I’m loving our 300 picture book challenge, as there’s just so many books to discover and enjoy. It’s also great to get one on one time with N to sit together rather than doing other things as he plays. I love that he’ll just wander off and go and root through some books to choose one…or 4.
N really seems to enjoy going to the library too. We get a commentary as we walk there, and what we need to do. The funniest is when he says ‘shh’ as we walk through the door. I don’t recall having told him to shh more than the first time, so that’s a pretty good memory.
This week, as well as the library, I’ve been trailing round a few charity shops for books. We have about 10 charity shops in our town, but not that many have picture books. Today though, I bought 8 picture books for 20p each from our Katharine House Hospice shop. Absolute bargain, and a good amount of children’s books to choose from.
Here’s this week’s books, and how we’re doing against the challenge.
- Books this week: 14
