I like fruit – What we’re reading

IMG_8223Last week I mentioned winning a Book buggy pack. Well this was one of the books in the pack and we love it. We didn’t have a colour primer or many touch and feel books in our collection, so I was thrilled to receive this book as it fits both categories well.

IMG_8225 It’s a very simple board book with bright, colourful illustrations of fruit and each page has a textural component for young readers to feel. Obviously at 9 months Poppet is still too young to fully appreciate this book but she is drawn to the bright images and I hope in future she will fully appreciate it as we learn about colours and fruits.IMG_8234I’m linking up again this week with Carie at Space for the butterflies. If you’ve been reading head over there and link up or look for more inspiration.

Space for the Butterflies: What We're Reading
300 picture book challenge
This week we have only read 5 new books, our lowest number of new books in a week yet. Poppet has learnt to crawl properly this week and to pull herself up to standing using the furniture. As such she really does not want to sit still, at all! I’ve managed to read with her briefly most days still, often just after a nap when she is happy to sit and cuddle for a short while.
These are the new books we have read this week. You can find the full list of what we have read so far (and a brief review of each) on my pinterest board.
Number of new books read this week – 5
Total number of books read so far this year – 78/300

    Oh what a lovely prize to win – it looks absolutely gorgeous – and I’m sure it’s going to be well loved as your little one grows older!

      The other two books are just as lovely so may well feature in later weeks.
