Does your child enjoy reading? I’m raising a little bookworm! I’ve been reading to Autumn since she was about 6 weeks old and she absolutely loves books. Whether she’s on holiday, the library or at the park as the sun begins to set, reading is one of her favourite things to do. We recently received some lovely baby books from Book People – and you can win a duplicate set in the giveaway further down this page!
We’ve chosen a lovely selection of books, which are both fun and educational. With a combined recommended retail price of over £80, one little girl or boy will be delighted with these! These would be great for toddlers or newborns just starting their reading journey.
They range from the classic book Rosie’s Walk, to books about shapes and numbers and aliens! Aliens in space is interactive as you can move things on each page. Meanwhile, My First Book of Things to Find At Home contains scenes of various rooms in the home. There are lots of things to spot and questions for children to answer. Autumn is a little too young to answer these currently, but she’ll grow into the book more over time.
The Elmer books in the top left corner are great as they help to teach babies and toddlers the concepts of actions, colours, shapes and numbers. Autumn actually surprised me by being able to point out quite a few of the shapes the third time we read it! It’s amazing how much children learn so quickly from reading.
The in and out books are great too, as they allow children to trace the shapes with their fingers, creating a more interactive experience. Plus, the illustrations are lovely too!
We chose the boy’s potty training book, as Autumn likes pirates and enjoys making pirate noises! As such, I thought she might relate more to Pirate Pete more than the princess in the book aimed at girls. Autumn knows when she’s doing a wee and holds her nappy, so I suspect we’re not far off potty training. Currently she gets upset at the sight of her potty and doesn’t want to sit on it, so hopefully this book will help us! It comes with a reward chart and stickers, too, for added incentive.
Autumn goes through phases with books. However, her current favourites are My First Fire Engine and My First Train by Marion Billet. She loves pushing them along on their wheels and saying “Choo choo!” and “Nee naw!”
Inside these books, there are scenes with plenty to look at. The train book shows a train journey, beginning at the station and you notice something new each time!
