I'll Love You For Ever
Author: Owen Hart Illustrator: Sean Julian
Really beautiful story about a parent bear loving her child through all seasons. It has really detailed lovely images of each season and the weather it brings alongside a nice gentle rhyme with sweet lyrical lines about loving your little one. A nice story to read at bedtime as they end up under the stars and it has a calming rhythm to it.

Amazing Daddy
Author: Rachel Bright
Super adorable story about a little panda who loves their Daddy. Pretty much what it says on the tin, super cute illustrations and lovely words about what makes Daddy so great.

Fox's Socks
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
Cute little story from Julia Donaldson. We'd previously read Rabbit's Nap which my daughter loved so thought we'd give this one ago. It still is the same quality of writing you would expect from Julia Donaldson although I do find this series not as interesting as 'The Whale and the Snail' for example.

The story follows Fox slowly getting dressed as he looks for his socks around the house. My daughter followed the story well enough and liked lifting the flaps.

However the main reason I gave this 3 stars instead of 4 or 5, was that the socks were a bit too well hidden in the image, my daughter had to be told that the last sock was a sock and not a hat for a jack in the box and also found the flaps a bit stiff.

But otherwise a nice book that my 2-year old enjoys reading.

Mog the Forgetful Cat
Author: Judith Kerr
This has become a new favourite of my two-year olds. I love the story of Mog from an adult perspective as it reminds me of my own cats and Mog is a real cutie but I do sometimes find the storytelling a little bit long-winded. It must be getting through to my daughter though as she can tell me what happens on each page and even when we're not reading it she likes to tell people about Mog going through the cat flap and eating eggs. We often have tantrums when it's time to say goodnight to Mog so a must if you have a toddler who adores cats.
