It’s been a little while since we’ve had a bedtime read post – I told you they might be sporadic! But here is what we’ve been reading lately.
The Gruffalo (Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler)
This was in our #parcelsofjoy from the lovely Bex at The Ninja Book Swap. I read this to my sisters when they were younger and it’s great to read again to my son. The rhyming and story are just perfect and it’s definitely a favourite of mine.
Fetch (Jane Cabrera)
This was a fun read about a cute little dog and has some good counting lines as Fetch helps a different person on each day of the week.
The Great Balloon Hullaballoo (Peter Bentley & Met Matsouka)
This was a real wacky read as a squirrel and his friends travel to different planets to get shopping for his mum (including cheese from the moon, of course). The illustrations are gorgeous too.
The Pigeon Needs a Bath (Mo Wilems)
This was easily my favourite of our recent library books. It’s conversational and easy to read, and the pigeon is very funny. We’re trying to get Little Moore to enjoy bathtime more so I read this one a lot! I’d like to check out the other Pigeon books too after reading this one.
Underpants for Ants (Russell Punter)
This was another favourite. It’s a great phonic book and really fun for me to read, as well as to listen to. There’s great rhyming and lots of words with similar sounds and the story has good humour too.
