What we are reading this month: From a very young age I have been reading to Florence as part of her bedtime routine, I wanted to do this so that she had some quiet time before bed after all the excitement of her day.
'We're going on a bear hunt' - By Vivian French and Michael Rosen
A new study shows that reading the same books to children over and over again helps them to retain new words.
This can get a little boring but I have found that Florence gets so excited about predicting what's coming up on the next page. Michelle and I will be sharing our favourite books with you in monthly installments. This is Florence's current favourite (I read it very theatrically-she loves it)
Heres a little bit about it... Imagine the fun of going on a bear hunt-through tall, wavy grass (SWISHY SWISHY!); swampy mud (SQUELCH SQUELCH!); and a swirling whirling snowstorm (HOOOO WOOOO!) - only to find a "real" bear waiting at the end of the trail!
Most good book shops sell it or you can also buy it from Amazon
Happy reading - Daisy x
