The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler


The Book You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - Supermarket Gremlins by Adam and Charlotte Guillain, Egmont Publishing

Recently, Archie has taken a jump from loving his hardback baby books, to enjoying the stories for a slightly older age range, and we've discovered some absolute gems. There's a small collection of books at the moment that he absolutely adores but there's one that has risen high above the rest, one book that has taken over every book (so much so that instead of 3 different books, he's been reading this same one 3 times before bed), one book that Mr J and I seem to enjoy just as much as Archie..

Supermarket Gremlins

by Adam and Charlotte Guillain

Supermarket Gremlins is an awesome book; it's a great jump from baby to toddler as it still features fun pop-ups but also has a hilarious, rhyming storyline that little one's (and big one's) can giggle along to. There are so many cheeky gremlins hiding within the pages that even after reading it multiple times, Mr J and I still hadn't uncovered them all. The illustrations are gorgeous and vibrant and A laughs every time he points out a 'gremlin bum-bum'. We absolutely love this book and would highly recommend it to toddlers (and parents alike).

The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - What Will Danny Do Today? by Pippa Goodhart, Egmont Publishing The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - What Will Danny Do Today? by Pippa Goodhart, Egmont Publishing

What Will Danny Do Today?

by Pippa Goodhart

The great thing about What Will Danny Do Today? is that it starts letting your little one's guide the story themselves and teaches them that they can make their own choices. On each page, they're given a number of different options, such as what will Danny wear, or learn at school or do at play-time and A's starting to enjoy choosing his own way through each different scenario. It also has a slight Where's Wally? feel about it, as every page is full to the brim of different characters (keep a look out for Shakespeare and the aliens) and we're always finding things we'd missed before.

The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs by Ian Whybrow

Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs

by Ian Whybrow

Archie loves dinosaurs, and as much as I initially thought this book may be to old for him to understand, he loves it! A will sit and listen so sweetly when we tell him the story and often points out his favourite dinosaurs within the pages, it really calms him down before bed and he loves the fact that he has his own dinosaur to take to bed too. Note to parents: Be prepared to practice your pronunciation skills, there's alot of apatosauruses!


The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - Cockatoos by Quentin Blake

Cockatoos

by Quentin Blake

Cockatoos is great for Mr J and I as well as for little A because Quentin Blake is one of our favourites too, and this children's book doesn't disappoint. It's full of giggles, and sneaky cockatoo's and is loads of fun for us all to read together. A caught on quickly and now points out where all the cockatoo's are hiding from poor Professor Dupont (great name).


The Books You HAVE to Buy Your Toddler - Oliver Who Would Not Sleep by Mara Bergman

Oliver Who Would Not Sleep

by Mara Bergman

Ah, well this one we've found to be pretty fitting lately, and it's a great book to share with a toddler who really doesn't like going to sleep! We love reading it to A as I'm sure he relates with Oliver very well, and by the end of it Oliver's drifted off to sleep and Archie is usually calm enough to lie down in bed himself.
