LL loves toys but books have to be her favourite thing! We read every day, she sits on her own surrounded by books when I’m doing some housework and she’ll pick them up and flip over the pages. She stares at the pictures and points to them. She seems to have inherited my love of books! Here are some of her favourites…
It’s a Little Baby (Julia Donaldson) – This book features gorgeous illustrations, pull down flaps and a lovely little rhyme, teaching babies to wave, point, clap…and more!
Where’s Teddy? (Rod Campbell) – This search-and-find story has brought so much delight to our household. It’s the first book we got for LL and it’s her favourite. Follow Buster as he helps tidy the house, but keep a look out for Teddy, who is hiding amongst the mess! LL loves finding Teddy and points to him, she even says “Teddy” now, it’s so sweet!
Oh Dear! (Rod Campbell) – Another adventure with Buster and Teddy, this time in a lift the flap form. LL loves lift the flap books, (and so do I!) Buster is staying with Grandma on the farm. But where will he find the eggs for breakfast? Have fun hunting for them and discovering the hidden animals!
No Bed Without Ted (Nicola Smee) -Ok, so this is my favourite! When a little girl can’t find her teddy bear she refuses to go to bed. Another lift the flap book, with delightful pictures and a happy ending. It’s so charming and I love the cast of animal characters!
My First Gruffalo: Colours (Julia Donaldson) – This bold, chunky board book features bright illustrations and is easy to read. Simple and bold, it’s a great starting point when learning about different colours!
Sophie Pop Up Peekaboo! – As you can tell lift the flap books are popular in our house! This time Sophie la Girafe is hiding and she wants to play peek a boo! A lovely tactile book with exciting pop out surprises!
