Millie’s Top 5: Books

Millie absolutely loves reading at the moment. There are some books she can quote and ‘read’ along with too so I thought it’d be nice to share her favourites with you all. They vary from picture books to storybooks and even the occasional ones from the Library that I have to re-check every month because she enjoys it that much (Richard Byrne - This Book ate my Dog is such a favourite we’ve added it to her Christmas list to buy her!) Don’t get me wrong, there are some books that we love more than her and she more than us, but there’s only so many times you can read Peppa Pig in a week... She loves interactive books, ones that you have to lift flaps, or count along with, all of the ‘That’s not my...’ books that we’ve got from the library she’s really enjoyed too!

A lot of the books she owns we have picked up whilst out and about, The Works has some amazing offers on childrens books, some starting from 79p! Other places like Sainsburys and WH Smith often have good deals on too and some of her ‘older’ books are from Sainsburys so I can’t wait to show her those when she’s getting a little tired of the younger, more interactive books!

















‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle

'We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury

'Hide and Seek Pig’ by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

‘Green Eggs and Ham’ Dr. Seuss

‘Count with Maisy, Cheap, Cheap, Cheap’ by Lucy Cousins

I find books so much easier to read if there are characters to alter my voice for or lots of noises that we can both make or else she gets really bored of listening to a one-tone-story for 10 minutes, as we all would!

What are your little one’s favourite books, maybe we can add more to our collection!
