We are off on holiday and are taking some favourite books to accompany our travels and to read in all our leisurely spare time. I’m looking forward to Daddy reading the 5 a day books for a nice change!
So these are some of our absolute favourites at the moment. There will be more next week too!
You know how much I adore this duo! This is funny, silly, rhyming and teaches the alphabet. Perfect!
An absolute classic and one that we can tell by heart. Even Pop joins in with the “uh oh” on each page. If you don’t own this in your personal library, you need to!
A favourite of mine from my teaching days. I used to get the children to jump up and join in with the repeated refrain “Up jumps Chimp, up jumps Zee, ha ha ha, he he he!” Fantastically rhythmic and fun!
Cakie’s favourite book that she takes to bed more than any other at the moment. It has such a beautifully visual concept running through it, with a Mum who is obsessed by spots and a Dad with stripes. With a twist at the end that seems to delight her each and every time!
This sits in our kitchen table book basket and is requested very often at meal times. Silly, funny and really original, I think it would be a great starting point for lots of science, DT and art projects!
