It’s been an exciting week for us, as we passed the first big milestone of 100 books read as part of the 300 Picture Books Challenge. We’ve now got through 108 different books in total and 12 new titles in the last seven days, all borrowed from our wonderful local library.
There were two new Hairy Maclary books, although Little Miss easily still loves the original the most, and another fab Giles Andreae title, author of one of last week’s favourites, Giraffes Can’t Dance. This week’s book, Rumble in the Jungle, is another great rhyming animal tale with especially bright and beautiful illustrations.
Little Croc’s Purse had a great moral to it, with Little Croc reaping the rewards after being honest, and Matilda’s Cat went down well as Matilda is also the name of one of Little Miss’s cousins.
Our two favourites this week, though, have been What the Ladybird Heard by Julia Donaldson, who’s fast becoming one of my all-time favourite children’s writers, and Hide and Seek Penguins.
The former features fab rhyming text, lots of animal noises and a glittery ladybird to find on most pages. The latter has flaps to lift and touchy-feely bits and Little Miss especially loved looking at this one on her own as well as with me.
You can follow our daily reading progress on Pinterest and I’d love to hear what you’ve been reading this week.
