In need of a change, my children and I rotated their reference books and swapped over some of their reading books. There was no need to buy or borrow any new books at this point. Simply swapping some out, always seems to spark new interest.
Reference books on display;
- Children’s Discovery Atlas by Anita Ganeri
- DK/Unicef- Children Just Like Me (Love this book)
- Beginners Rubbish and Recycling by Stephanie Turnbull
- DK Nature Encyclopedia
- National Geographic My First book of Why
- DK Horse Encyclopedia
- 50 Nature Projects for Kids by Cecilia Fitzsimons
The above reference books are used mostly by my eldest. On our general reading/night time stories shelf we have;
- Shoes from Grandpa by Mem Fox
- The Listening Walk by Paul Showers and illustrated by Aliki
- All by Myself- Aliki
- Three Hairy Maclary books and three Curious George books
- Tiddler and Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson
- The Laughing Tree by Australian writer and Artist Therese Eglington. Read more about this book on this link.
- Winnie the Pooh chapter book
My daughter has a small basket of simple chapter books which she reads mostly on her own (but not always- sometimes I read them to her) . At night time both of my children prefer for me to read to them as they are pretty tired come bed time.
