Great Kids Books!

Ted is a little bookworm...

He loves his books so much that he studied his birthday cards with a look of intrigue on his face just in case they were books.

 I love watching his tiny hands turning the pages and his little fingers tracing the pictures as he squeaks away to himself 'reading' us his stories.

I wanted to share with you some of my favourite books we have read recently.

Little Robins Christmas by Jan Fearnley

Little Robin's Christmas

This is a wonderful story about a lovely little Robin who is given some warm snuggly vests. This kind little bird helps out his friends and soon all of his vests are gone! With Christmas approaching Little Robin is relying on someone else to help him keep warm. Who will help Little Robin?

An adorable tale of good deeds and caring for friends, this made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside and the illustrations are fantastic!

Next up is a very exciting one for me...

The Dinosaur That Pooped A Planet by Tom Fletcher and Dougie Poynter

I have always been a huge fan of the McFly boys with them by my side through my teens and beyond and when it was announced that two of them were writing children's books I couldn't wait to share this new adventure with my boy.

Ted received two copies of their first book The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas for his first Christmas and this year he received the latest in the dinosaur collection. 

In this story Danny and Dinosaur take a trip into space. Much to Danny's mothers disappointment they forget to take a packed lunch, Dino gets peckish and the results are catastrophic! 

This story left me giggling like a child and Ted loved the rhyming and pace of the story, not to mention the brightly coloured pictures! 

I can't wait to see what else the boys have in store for Danny and his pooping Dinosaur!

We wanted to share our love of books with Teds Uncle Freddy who is 4 so for Christmas we shared...

Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and  The Tale of The Wizards Whisper by Kristina Stephenson

This funny story full to the brim with childish humour sees Sir Charlie Stinky Socks embark on his biggest adventure yet. He must be brave and fearless if he is going to tackle the spooky wooky wood and battle ogres and scallywags but surely with his cat Envelope by his side he can complete his quest?!

This book is full of magic and mystery and every page is bursting with amazing illustrations so much so that is has 4 huge fold out pages! 

Freddy didn't quite grasp the adventure, as books were not as exciting as the toys he got from Santa but I am going to hold out hope that he may be a bookworm too in a couple of years!  

What are your favourite childrens books?
