One very important element of being a young parent is the joy of watching your children learn to read, and of reading books with them. I began reading to my daughters when they were still newborn babies, because I believed that they understood the words on a very primitive level. My girls subsequently adore books, and always stop to read when they have the opportunity.
You can imagine my delight when I received a sparkly envelope in the post, and opened it to discover a stack of shiny new books for my children! The books were sent from Penguin Random House and Britmums, with an invitation to share them with friends. I loved the title of one immediately: The Dinosaur That Pooped Christmas. That one is going to my daughters’ best friends (who are also sisters) because I know they will giggle with delight when they open it on Christmas morning!
The second book I saw was The Little Elephant Who Wants to Fall Asleep. This one is specially designed to help your child fall into a natural state of quiet so that they can fall asleep more easily. I have a friend who recently gave birth under rather traumatic circumstances, and she has two older children, so this book will come in very handy indeed for them.
Finally, we have Max and Bird. This is the story of a cat who spies a tasty looking bird that he would like to eat, but during the story he discovers that they could actually become quite good friends. I knew who I could gift this book to, and our young friends will enjoy reading the story together and exploring their own ideas of friendship and how the animals interact. What books are you gifting to children this Christmas?
