Fun Reads

Here are some old and new favourites:

www.amazon.com/Pom-Pom-Tiddly-Pom-Pooh-Adorables-Disney/dp/073642282X: a fun, rhyming book which I love reading (actually I know it off by heart by now!).

I'll Show You, Blue Kangaroo! : Jamie fell in love with this book we borrowed from the library. I'm considering buying it to add to our collection. It also addresses being obedient and consequences of being disobedient.

So Say The Little Monkeys : a lovely, rhyming book we took out from the library.

The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids: my girls have been obsessed with wolves since they were about 16 months old- first Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs and a special wolf edition of National Geographic. This is their latest wolf 'fix'! The illustrations are really beautiful too.

Skip to My Lou: the classic book has been a firm favourite in our house- fun to read and listen too.

One Rainy Day: a really beautiful book, with an easy to read story.

Happy reading!


  1. Oh, I have to get that wolf book! My girls love the wolf from Three Little Pigs. Almost every day we play "big bad wolf" with me as the wolf chasing the little piggies. When I say "I'll huff and I'll puff...", Vera says, "chiny chin chin big bad wolf". So much fun. Thanks for this list. I've been trying to think of books for a gift to a birthday party this weekend.

  2. SO cute! Gemma + Jamie kept on telling me, 'there's a wolf in the cupboard'- I thought Gareth had taught them that but it turns out they had been telling him the same thing! I also highly recommend Not Last Night But The Night Before- I wrote about it before- I think most children/adults will like it + its about a birthday too!
