Now I know I often sound like gushy mum, going on about how wonderful my little girl is and all the wonderful things she’s achieved are, but well, that’s all I’ve got to go on. She constantly amazes me on a daily basis – she came home from nursery with a handwritten Easter card which is wonderful. She’s starting to work out words from letters and understand things – which is why I will likely be buying a copy of the first book, as for the first time in the library yesterday H read most of the book to ME!
Jez Alborough – Yes is the book, and it’s fun – like all of his books. We don’t actually own any of them (yet) but have bought ‘Hugless Douglas’ for a few people in the past. What I like the most about it is the simple language – the majority of the book is just the words ‘yes’ or ‘no’ – and for H to read them and recognise the different words is HUGE to me. While I can’t say she’s reading, she’s starting; so most of all, I highly recommend this book to any parent whose child can work out words and wants to have that feeling of achievement when you read the book together. I swear I nearly burst into tears of pride in the library when she read to me. Published by Walker Books.
Oliver Jeffers – The Incredible Book Eating Boy – aaahh we love Oliver Jeffers. Has he ever had a rubbish book published? I doubt it. We’re very excited there’s a new book in the Huey’s series coming soon too, so finding a new book is a great thing. Anyway, this one – there’s even a stage play. Henry loves eating books. He eats them all day – and the more he eats, the cleverer he gets – but it’s never going to last… published by HarperCollins Children’s Books
