I thought I would carry on with my little posts on books we like to read.
I mentioned it before but we are in the extremely fortunate position of having over twenty years of beautiful children's books in our possession. I am the second eldest of a family of five children and as Wilf was the first grandchild we inherited a huge and carefully thought out collection. One of my favourite things about our living space is looking upon all these books, firstly as an illustrator myself, secondly as a mother and lastly as a nostalgic adult! Tom now does Wilf's bedtime and one of the night time routines is a book before bed, although a lot of these books (like Mog for example) are also childhood favourites for Tom I also love watching him read a book that is new to him but loved by me.
A firm favourite in our lives (and I would imagine many others) is Mog. Here are two of our favourite Mog books (we have sworn never to read 'Goodbye Mog' *sob* *sob*)
Mog's Amazing Birthday Caper - By Judith KerrThis is I think Tom's favourite Mog book. I love the illustrations of the 'mousedogbird', it's decidedly trippy that's for sure!
What is your favourite Mog book? Does Mog evoke the same nostalgia in you that it does me or are you new to Mog (and if you are you are in for such a treat!)
