We like to read


The Babar Collection by Jean De Brunhoff

Such a classic.

Did you read Babar as child? It's so nice to re-read them to Wilf. Actually this book has five stories and I don't think I had come across at least two of them. Tom got a little sad reading the first ever Barbar story (spoilers here in case you are not familiar).

Did you know Babar is celebrating his 80th anniversary?

What are you reading this week?

we were sent this edition of Babar's stories but all words and thoughts are my own

I've added a button to this series if you would like to link up just enter the following HTML underneath your post! 
all posts with buttons linked up with be shared on my FB, Twitter and Pinterest :)

Emmi said...

I loved Babar as a child, although instead of reading I watched it from the telly. You are right though, also in the series the first episode was quite tragic...a bit too much to handle for a sensitive 5-year-old me. :)
