Hello Beany here! Mummy Beans tells me she’s been reading lots of books, well so have I and I wanted to stop by and tell you about my favourite three, so while mummy’s making dinner I snuck onto the computer.
Here they are:
Fox’s Socks by Julia Donaldson
Boy does this woman write a good book. It keeps you guessing right until the end. Is Fox ever going to find all of his socks? I’ve just got to find out. Each page I help Fox find a new piece of clothing that’s hidden in a box or a cupboard. He seems to be a very disorganised Fox. I always know where my socks are, in fact mummy insists that I put them all back in the draw once I’ve finished sorting them.
Conclusion: Compelling, action packed story about socks, what more could you want?
Oh The Places You’ll Go by Dr Seuss
I love the pictures in this book. There’s so much to look at. There’s a funny little thing that looks a bit like a cat and walks along finding different places. He even gets to ride in a hot air balloon. Mummy says it’s talking about the ups and downs in life and how we all have them. Don’t I know it! I said to her, you try eating ratatouille when what you really want is hotdogs. I’m not sure she understood.
Conclusion: Hard hitting reality but I love the pictures.
We’re Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury
This is a about a family of intrepid explorers who go looking for a bear. I’m not quite sure why because when they find the bear they all run away and the bear’s clearly only trying to make friends with them. The best bit is the actions mummy does for this especially when we get to the snow storm scene. I could read this one again and again.
Conclusion: Adventure story with a funny family who don’t understand a bear’s need for a hug.
What books are you reading at the moment? I’d love to know so don’t forget to let mummy know so she can add them to my library!
