I am a real bookworm and love reading, something I hope to pass down to my children, so it’s important to me to instill a love of reading early on. Ava has loads of book, more than any baby will ever need and yet I keep buying her more, ooops I can’t help myself, there’s just so many good ones. I thought I would compile a little list of our favourite ones for anyone wondering where to start.
That’s not my…..
These books are just amazing, especially for younger ones that are just discovering textures. There are so many to choose from and you can incorporate them into seasonal play too, for spring we have That’s not my duck,piglet,cow and lamb. They can be pricey but often, on Amazon or in Sainsbury’s they are half price.
There are a few in this range but this is our favourite, I like to read it to her before I put her down for a nap. She also loves lifting the flaps and will happily sit there ‘reading’ it herself.
Guess how much I love you
This is just a beautiful book, a true classic! It’s took me a long time to not cry at the ending and even now it’s still chokes me. I like to read this to her before bed, and I just know it will be a favourite for years to come.
We’re going on a bear hunt
This has been a firm favourite of mine ever since Jack was little and I used to read it to him. Ava loves to find the doggy on each page and always waves bye bye to the bear, sooo cute!
If Ava could talk she would tell you that by far, this is her favourtist book. The flaps are big enough for her to open herself so she loves discovering the animals, we have also taught her to shout roar when she opens to lion!
Ava has a little reading area set up in her room where she will sit just before bed to read some stories.
I buy the majority of her books from Sainsbury’s as they are always so cheap, don’t forget to check out your local library too.
Thanks for reading
Love Amy xx
