Here's what happened...
So we thought we'd take them all to the library to
- choose their own books
- look at some books in the library setting
- see the amazing selection of books on offer
- and get inspired
We sat down at the picture book section and the children (aged 2-3) immediately started to pick books to look at. Interestingly they all picked books which were about things they love. T picked Dig Dig Digging in a board book, and he even noticed the difference between the board book and the picture book we read at home - in this board book version the page where all the vehicles are sleeping and it's night time is missed out.
M picked a book about Charlie and Lola who she loves, and little M picked a book about animals.
S was really interested in looking at all the identical sized books lined up on the shelves - maybe this fits in with his positioning and connecting schemas.
Here is what we took home in the end...
And we also picked a copy of Superworm by the brilliant Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. We read it together when we got home and it's great - all about a worm turned superhero with a baddie crow.
Why not take a trip to the library soon - how about to look for some Christmassy books - we had a great time and will definitely be taking all the children again soon.
