Current favourites//Children's Books

Since A was born we've had a few books here and there, but only brought & received books when A turned 1.

Now at nearly 3 years old A has quite the collection of books, we mostly read at bedtime, where we can snuggle up and read x2 books each night.

Below are a small gathering of our favourites, I hope they inspire you to check them out for yourselves!.

First is the lovely story "The Tiger who came to tea" by Judith Kerr, a classic book, which I recall being read this myself.

the storyline isn't as long as it seems, & A sits and listens well to it.

Next is "Dear Zoo" by Rod Campbell.

A lift the flap book, which are always enjoyed by children, another classic story which is a must have for an child's book collection..

This is a book called "Our Planet" by Jimi Lee..

A book containing no words.. just gorgeously illustrated and striking too.
The story shows you trees being cut down, relentless pollution, and the chance for animals to start again..but I wont spoil the story, you'll just have to find out for yourselves.

"Now I am Big!" by Stephen Krensky & Illustrated by Sara Gillingham.

Visually striking and a wonderful little storyline to boot, it focusses on what a toddler can do now he/she is no longer a baby.
A adores this book & can tell us the end of each sentence by heart.

"I know A Lot!" by Stephen Krensky & Illustrated by Sara Gillingham.

A second book in the Krensky stories, again with just as much bold colours & shapes as the last & the story of a little girl (or could be boy!) who now knows more about her surroundings eg: rocks are heavy.. 
A also knows by heart the endings to each sentence and again one of our firm favourites!.

"I can do it myself!" by Stephen Krensky & Illustrated by Sara Gillingham.

the third book to the Krensky books, this time it's all about a child who is a little more independent, eg: I blow my own nose!.
And yes again A knows the endings to the sentences.
A loves these trio of books because he can relate to each child, often telling us "he's not a baby he's A!".

"Where Bear?" by Sophy Henn 

A gorgeously Illustrated and storyline all about a boy and a bear, who's grown perhaps a little big for the boy's house.
This book is lovely but a little long for A at the moment, we mostly currently skip parts of the story and just talk about the pictures for now, asking about emotions etc..
