World Book Day 2018
With hastily flung together costumes my children skipped into school this morning, favourite books tucked under their arms to share with their class and reading buddies. Whilst the costume side of things I could, quite honestly, take or leave, sharing stories is one of my all time favourite things to do with my boys. In fact, from the day they arrived home from hospital each of them has always had a bedtime story. The standard in our house is three picture books or around 20 minutes reading from a chapter book. As the older boys are both able to read they sometimes sneak in extra story time by reading alone too, but I do love the joy of sharing the tales together.
I have written on this subject before, so for World Book Day 2018 I thought I would narrow our selection down to the books that my boys are choosing to enjoy time and again at the moment before bed. For the purpose of this post, I have only included picture books although we are thoroughly enjoying a range of chapter books too, most notably David Walliams, The Midnight Gang. Anyway, current bedtime picture story favourites:
I Took the Moon for a Walk
Usborne night sounds
No Matter What
This gorgeous book is a firm favourite of ours and has been for a long time. Thinking of love, life and family, all rolled into one.
The Paper Dolls
Where The Wild Things Are
Those Magnificent Sheep In Their Flying Machine
Hector and Hummingbird
One Snowy Night
