I’ve just learnt that a television programme dedicated to children’s books may launch on C4 later this year. I’m always keen to encourage YogaBugs to read so I think a kid’s book club is a great way to develop a love of books and story-telling. Meanwhile I’ve been asking YogaBugs for your favourite children’s books and got a fantastic response! I hope this list will give you a few ideas for children’s summer reads too.
Natasha suggests the following pre-school children’s favourite books: The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, Owl Babies by Martin Waddell, Splat The Cat by Rob Scotton,Six Dinner Sid by Inga Moore and Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.
Ashley has lots of book suggestions including Zippity Zebra and the Windy Day by Claire Henley, The King of Tiny Things and The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis, Cinderella andRapunzel by Lynn Roberts, the Captain Flinn stories such as Captain Flinn and the Pirate Dinosaurs by Giles Andreae, Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Really Big Adventure by Kristina Stephenson and The Night Pirates Peter Harris.
Here at YogaBugs mission control, we particularly like The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson as well as Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae. Now you tell us more about your favourite stories!
