Every time Bean and I go to Exclusive books, I look at the new books and Bean says, I’m just going to the children’s books mom, and off she tootles to look at books. I love that she has an interest in them. I love that she enjoys ‘reading’ and I love that she is turning into a little bookworm.
Luckily, they have chairs for the littles to sit on, and hundreds and hundreds of books to look at and enjoy. Inevitably she will want me to buy her something but alas, this can’t be done every time we go, but every now and then, I say Yes, we can buy that book. Or yes, choose a book and we will take it with us.
I think that she thinks that it is a bit like a library, we go regularly and she chooses her books so she wants to do the same in a bookshop! Luckily, it is her birthday soon and Exclusives have their sale on so guess what she will be getting from the birthday fairies, yip, some books!
I can’t wait until she can read herself!
There are no hard and fast favourites at the moment, but some of her most read books are:
Charlie and Lola
Guess how much I love you
And one which is called Too Purply about a little girl finding the perfect outfit. She loves it and reads it over and over!
I can’t wait until she can read all the books that were my favourite as a child. I have already started a collection which include:
Gobbilino the witches cat- Ursula Moray Williams
The Magic Faraway Tree- Enid Blyton
The Family from One End Street – Eve Garret My absolute all time favourite
Mr God this is Anna – Finn My absolute all time favourite(yes, I can have two all time faves!)
And then when she is older, some classics like Douglas Adams and Paul Gallico.
Oh, the joy that can be found in books is irreplaceable!
