My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes

It was Gaby's last story-time this week, and she read us this book, which daddy thought was really funny.
Everyone laughed and so did I.
Gaby is one of my best friends, and the Story-Time Gang visit me every week to read stories to me (well, the mummies read stories to the children, and we all have lots of fun)
The story gets more hard as it goes on - my Cat likes to hide in boxes, but there are cats that can't get through the door and cats that play the violin and all other sorts of things. The Gang did all the actions.
I'm going to miss Gaby, but I do still enjoy Story-Time with  the rest of the Gang.

Wibbly Pig Loves Presents

Mummy is going to do her Christmas window next week, so she thought I might like this one.
I read it all by myself with no help.
Wibbly Pig is given lots of presents and he showed me what they all are.
He got some books and a ball and lots of other things.
The pictures are funny - Wibbly Pig is little and cuddly.

Ladybird First Favourite Nursery Rhymes

This week Penguin merged with Random House.
I chose this lovely nursery rhyme book this week. It's got all my favourite nursery rhymes in it, (fifteen in total) and some make songs and some don't.
There are some very bright colour pictures, and the words are on the other side. IT's got big round tabs, and the pages are board, so they're really easy to turn by myself. It was Daddy'sd day off today, so he and Mummy both sang and read the nursery rhymes. I love Pat-a-cake and Twinkle Twinkle best.

Happy Christmas, Boris!

It's my Auntie Katherine's birthday on Sunday, so we've chosen this Christmas book to celebrate.
It's another Sam Lloyd.
Oh! How exciting this book is! Boris is a orange-haired furry monster, and Santa needs his help to deliver the Christmas presents. Boris is fluffy and strokey, and funny! And he gives me big kisses.

Hello Kitty Piano Book

I can already play the piano, of course. Daddy lets me play the one at church. So I was really excited when Mummy opened this one from the box! I played with it straight away!
It's not a story, but it's a book of musical notes, and you press the keyboard to make sounds. If you don't know how to make the notes, you press the pictures and it plays you a tune.

Daddy played the piano bit for me using the book.
It's colour-coded, so anyone can play it, all the way up to 6 or 7, I think.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Sound Book

 I know we all know the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. This one is different!
The story is the same, but it's told a bit more quickly, with not so many words. So it's better for me, because I don't like to sit still too long.
The best thing is it has a big yellow button on the front, and when i touch it, it goes "doo-do-deilde-dom-dum" (or something like that!) and it's the noise of the caterpillar walking along looking for food.
It still has the food counting that it has in the original.

Baby Play Day

I wasn't sure about Mummy choosing this one for me this week- I wanted Pirate Pete's Potty. She said I'm not learning how to use the potty.

So, we've read Baby Play Day. It's not a story, but a book of fun things.
There is a boy and girl who live in a house, and some letters (Mummy thought it was really clever that the apple turned into a ball and then a cat), and some numbers, and some touchy-feely pages at the back.

It's not got too much to look at, but it's just right to keep my attention for a little while. Mummy complained I couldn't keep still, so Daddy also took some pictures when he got in from work.

Buster's Farm

 Mummy read this one at story-time on Tuesday.
Everyone thought it was great.
Not only does the story tell you all about Buster looking after all the animals on the farm, but also, Mummy makes the animal noises, including the Duck, and you can feel all the animals furry!
A great book for someone as little as me, and as big as the other children.
We all loved it.
(PS, it is me in the picture - I'm wearing a caterpillar disguise that Aunty Rebekah gave me)

Animal Counting

This book is great! Mummy says "Six colourful Chameleons, SIX!"
and a number pops up from the page!
It counts you from 1 to 10, which is just unfathomable for me! Ten whole numbers! Wow! The animals are great fun, and there are as many animals as there are numbers - I know because Mummy counted them out to me.
It's by Petr Horcek, who is a famous Illustrator, and Tim, who visits me from Walker, thinks he's the bee's knees.

My Chunky Friend Daisy

We're both poorly this week. Mummy says I got the cold first and passed it onto her.
But because we're poorly, we feel lazy. So I chose this Daisy book, because Daisy is a car that likes to be lazy.
The story rhymes and makes it all jolly and at the end she's got flat tyres!
It's colourful and chunky, and Mummy made it go Clack! when she clicked the pages together.
