Library books review 📚
Haven't done one of these in a while because everyone was ill, and, to be honest, I don't think we have any amazing books worth shouting about. This week I have something special I wanted to share.
This week we had:
'Sarah and Duck and the Christmas Lights' by Sarah Gomes Harris
'Scarecrow's Secret' illustrated by Stephen Cartwright
'What's Inside: Submarines' by David West
It's hard not to love the animation of Sarah & Duck on Cbeebies. It's such a lovely, warm and funny programme. The book we picked up was very much in the same surreal thread as the TV programme, but I have to admit it was quite odd being the narrator, who also spoke to and got responses from characters in the book. Works on telly, but not sure I pulled it off. Also made me wish Christmas lights really did grow organically, so you could pick them from a Christmas garden. 'Scarecrow's Secret' was a pretty standard learning to read book. My toddler is nowhere near that stage but he enjoyed the story of the farm and discovering a cat in the scarecrow.
The final book isn't really a story book, but it has to be our favourite of the week. It's a book about submarines giving a very brief history with lovely large pictures of various types of submarines. Why did we have this book? Well, the toddler told the librarian about his love for the 'Yellow Submarine' song and the librarian ordered the book especially for him. The toddler doesn't really care about what all the parts in the submarine are called (though he will get me to read them all out🙄), but he will remember that the people in the library took a real interest in what interested him. Bloody love libraries!❤️❤️📚📚❤️❤️
