In honour of T turning 1 last week this weeks books are lady bird themed or ladybugs if you are not UK based. I really hope you enjoy them as much as we are.
So first has to be one that I recently did an outdoor activity with – What the lady bird heard
J loved this because of the rhyming and the animal sounds in the book – we’ve read it so many times at bedtime that if we start the story then he will continue reading it to us. T loves looking at the pictures in the book which are beautifully illustrated.
Our second book is an Eric Carle classic The bad-tempered ladybird
. A lovely books which is beautifully illustrated by Eric Carle in his distinctive way.
The very lazy ladybird
is a lovely book about a ladybird that has never learnt to fly because all she does is sleep all day and all night (ohhh sometimes I wish I could do that), but she wants to go somewhere else so she tries various other animals to get there. J loves that Kangaroo and we’ve been bouncing around the room going “Boing boing boing like a Kangaroo”.
Our fourth book this week is 10 little ladybug
s. I love combing maths and literacy and any book that involves counting is great. 10 Little ladybugs counts backwards from 10 with touchy feely ladybirds with each page turn one ladybird has gone.
A touchy feely book for the babies is a new one out this year from Ladybird Books – This Little Ladybird,
T loves books that are interactive and the more different textures, colours and less words they have the better. This book is so bright and colourful she loves it.
