The Cat in the Hat
Author: Dr. Seuss
The book is about two children who are bored and just can't  find anything to do. 
Sally and her brother are home alone, their mother is out.  The weather is awful. They hear a knock at the door... a cat.. wearing a hat he claims he can cure their boredom and starts to perform a number of peculiar tricks. 
He has two friends accompany him thing 1 and 2. 
The book has a rhyming theme throughout and is a little bit silly but produced lots of laughs from my daughter.

The Wolf is Not Invited
Author: Avril McDonald Illustrator: Tatiana Minina
We loved everything about this book from the colourful pictures and playful characters.  The rhyming Storyline was really fun too.  
We felt very sorry for poor wolf when he was singled out and left to play alone but we were soon cheering when the happy ending came. 

There was lots of What's, where's and whys whilst reading the story which meant she was interested and wanted to know more!

We all really enjoyed reading this book and I've a feeling we will be reading it again very very soon.

Guess How Much I Love You
Author: Sam McBratney Illustrator: Anita Jeram
This is one of the most beautiful books I've ever had the pleasure of reading to my children.  It's about two bunnies who are getting ready for bed when they start trying to out do each other with how much they love each other.  
Such a lovely story and I can bet it will become a favorite of yours too.

The Gruffalo Big Book
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
We are a family who love Julia Donaldson books. This one didn't let us down. We loved the rhyming flow throughout the book and the beautifully illustrated pictures.  
It has a brilliant story line that has you trapped right from the beginning and each time we read it, it's just as exciting as it was the first time we picked it up. The characters were all wonderful and the little mouse was so fierce and brave. 
The ending was very funny and we always havtoto read it 2-3 times in each sitting.
