Little Man picked the World History book and came over every time he finds something about someone being disembowelled (William Wallace) or hung, drawn and quartered (William Wallace again) or sacrificed (Mayans and Aztecs). I absolutely love this book, I think it deserves a review of its own.
Gorgeous picked Amazing Adventure Stories and has been reading to himself and giggling away ("Mum look, after the race they went to the cafe and had a sip of oil!")
Little Lady picked the drawing book and invited our 19-year old neighbour round to draw with her.
This was Darling's stash:
I love the classics like Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle Duck. The Where's Spot book is paper unlike the others which are cardboard, but she will love the surprises behind all the flaps, so we can use this one together. The Kitten book is same as one Little Lady had when she was little and loved, Darling likes stroking the cats fur inside the book too. The Lego book came with Duplo blocks to make the characters in the book, she is fascinated with how the blocks stick together.
The books averaged about £3-4 for the big ones and about £2 for the baby books, about a quarter of the RRP price, so I am quite pleased and if it gets the boys reading, I am going to be very pleased.
