5 a Day Books

A few weeks ago I came across an inspiring blog by UK teacher Anna Ranson. The Imagination Tree is a fantastic resource that explores different ways to play and create with children, and it ticks all of my boxes for Nurture the Little People.

We love books and reading in our family, and so when I saw the 5 a Day Books linky, I just knew that I had to join in.

Our five a day favourites include classics like Each Peach Pear Plum, a Miffy Book about growing up and riding your bicycle, because we are all about riding our bike at the moment! We love Lucy Cousins and were so pleased to come across I'm the Best! Peter Rabbit is always a favourite at our house, so Count with Peter Rabbit gives us the perfect opportunity to learn our numbers, and finally, Oliver Jeffers, Lost and Found. I have fallen in love with his beautiful stories and amazing illustrations.

Oliver Jeffers delivers beautiful imagery
Counting to ten

Read a book or five and share the treasures you've been exploring in your family with The Imagination Trees' 5 a Day Books linky!

Be Happy

Fabulous idea and I love your list, Nic. Oliver Jeffers is an absolute favorite of mine. We also have Lost & Found and another of his How To Catch A Star. I love the dreamlike quality to his stories and illustrations. We are also into Julia Donaldson at the moment, Charlie Cook, The Gruffalo & Stick Man - we bought a new on on Saturday from Margaret River Book shop to celebrate National Bookshop Day!Check out Kids Book Review too - a great site for children's books
