Kitchen Disco
Author: Clare Foges Illustrator: Al Murphy
This is a great book with fab colourful illustrations and catchy rhymes. Even my 8 year old who often refuses to read picture books, enjoys reading this with his brother. Both my boys think the idea of fruit having a party whilst you're in bed is hilarious!

My Headteacher is a Vampire Rat
Author: Pamela Butchart Illustrator: Thomas Flintham
My 7 year old thought this book was really funny! The school setting is something he could really relate to as he spends a lot of time at school like all kids and it really seemed to capture his imagination as he thought about what it would be like if this was his school. It's a good length for him - not too long and over facing but not too short either. He's on the lookout for other Pamela Butchart books after reading this

Feelings: Inside my heart and in my head...
Author: Libby Walden Illustrator: Richard Jones
A beautifully illustrated book which does a great job of explaining feelings to children. My 3 year old didn't fully understand all of it but he understood enough to help talk about times when he might have felt certain ways. It was also good for helping put feelings into perspective for my 7 and 3 year old.

The Day The Crayons Came Home
Author: Drew Daywalt Illustrator: Oliver Jeffers
My 6 year old loves this book and finds it hilarious to read the different letters written from each crayon's perspective. The book is bright and engaging and captured my son's attention

Look Inside How Computers Work
Author: Alex Frith Illustrator: Colin King
We are big fans of the usborne see inside books and this one was no exception! An easy to read book with bright colourful illustrations and lots of interesting facts. A great introduction to concepts such as coding and good for helping children understand more about where computers started to be developed. I think I learnt a few things too! My 3 year old also enjoys looking at the pictures and lifting the flaps.
