Books I like to read to my two and half year old

"pudeymumum"
 
Slow Loris
Slow Loris
"A new favourite in our house.  Loris is really interesting as a character; the text and pictures are brilliantly meshed together - I particularly like the page 'FAST'"
The Complete Adventures of Curious George
The Complete Adventures of Curious George
"So nostalgic - I love reading these stories to our son.  They're so innocent and of another era, but not out of date, if that makes sense.  George is delightful - just like a cheeky little boy!"
That Pesky Rat
That Pesky Rat
"A favourite by Lauren Child - not quite as off the wall or post modern as others by her, a charming story of a rat prepared to prostitute himself as a cat to get a home!  Lovely."
Bringing Down the Moon
Bringing Down the Moon
"We quite often manage to get our little chap off to sleep after hearing this one.  It was one of the first books he could 'read' (ie. memorise) along to.  I think he likes the stars at the end too."
Usborne Book of First Experiences (Usborne First Experiences)
Usborne Book of First Experiences (Usborne First Experiences)
"A great little book for introducing toddlers and older wee ones to life changing or potentially difficult new experiences.  Recently gave this to a friend taking her kids abroad for three months."
The Kiss That Missed
The Kiss That Missed
"Utterly charming little tale that my son really enjoys reading along to.  Dragons, princes and goodnight stories all feature in a delightfully illustrated book."
The Gruffalo
The Gruffalo
"Where would we be without the Gruffalo?  In fact where would we be without Julia Donaldson.  Beautiful repetitive rhyme scheme and build up of tension allowing little ones to join in."
Room on the Broom
Room on the Broom
"Another fab Donaldson/Scheffler collaboration with wonderful illustrations accompanying great rhymes and choruses."
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book?
Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book?
"Our family loves Lauren Child.  This and the other 'Beware of the storybook wolves' are fantastically post modern - a treat to read to a toddler, although perhaps a bit too scary for some."
Beware of the Storybook Wolves
Beware of the Storybook Wolves
"The companion book to 'Big Bad book', a slightly surreal foray into the world of books destined to grab adults' as well as offsprings' attention."
