It's time for another monthly kids book wrap up!
Keep reading for a short wrap up of the books I've been reading with my 6-year-old, Rosie.
I share a lot of our books on Instagram, so feel free to follow me over there for more regular kid's book updates.
As always, you can click on the title to visit Goodreads (if available):
Knights and Dragons Unite (Twinkl Book Club) - You can always trust Twinkl books to be inclusive and we love getting our monthly subscription. This months' book is all about the power of friendship and putting aside your differences. It was a really sweet, rhyming story much enjoyed by R.
Freddie and the Fairy by Julia Donaldson and Karen George - We love this book. Featuring a fairy with hearing difficulties and a little boy who doesn't quite understand, this book is a gem and perfect for teaching children how to speak clearly to help others understand them.
The Children of Willow Farm by Enid Blyton - We finally finished this month's chapter book. As much as R loved this one, for me it dragged a little, but I can't complain as R absolutely loves these books. She enjoyed learning about every aspect of farm life and is now adamant that we're going to go and live on a farm surrounded by hoards of animals. Now to win the lottery...
The First Hippo on the Moon by David Walliams - This book was awful. Even R found it childish. It was just fart jokes and poor humour and wasn't a winner for us.
Bear's Story by Clare Freedman and Alison Friend - This is one of R's favourite library books. I can't count how many times she's read it and asked me to read it to her. She loves Bear and his journey to create his own story. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is sweet and all about friends helping each other.
How the Library (Not the Prince) Saved Rapunzel by Wendy Meddour and Rebecca Ashdown - Another library favourite this month. R loved this feminist retelling of Rapunzel. It was filled with a diverse cast of characters and with a great message of helping each other and saving yourself.
I Love My Mummy (Igloo Books) - You're never too old for picture books. This sweet story is a bedtime favourite. Perfect for cuddles and settling down to sleep.
African Myths by Neil Morris - Another brilliant selection from our library book haul. This might be R's favourite library book this month. She's devoured these African myths, which has sparked a desire in her to learn more about the country and its culture.
Rosni and the Hundred Hungry Goats (Wonderbooks by Save the Children) - We're really starting to love this monthly subscription. The books feature stories from all over the world with important messages and discussions along the way. This month Rosie learned all about the children who rear goats to raise money for school. It prompted a lot of important questions and we're excited to use these books for R's Geography lessons next term.
And that's all for this month, we actually read a lot more than I thought we had.
For our main chapter book, we recently started, A Sprinkle of Sorcery by Michelle Harrison at around one chapter per night. We're not finished with it yet, so I'll post the review for that when we're done.
On top of the above, R has also been listening to quite a few audiobooks. She's been particularly obsessed with The Beatrix Potter Collection, read by Andrew Scott and Mary Poppins, read by Olivia Colman.
