#BookReview for The Littlest Yak by Lu Fraser @_lufraser #ChristmasRead #ChildrensBook @simonkids_UK #TheLittlestYak

Perfect for fans of Rachel Bright and Julia Donaldson, The Littlest Yak is a joyous, rhyming caper that teaches little ones to celebrate their own unique talents!

On the tip of the top of a mountain all snowy, where the ice-swirling, toe-curling blizzards were blowy, in a herd full of huddling yaks, big and small, lived Gertie . . . the littlest yak of them all.

Gertie is the littlest yak in her whole herd, and she’s feeling stuck in her smallness – she wants to grow UP and have bigness and tallness!

But when it turns out that there are some things that only Gertie can do, might she come to see that she’s perfect, just the way she is?

A rollicking, heartwarming and reassuring story from debut author, Lu Fraser and much-loved illustrator, Kate Hindley.


I thought that this book was great and lots of fun!

The book was well laid out, it was nice and had some lovely illustrations and it is a fab introduction to the wonderful Gertie – I read the book with my five-year-old daughter and she really loved it, she is quite a bit smaller than some of the other children in her year at school so the book was really positive for her and made her giggle and smile.

It was well written, the story was easy to follow and it had a great flow to the story

It is 5 stars from me for this one – very highly recommended!
