Billy’s Bucket by Kes Gray and Garry Parsons

Billy’s Bucket by Kes Gray and Garry ParsonsGreat book for sharing.

Much to his parent’s horror, Billy wants a bucket for his birthday. At first they try to persuade his to have something
else but, with the stubbornness that young children have, he sticks to his guns and finally they give in.

At the local D.I.Y. shop Billy tells the sales assistant exactly which bucket he wants. On his return he fills his bucket with ordinary tap water at the kitchen sink. With great excitement Billy looks into his birthday bucket and sees many different underwater environments and creatures. But, his parents just humour him when he tells them what he can see. In fact they think it’s funny. This view quickly changes when after disregarding Billy plea not to use his bucket, Billy’s fathers car is squashed by the whale that comes of the bucket when he uses it to wash his car.


About booksfrommybookshelf

I am a passionate reader of children's books (Primary aged) with a particular interest in picture books. I am always on the look out for children's books at are written by authors from other countries. I am also keen on technology and try to keep abreast of what is happening in a fast changing world. At present my day job is to support teachers and local authorities in the Yorkshire and Humber region (UK), which I really enjoy. Another aspect of my work is to present nationally developed work for the National Strategies. With economic cuts my job will terminate in Spring next year and I may be carrying out independent work based around high quality picture books. My other interest include my allotment, knitting and last but not least my family. My Twitter name is Orlama.
