This week we’ve had such glorious weather. We’ve been outside every day, so when bedtime has come around James has been really tired. Our bedtime stories have been short and sweet, therefore!
Due to the new and very real fear of insects James suddenly has, we’ve read Goodnight Little Monster a few times this week.
Hopefully we’ve solved the fear of bugs for a while, with the spray bottle idea I posted about on Friday.
We’ve also read this library book lots this week. Harris Finds His Feet, which is a gorgeously illustrated book by Catherine Rayner.
We loved Sylvia and Bird by the same author, and this one doesn’t disappoint. The pictures are beautiful, and it’s such a good read too. For a drowsy James the hare lolloping around is a nice image and somehow reminiscent of Gerald the Giraffe. I’m not sure why, but that’s what James tells me!
And for fun during the day time we have really enjoyed reading The Odd One Out – A Spotting Book, by Britta Teckentrup.
Here’s an example of what you have to do. You have a clue and then a picture to find the odd one out.
On this page the clue is:
A pod of seals bark,
calling out for their dinner.
Who gets the first fish?
Can you spot the winner?
“Me next! It is mine!”
each seal loudly cries,
but which one’s already
chewing its prize?
This book is lots of fun, and a nice inside activity after lunch when the sun is a bit hot! Sometimes the odd one is really hard to spot, and takes a while to find, but it’s a lovely book fun of great illustrations.
Did you spot the seal with the fish?
