Today I thought I would share Alex’s 3 top favourite books so far.
This one isn’t much of a fav now – but it was huge when we first brought him home: Perfect Pets from the Bright Baby series. This is a touch and feel book that goes over various pets that one may have and has tactile sections for the child to tough – the goldfish scales are really cool! We have quite a few of the Bright Baby books and Alex really enjoys all of them.
Panda Bear, Panda Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle. This fun book goes over all different wild animals, seeing what they might see – in the end it is a dreaming child watching over them. I like to say it with a bouncy rhythm. I just love all Eric Carle books – I think it is the nostalgic feelings I get from remembering reading them as a child myself – especially The Very Hungry Caterpillar!
And last by not least – Bunny’s Noisy Book by Margaret Wise Brown. This has to be Alex’s all time favourite so far. He sits very still while you read it to him. He is also now doing some of the actions that I put into the book like stretching, scratching etc. It really is just a cute, well written story by an amazing author.
One that I’m newly fond of too is Sometimes I Like to Curl up in a Ball by Vicki Churchill and Charles Fuge. We have it out from the library right now – but I have to get our own copy – it is just adorable.
