Ben loves books, which we are very happy about as I have a huge collection from being a teacher and have a great love of children’s books. I thought it would be nice to record his favourites from month to month. He knows what he likes. He chooses books himself and will bring them to you to read but will also push a book away if he doesn’t like it. He has a book cupboard which he sits at daily and pulls out books and sits and reads them. We seem to accumulate a small pile of books to read at bedtime and If I try to skip some he digs to find them in the pile. Benjamin and Andrew also like to read the magazine – Australian Motorcycle News.
His favourites at the moment are: “Dig Dig Digging” by Margaret Mayo and Alex Ayliffe, “Mice Squeak-We Speak” by Tomie do Paola (A poem by Arnold L Shapiro) and “Where is the Green Sheep?” by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek. He also likes to read “Peek-a-Boo” by InnovativeKids. I have put photos of us in this book and he is beginning to tell me who it is. It is such a joy to read with him.
