Over the last couple of months we've been doing the 5-a-day Book Challenge from The Imagination Tree. We love books in our house and love reading stories together and I love looking for stories to do activities around, so we started doing the 5-a-day most weeks. We don't always manage every day or every week, but it 's great to have it there when we do have time. If you haven't tried it before I would highly recommend it. It is such a simple idea but so fantastic, you basically read the same 5 books each day for 5 days. It's a great way to keep reading through lots of different books and building in reading and stories into every day. We usually go for a mix of my choice and Little chick's choice, some library books and some of our own and I like them to be linked around a theme (just personal preference).
I just love seeing Little Chick (nearly 3 and a half) 'reading' (from memory) books like Brown Bear, Brown Bear to Shoeshine (just turned one) - they look so cute together, Shoeshine is an avid listener and Little Chick is so proud of herself for 'reading' to her little sis!
So as it's Daddy's birthday this week the books we're reading are all about Daddy and Birthday's.
Simple text with lovely illustrations all about what you get up to with Daddy. Very popular with a little Daddy's girl!
We love Spot, both the girls love this one with it's lift the flap and it's all about making a cake for Daddy's birthday.
Alfie goes to his best friend Bernard's birthday party. It's such a fab story beautifully written with some very funny characters, we just love Bernard!
Simple and funny, another great book from Nick Sharratt.
This one is a book I had as a kid and Little Chick loves it. Primrose Yellow is invited to Royal Blue's Birthday Party and the story is all about what she get him for a present. I really like it because most of things she thinks about getting him are things she makes.
