Arty! The Greatest Artist In The World

My two boys loved hearing about how Arty became the greatest artist in the world. They really liked the bright illustrations of all the different challenges Arty had to face in his quest. A fun story.

Axel Scheffler Treasury of Rhyming Stories Book and CD
Author: Axel Scheffler Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
If you're expecting something to the level of the likes of the Gruffalo then you'll be disappointed, but for a very young child this is a good book. Our one year old enjoys turning the pages, which he can easily do with the handy tabs. Short stories means he doesn't get bored or wander off before it's finished. As always great illustrations. The CD is nice to listen to, no annoying voice reading the stories.

That's Not My Lion
Authors: Fiona Watt , Rachel Wells
This is a great series for the little ones - exposing them to different textures, and words to describe these. Good sturdy books suitable for taking a battering from babies and toddlers. A lovely story enjoyed by both my boys, who fight to touch the relevant part on each page.

The Smartest Giant in Town
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
Another great Julia Donaldson book. A lovely story about George the giant, and how helping others made him happy. My two year old loves listening to this.
