Children’s book rotation including reference books

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. children's reference book shelf

Reference books on display;

  1. Children’s Discovery Atlas by Anita Ganeri
  2. DK/Unicef- Children Just Like Me (Love this book)
  3. Beginners Rubbish and Recycling by Stephanie Turnbull
  4. DK Nature Encyclopedia
  5. National Geographic My First book of Why
  6. DK Horse Encyclopedia

The above reference books are used mostly by my eldest. On our general reading/night time stories shelf we have;

  2. The Listening Walk by Paul Showers and illustrated by Aliki
  3. All by Myself- Aliki
  4. Three Hairy Maclary books and three Curious George books
  5. Tiddler and Squash and a Squeeze by Julia Donaldson
  6. The Laughing Tree by Australian writer and Artist Therese Eglington. Read more about this book on this link.
  7. Winnie the Pooh chapter book
Children's books at 4 years of age
All three of these books have been well loved by both of my children. At the moment, they are my four years old’s favourites.
Hairy Maclary children's book set
We were given a set of the Hairy Maclary books by Lynley Dodd and they are such fun books to read aloud. Wonderful rhyming books.
Curious George children's book set
The Curious George books are still popular in our house. We have had this set for around 4-5 years now.

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.
