The Girl with the Flaming Red Hair
by Joyce Murphy
About the Book
When I catch her
I throw her up into the air so high
That her hair flap, flap, flaps
Like a bird in the sky.
Meet Rosie Red, the girl with the Flaming Red Hair as she skip, hopidy, hops through her fun-filled life. Every day is just one big adventure after another!
The Girl with the Flaming Red Hair unfolds around playful Grandma, Rosie’s patient older sister, her trickster little brother, fun parents, her exasperated teacher and friends who first stare at her and are then won over by her fun, charm and zest for life. The story follows Rosie’s life experiences and day to day activities as she discovers herself and her relationships with those around her. Included is a fun facts section about red hair.
The Girl with the Flaming Red Hair is a fun picture book told in verse – a book that would make an excellent starter book for early readers. At the same time, kindergarten and preschool children can use this book for early learning as the verses provide a repeating word pattern which helps children, who are only just beginning to learn to read. Toddlers and younger children have been attracted to the bright and colourful illustrations and enjoy the rhyming sequences.
This delightful picture book will also appeal to children who enjoy rhyme books by Julia Donaldson and Rachel Bright and the occasional nursery rhyme.
Personalised signed copies of the Girl with the Flaming Red Hair are available from this website.
