Whatever Next! By Jill Murphy

Whatever Next!It’s early evening and Baby Bear asks his Mummy if he can go to the moon. The answer is a resounding NO as it’s bath time and, as she points out, he’d need a rocket anyway.

Not to be deterred, Baby Bear finds himself a box under the stairs which becomes a rocket, puts a colander on his head as a space helmet, packs his teddy and zooms off to space.

Who will he meet on his travels? And will he make it back in time for his bath?

This is a really cute little story that shows children there are no limits to their imagination.

The Something By Rebecca Cobb

The SomethingAnyone who has been following us for a while will know that Ivy and I are big fans of Rebecca Cobb and this beautiful book is no exception.

A little boy finds a hole underneath the cherry tree in his garden and begins to wonder what could be down there. He shows the hole to his parents, his sister, his friends and his grandparents and ask them what they think.

Could there be a family of frogs down there? Or bunnies? Or even a troll or a dragon? Only time will tell!

This is a delightful little book about the power of a child’s imagination and the illustrations are gorgeous. We particularly like the little blue troll.

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!
