Little Miss celebrates her birthday next week so we’ve all enjoyed reading It’s My Birthday by Helen Oxenbury this week. A Chair for Baby Bear was also a good pick from the library… she absolutely adores Goldilocks and the Three Bears and this modern book picks up the classic story and sees Baby Bear shopping for the perfect chair to replace the one broken by naughty Goldilocks. A must-read for Three Bears fans! And it has lovely pictures too.
But probably the most requested book this week was Not Now Bernard by David McKee, also the creator of the Elmer the elephant series. It’s a story that’s almost as old as me and I vaguely remember reading it myself as a child but reading it now as a parent made me feel quite uncomfortable, the message being ignore your children at your peril!
So with six new books added to the list, our total number of different books read so far this year is now 141.
Unfortunately this week has also seen me tending to two damaged library books – whoops! But I think I did a pretty good patch up job so hopefully nobody will notice!
You can follow our daily reading progress on Pinterest and I’d love to hear any recommendations.
