I was going to talk about the best books we’ve read this year. Then I though, actually, we’ve had different kids this year to last year, and often the books are the same, shouldn’t it mean something if favourites stay?
So here are the books we have kept coming back to this year…
This featured on Children’s Hour back in 2012 (huh, I didn’t even realise Children’s Hour had been around that long!). The children still love being able to ‘read’ it themselves. They still love being able to join in, especially shouting “Oh no!” said Mr Bear “I can’t stand this”
A constant favourite with the kids, and we don’t even need to read it to them anymore- they pretty much all know it by heart! First featured in 2013
This is the only book which proves a certain toddler can have a quiet voice. And they still love the panic
I prefer this one to Brown Bear, and it’s a good substitute for the kids. I would even say it’s better as a group, just harder for the kids to remember
We don’t quite have a 3 Bears Picking Pears kid, but this still gets chosen a lot. The kids feel an achievement when they can count the number of animals correctly too.
