We Like to read - ladybird books

Hey hey!

Sorry it's been a while. I'm thinking of moving these posts to Sundays from now on as I often hold giveaway's on Mondays and it was getting a little crowded! On that note I have such a amazing giveaway in store tomorrow so don't forget to come back and check it out!

Here's is what we have been reading this week!


We've recently started reading *Ladybird books with Wilf. I'm lucky enough to have inherited a good thirty or so from my own childhood (benefits of having the first grandchild!). We have lots of the fairy tales and nursery rhymes but we've largely been reading the 'lets talk about books'. These books are great for getting your child to participate in the activity rather than sitting listening I ask him questions on each page and he loves the routine of it.

Some of the items are pretty retro like the images of terry cloth nappies (although I know people still use these today I doubt many modern books would depict them). I adore the colours in the pages, those bright blues, yellows and reds make me feel really nostalgic for my own childhood!

What are you reading this week?

Those look amazing, totally take me back to my own childhood. Books that encourage participation are my favourite, it's always good to encourage them to talk about what they see!

Oh I LOVE these books...you are so lucky to have all of these, they remind me so strongly of my childhood too. Those illustrations are so brilliant and just unlike anything around today. In fact, I think I might have to go and buy some of them now!
