I Want to Be in a Scary Story
Author: Sean Taylor Illustrator: Jean Jullien
We were excited that this arrived just in time for Halloween and read it as a bedtime story. The book reads as a dialogue between the narrator and little monster. The little monster wants to be in a scary story but then it finds things too scary. My 5 year old enjoyed this very much, he thought it funny however my 3 year old wasn’t very engaged in it, I think because although I tried to do two different voices, he found it hard to know which character was talking. The illustrations and lay out is good but I felt the pages weren’t good quality and hard to turn for small children.

Daddy Hairdo
Author: Francis Martin Illustrator: Claire Powell
This is such a fun, silly story. There are loads of great illustrations to go along with all the hair styles. My sons thought it was funny when Dad lost his hair. It’s a story about a little girl and her Dad however me and my boys found it enjoyable so I would recommend for boys and girls. It’s great for a bedtime read, we are reading it frequently at the moment.

The Jolly Christmas Postman
Authors: Allan Ahlberg , Janet Ahlberg
I loved this story myself as a child and now so do my sons. There are lots of familiar story book characters such as Little Red Riding Hood and The Big Bad Wolf. The story rhymes so it flows lovely and each page has an envelope with some post to read. It ends with a trip to see Santa. It’s a lovely story to read at Christmas time. A firm favourite.

Oxford Reading Tree Read With Biff, Chip, and Kipper: First Stories: Level 3: I Can Trick a Tiger
Authors: Roderick Hunt , Ms Cynthia Rider Illustrator: Mr. Alex Brychta
My son loves these stories. This one was another with a repeating pattern to the story which is great for my eldest learning to read and also great for my youngest who can anticipate what will happen next. The lay out is great for my son as it’s clear and simple and it has lovely pictures to help tell the story.

Spot's Opposites
Author: Eric Hill
A great, bright fun book teaching opposites with the familiar Spot character. It kept my son engaged and he has asked to read it again.
