We’ve finally done it! After a few weeks of hovering tantalisingly close – and my tease of a toddler seemingly deliberately keeping it at arm’s length by rejecting anything new – we have at last passed the 200 books read landmark! Our total for the year now stands at 201 to be precise!
OK, so I’m a little late with
this last week’s post but I didn’t want to let this one pass without a little bit of personal celebration and a slightly fancier than usual picture!
By far the favourite book from the latest crop is Two Little Aliens by Sam Lloyd, which I’ve read on average three times a day since we acquired it from the library last Friday! Thankfully it’s a quick, entertaining little read with simple but bright and quirky pictures. The story sees two extra terrestrial friends land their rocket in a playground and get upset when they get everything wrong. Luckily they make friends with two helpful children who show them how to enjoy the sandpit, ice creams and see-saw. Little Miss loves it and knows most of it by heart now!
