Book Club May 2016

View From A Daddy Book Club May 2016

This month’s recommended read is from the Julia Donaldson and Alex Scheffler range (creators of The Gruffalo): The Rabbit’s Nap – Tales from Acorn Wood.

Although it’s not lengthy in its tale, this lift flap book is great at engaging little readers who are learning the fun of rhyming sounds. As you follow the tale of a little rabbit who craves a nap, your tiny reader can lift the flap on each page to discover the images that match the rhyming patterns. This is brilliant for learning onomatopoeic sounds and the role of punctuation in creating emphasis. The fun images and quirky characters that we have learnt to expect from this writing/ drawing duo is a firm favourite from our mini library.

There are a range of these chunky books that little hands can handle independently, which include: Postman Bear, Hide and Seek Pig and Fox’s Socks. ISBN: 978-1-4472-7341-7

    We’ve got two of the books from this series and they’ve always been favourites with my bigger boy. Think I will get the others for my baby boy as he’s just started lifting flaps in books.

    We love the ‘Acorn Wood’ books. There are a few in the series. All hits in our house. Flaps are so good for engaging younger readers aren’t they?!
