We are a book loving family and have been reading to our boys pretty much since they were tiny.  Admittedly we were much better with Jack than we were with Harry but luckily Harry is just as interested!  I thought I would share some of our favourite books each week.  We do buy books but not on a regular basis as it just gets too expensive.  The second-hand market here is nothing like the UK (one of the things I miss terribly is ebay and second hand shops!!) I have signed up with the local library and go there most weeks.  Which is an outing with the boys so that's a win for me!


So this week we have:

Jack & the Flum Flum Tree - Julia Donaldson
We adore Julia Donaldson and this book is phenomenal, the drawings especially are exquisite, we love finding all the images within the first image on the opening and back pages.  Can you see the wooden spoons, skipping rope etc.?

Mad About Minibeasts - Giles Andreae
There is a series of books by this author and his fellow illustrator, we love the colours and rhymes.

Up & Down - Oliver Jeffers
This is the same author who wrote Lost and Found which is also a beautiful animated film,  It is simple and he always has a touching story line.

Mog & the Granny - Judith Kerr
We are HUGE fans of Judith Kerr and her Mog series, so anything Mog related is a hit with us.

The Tiger who came to tea - Judith Kerr
And this book is such a fab read, Jack adores it. We were gifted it by a dear friend, Flick.

Please do share any favourites that your kids love!  We enjoy reading new books, as it can get a teeny bit monotonous reading the same old thing week in and week out!
