I’ve posted before about how C loves books and has had them from before she was born. She has her own bookshelf in the living room, that is getting rather full, and most days she can be found sat next to it on the floor pulling books out and ‘reading’ them.
As it’s World Book Day, I thought I’d share with you what we’re enjoying reading at the moment.
C’s not really fussy about books just yet and will quite happily sit and let you read pretty much anything to her at the moment. She does, however, have a few books that she will go for first. These do change; her favourite from about 12-18 months was Dear Zoo, and at the moment her favourites are:
- The Gruffalo– This has been a favourite for a while now and she helps me read it as she knows a lot of the words. She plays games based around the Gruffalo too and tells M she’s going to eat Daddy ice cream.
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar – This was one of the books she had before she was born and is one we’ve been reading to her forever. I do think she’s growing out of this one a little as it’s chosen a lot less than it used to be.
- My Dad– We both love this book. It’s a really nice little story and another that C loves to join in with.
- Funnybones– I can remember reading this one when I was younger and it’s nice to see it still being about today. It’s fairly long as far as our books go but C happily sits and listens to it all.
I do wonder how long it will be before her tastes change again and what she’ll enjoy next. What are your children enjoying at the moment?
