Robots Reading Round Up #2
Welcome to the second edition of Robots Reading Round Up. This week we are going for a bit of a wild theme for The Wildlife Trusts #30DaysWild challenge. I called into the library to see what we could find, by the end of my search we had a pile of 10 wild themed books. I chose the following four.
I hadn’t realised that this book had a 2+ age limit on it when I bought it home. I just thought it was a wonderful and colourful book by Autumn Publishing. It is probably a little advanced for the Robot, he doesn’t know what all the animals are let alone trying to find them on a page. I however love it and enjoyed looking for the toucan on each page. Maybe this will be one to revisit when the Robot is older!
Each page of Wild Animal Friends by Templar Publishing has a wild animal on it. Each double page spread has a parrot flying through it too, and one page on each spread has a touchy feely element to it. Bright and colourful, out of the four books it’s the one that the Robot seems to pick out first. So I do believe it’s a thumbs up from the Robot!
I picked out Slow Snail because of the bug element, it’s published by Baby Walker. It’s a really simple book and each page allows you to say s.l.o.w.l.y in a really slow and silly voice that the Robot loves. I actually got him to sit still and we got to the end of the book without having him crawl off or chew the book. Result! The slug has a shiny silver trail throughout the book and I think it’s really tactile. A simple effective book, it’s a thumbs up all round!
Hello, Bugs! Another bug book, but this I choose for nostalgic reasons. Black and white images are great for newborns, and Dave raved about it when the Robot was so little and would follow the black and white books around. This one is published by Bloomsbury. Each page has a new bug on, it’s not just black and white, each bug has a shiny colouring. The bugs all say something, and I love how the ladybird says “scurry, scurry”. The spider also says “dingle, dangle” too, each page makes me smile. I’m giving this a thumbs up too!
Thanks for reading. Have you got any favourite books to read with your little ones? Do let me know so I can look out for them.
