Tigerlilly Quinn: We Like To Read

We Like To Read


One of the most surreal books from my childhood, unsurprisingly these illustrations have really stuck with me. The illustrations by John Hurford are so fantastically..trippy (for use of a better word!) when google-ing him to write this post I also discovered he has another children's book A.B.C of Animals, although at £60 that is out of our price range, as wonderful as I'm sure it is.


Lovely bonkers book 

I spoke last time about opening this post up as a collaborative project so that we can all share the books we love and are reading to our kiddos. I few of you said quite rightly that it might be hard to not get repetitive (good point!) but perhaps you could post on the books you loved as a child? It doesn't have to be books you own yourself. 

I love the idea of us all sharing these books and the memories behind them or the memories being created with our kiddos!

I've also set up a Pinterest board with the same name so if you would like to we could all post to there as well. If that's your kind of thing then please leave your Pinterest name and I can invite you to the board!

In the meantime I have decided to publish these posts on the first and third Monday of the month so if you find yourself wishing to play along you can add your link at anytime during those two weeks.

Lovely idea, children's books are brilliant (although we had a bit of an incident with current fave The Tiger Who Came to Tea last night, it's now missing the last page...oh dear). I'm gill_crawshaw on Pinterest, following the board already xx.

My childhood favorite was Sarah's Unicorn by Bruce Coville. It's out of print but my best buddy bought me a used copy online after she heard me talking about it. It is now my daughter Sarah's favorite book (funny how I named her Sarah) ;) I want to get my hands on a copy of Fredgehog....
