We were so busy in August that I didn’t get a chance to share our August Bedtime Story favourites, so I thought instead of rushing to put one together I’ll start fresh and share baby K’s September faves!
Zoom A Wheelie Good Book of Colours by Fhiona Galloway & Jonathan Litton
A cute book which brings together colours, animals and baby K’s favourite thing cars! A group of animals head out on a race in their various different coloured cars, using fun, bright illustrations and rhyming text there is plenty to look at and name on each page. The story is easy to read and holds baby K’s interest to the point in which he also repeats words he hears me say, the clever finger holes which your little one can use to turn the pages with.
Rabbit’s Nap by Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler
Rabbit is feeling sleepy and all she wants to do is have a nap but her friends are making too much noise. Help your toddler discover which one of rabbit’s friends are keeping her awake by lifting the flaps and following the fun text to see which noises are disturbing her, is it Fox’s chopping, Bear’s banging or Tortoises bell! Accompanied by beautifully detailed illustrations Rabbit’s Nap is another great book by Julia Donaldson.
A Patch of Black by Rachel Rooney & Deborah Allwright
This is a new addition to our bookshelf and a lovely one at that, especially if your child is afraid of the dark. A Patch of Black allows your child to imagine all the wondrous things they could do with a patch of black a silver star and moon, helping them to overcome their fear of the dark by taking a ride on a magic carpet, or using it as a sail for their magical ship. An easy read using rhyme and repetition alongside beautiful soft, dreamlike illustrations it’s easy to see why this book can become a favourite with children and parents alike.
Peace at Last by Jill Murphy
I love this book, it completely transports me back to being a kid, the good old days! Mr Bear just can’t sleep, Mrs Bear is snoring, Baby Bear is pretending to be an aeroplane, wherever he tries to settle in the house Mr Bear just can’t seem to get some peace and before he knows it it’s morning and time to wake back up for the new day, which I’m sure every parent can relate to!
