Our kids love our collection of baby books. We’ve collected quite a lot throughout the years (and after 3 children!) but we have a few favourites that are dog-eared and falling apart. Emman and I have memorised each one by heart and have nailed all the requisite voices down.
A classic for a good reason and has lulled children (and parents alike!) to sleep for generations. We say goodnight to things in our room after reading this – a good way to teach young children names of objects at home.
Sandra Boynton writes funny and lighthearted books for children and this is one of our favourites about silly animals getting ready to sleep.
Another Sandra Boynton favourite. Our kids love the different animal sounds and chime in with their own versions of snorts, quacks, oinks and barks.
A simple and reassuring story of 3 baby owls who wake up to find their mum gone. They have to wait a while but their mum comes home in the end. We’ve changed the names of the owls to Cruz, Sinta and Pietro, of course.
Beautifully illustrated, this exciting book takes you on an adventure through a meadow, a river, mud, forest, a snowstorm and a cave.
