Ready Steady Dig
Author: Smriti Prasadam-Halls Illustrator: Edward Eaves
My daughter loves spitting diggers when we’re out and about so I thought she’d like this book and she does. With bright colourful pictures she likes spotting the different machines and the story and rhyming are fun to read.

Anholt Family Favourites: We Love Bears
Author: Laurence Anholt Illustrator: Catherine Anholt
This should be a really nice book about two little boys adventure with their bear, but I find the rhyming a little too contrived somehow. The illustrations are nice though and are worth pausing over to see what you can spot together. Not my favourite book to read but my daughter likes it and requests it.

Peace at Last
Author: Jill Murphy
A story about Daddy Bear trying to get some sleep in all the wrong places, my daughter loves listening to all the noises Daddy Bear can’t put up with when he’s trying to sleep. The illustrations are simple and lovely and this has become a go-to book for bedtime recently.

The Hug
Author: Eoin McLaughlin Illustrator: Polly Dunbar
My daughter loves this book about a tortoise and a hedgehog both looking for a hug, we had to read it four times back to back when we first got it! It’s a clever book that meets in the middle with both animals getting the hug they need. The illustrations are uncluttered but full of character.

Is That an Elephant in My Fridge?
Author: Caroline Crowe Illustrator: Claudia Ranucci
This is a great book about a little boy counting elephants to get to sleep but the antics they get up to keep him awake instead. It’s a favourite in our house at the moment as my daughter loves the story and I like reading it too.
