Darcys Favourite Books At The Moment




Ever since Darcy was about six weeks old, I have read to her pretty much every night. I think it is a great way to get them in to a bedtime routine, relaxes them, educates them, and most importantly I feel it gives us bonding time.

Darcy certainly has her favourites and these usually include puppet books, characters that she recognises from television books or just books where mummy does funny voices. So, today I thought i'd tell you about some of Darcys favourite books.


Calm down Boris by Sam Lloyd


This is a puppet book and you can definitely expect giggles from this.. It's about a monster called Boris who is far too tickly and kissy. This is what makes it so great that it is a puppet book because it has appropriate moments to be able to go compeltely OTT and make Darcy laugh. Makes me have good fun too as I can use silly voices.

The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson

I'm sure anyone with kids recognises this book! We've only recently bought this after hearing good things about it and I must admit I personally love it. I love how it's a story that leads somewhere. Darcy loves this because of the big pictures and again the voices I use. It's a firm favourite here..

Peppa Pig: My Daddy

Darcy is absolutely obsessed with anything Peppa Pig at the moment so this is the one she always chooses.. although I'm going to have to get the Mummy pig one...Not sure how I feel about Daddy getting all the love.. hehe.

Peepo! by Janet & Allan Ahlberg

This is a story read and loved by me when I was a little girl.. so when I saw this the other day I had to get it and read it to Darcy. I love how it's a classic book and the illustrations are so beautiful. Darcy loves hide and seek and peekaboo games so this one was a winner.

What are your little peoples favourite books..I'd love to find more.
Thanks for reading
Amelia
