Some more children's books....

The cycles we go through in what the children love to read is very interesting. They will often return to favourites and read them over and over and then forget about them for a while until they are " rediscovered". Green eggs and Ham and The cat in the hat by Dr Seuss are both firm favourites at the moment. The Peppa Pig books are also a good choice. The illustrations are bright and cheerful and the stories are simple and easy to follow.

The fish who could wish by John Bush and illustrations by Korky Paul is a great read. A fish who could wish for anything finally wishes for the silliest thing of all. The children really enjoy the story and I love the illustrations.

Another book getting a lot of lap time at the moment is It was you, Blue Kangaroo! by Emma Chichester Clark. Lilly has a blue kangaroo that is very naughty and gets up to all sorts of mischief until he gets banished to the top of the bookshelf. Lilly has to sleep without him and is very heart sore. For any of you with little one's, this is a very sweet story and my children enjoy it very much.

Happy reading!
