We’re carrying on with our library books this week: we had a few repeat reads and some new ones as seen below.
Blown Away (Rob Biddulph)
I had a thing about penguins as a kid so I think I would have loved this book. It was a fun adventure story with beautiful pictures.
Grrrrr! (Rob Biddulph)
Another great story from the author of Blown Away. A fun rhyming tale about a bear who loses his Grrrrr – not just his voice but the actually grrrr that goes inside his speech bubble. Fun for adults as well as kids.
Lemur Dreamer (Courtney Dicmas)
My son smiled the whole way through this so there was something about it that he loved. I thought the story was okay, but a bit difficult to follow from the words alone sometimes: it really relied on the pictures accompanying it.
Two Little Bears (Hanna Muschg)
Repetition and rhyme make this a brilliant bedtime story, and the illustrations are gorgeous.
Dear Zoo (Rod Campbell)
Classic children’s book – I loved it when I was younger. This time round I probably enjoyed it more than the baby, but I’m sure he’ll love lifting the flaps when he’s older.
Baby’s Day (Little Tiger Press)
Free Book Start book. Nice and short rhyming book. Baby loves looking at the contrast colours and baby faces.
Elmer’s Friends (David McKee)
Free Book Start book. Really bright colours and a lovely message about diversity.
