There’s A Monster In Your Book By Tom Fletcher & Greg Abbott

There's A Monster In Your BookThis gorgeous book only arrived this morning but by mid afternoon it had already been read 6 times and caused a major giggling episode.

Written by the lovely Tom Fletcher and illustrated by Greg Abbott, this riotous read guarantees amusement from the very first page.

There is a monster in your book and you need to get him out! Follow the instructions to try and shake, tickle and spin the cute little creature out of the book. But what happens when he actually escapes?

This one is highly recommended by both Ivy and myself!

Superworm By Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler

SuperwormSuperworm is everyone’s favourite worm.

Super long and super strong he saves lives and entertains his friends every day until evil Wizard Lizard kidnaps him and sets him to work tunnelling for treasure. When his friends find out what has happened they hatch a cunning plan to save the day.

I have to admit this book is a tiny bit annoying but Ivy loves the illustrations and always cheers at the end!

All Of Baby Nose To Toes By Victoria Adler & Hiroe Nakata

All Of Baby Nose To ToesI bought this book when Ivy was just a few months old on the recommendation of one of the mum’s in my NCT group and it’s been read hundreds of times.

The very sweet rhyme goes through all the cute details of a baby’s eyes, ears, nose, tummy and toes and each section ends with an opportunity to give your little one a squeeze and tell them how much you love them.

When Ivy was tiny she was fascinated by the lovely baby illustrations and now she sits in giggly anticipation of getting tickled and squished!

Lulu Loves Stories By Anna McQuinn & Rosalind Beardshaw

Lulu Loves StoriesThe little girl in this story – Lulu – shares Ivy’s love of books and the library so I love this one.

Every Saturday Lulu’s daddy takes her to the library so she can pick a selection of books for the week ahead.

Every evening her mummy or daddy reads her a story and the next day we see how the story influences the games she plays on her own or with her friends.

The books inspire her to become a princess, a pilot, a tiger, a farmer and a host of other things!

It’s a great story which shows the power of the imagination and how important it is for kids to develop an interest in books.

This book is beautifully illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw and our copy came with a CD of the story bring read in 19 different languages including Welsh, French, Arabic, Swahili, Tamil, Urdu, Mandarin and Japanese!
