We love books, and visit the library about once a month, taking a huge stock back with us, then usually end up taking them back overdue – oops!
H, aged 4, reads her stash every night we have them before bed. By the time they go back she knows at least one of her books by heart, and I inevitably end up buying a copy because its become part of the family! Last month’s was Tiddler by Julia Donaldson and Axel Schaeffler. Interestingly, not all of her stash become favourite’s, some are just always pushed to the bottom of the pile. What makes a good book?
H’s current haul consists:
- The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear – interestingly illustrated version with a new verse at the end
- I want my Mum by Tony Ross – a little princess book
- …I’m going to have to go and look at the rest of the pile to remember, so you can see which 2 have become favourites in the 3 weeks we’ve had them!
