over a number of sessions. They are suitable for NC Level 1 readers. Green Bananas are carefully designed with education in mind, supporting children's understanding of how to read longer books. Green bananas only use one clause in each sentence and rely on dialogue and speech bubbles to encourage reading aloud.
