Cave Baby
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Emily Gravett
The whole family adores this beautiful book. The illustrations are stunning and follow the story wonderfully. The story is is jolly,fun & exciting and follows Cave Baby on a wonderful adventure with a mammoth family. The story skips along happily in almost a verse kind of script. Cave Baby is feeling board as his parents are very busy and he paints all over the caves wall (I think that we have all been there heehee). That evening he finds it hard to sleep and a mammoth takes him from his crib and gets him to paint wonderful pictures on his family cave. He has wonderful fun with the Mammoth and his family before being returned safely home where he dreams about lots of different animals. A lovely story that the children will ant to read again and again.

Room on the Broom
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
This book is wonderful, beautifully illustrated with a fantastic story. You can't help but fall in love with each and every character in the book. The story flows with a wonderful bounce and such wonderful descriptions. This book will become a top favorite with both children and adults. I love reading this to the children and creating unique voices for each character that joins the others with the witch on the broom. This book is full of wonder and imagination and I know that you will learn the entire book off by heart just like me heehee. A wonderful adventure about finding lost things and meeting new friends along the way. A joy to read. Each character was enchanting and had their own super personality. A story of friendship, kindness and trust.

The whole family loves this books and Mummy (me) & Daddy love reading this as a bedtime story. The story is beautifully written with detailed coulourful illustrations on each page. We love that Super Worm is a hero helping his bug friends in all sorts of wacky ways. My children love the Super Worm chant ''Super Worm is super long. Super Worm is super long'' and is often sung when we are doing the weekly food shop heehee. The story is magical and made my two youngsters want to get outside to do some bug hunting. All of the characters in the book were brilliant and added to the story. My two children love this book so much that my little girl wants to be Super Worm for world book day and my little lad wants to be Wizard Lizard. This will be a book that I know that my children will want to read to their children one day.

Lift-The-Flap Very First Questions & Answers: What is Poo?
Author: Katie Daynes Illustrator: Marta Alvarez Miguens
     Both myself and two children who are 4 and 6 loved this book. Did you know that Blue whale poo is PINK!!!! Nor did I. This was a fantastic fact that both of my children couldn't wait to get to school to everyone. 
     This book was beautifully illustrated, colourful and full of details. We enjoyed looking and talking about the pictures just as much as reading the book.
     The lift flaps were nice and thick so less likely to be damaged from little fingers excited to find out what was underneath.
     Poo is always a fun subject to cover and this book made us laugh as well as educating about poo. It was fab that the children now know that everyone poo's from Princesses, insects and bats.
     The book was informative and followed through (please excuse the pun lol) the entire process, from eating to pooping and where it goes and what it can be used for.
      My 4 year old loved the different animals, and was excited to find out about different shapes, smells and colours of poo.
      All in all this book was fantastic informative and super fun. We felt as if it ended a little abruptly, but that may have been because we ha been enjoying the subject so much.
      This would be super to use along side potty training, and super fun for early learners in the first few years of school.
