Library Love is a new regular (ok, as regular as my posts ever are) post with short reviews of the picture books we choose from the library each week.
Our Twinkleboost story at the library this week was The Little Mermaid. Peapod was a big fan of the mermaid toy, dressing ups, bubbles and under sea ‘cave’ (parachute-y thing with dangly bits!)
Then we swapped our books (after he’d practiced his pulling himself up on the book boxes of course!)
What we took back
Some of these have already been reviewed in this week’s Peapod’s Picks, as they were some of our holiday reads. The other two were:
- Meltdown! by Jill Murphy
Sure to bring a smile, grimace, tear or all three to any parent of a young child – Jill Murphy gets it spot on again as we see little rabbit’s tantrum build and blow as mummy’s nerves fray amidst the stares of other shoppers.
- A Quiet Night In by Jill Murphy Double Jill Murphy this week! I couldn’t resist this – a Large family book I’d not read! I’ll definitely be adding it to our collection, it has all the things that make these books so special – that characteristic understanding of family dynamics, a highly observant humour and familiar everyday scenarios. I do so love the Large family!
What we took out
What do you think of our choices? Have you read any of them?
