Over at mumofone JB has done a fabby listography of her top 5 toys. I was going to follow suit but I couldn’t for the life of me decide on our top 5 mainly because our living room looks like this most of the time!!

us on a good day

 So moi, in my wisdom, has come up with an alternative, mainly because I’m hungry and I need to do anything to stop myself from eating chocolate. Where was I? OH yes, LPV loves books so I decided to share his top 5 book he loves.

In at #5 (cue old top of the pops chart music and red rimmed Mike Read glasses

As I was saying #5 Everywhere Babies by Susan Meyers 

It’s a lovely little rhyming book and LPV loves it


#4   Each Peach Pear Plum By Janet & Allan Ahlberg

definitely a bedtime favourite in our house (A lovely birthday pressie from Aunty Monkey)


#3 That’s not my plane By Fiona Watt

We have lots of these books I think they’re lovely


#2 I won’t bite By Rod Campbell

He’s a favourite author of ours, LPV loves this book especially the crocodile at the end


#1 Dear Zoo By Rod Campbell

I flippin love this book, so does LPV and so did my old class when I was a pre school teacher, such a lovely book

      peace at last by Jill Murphy I enjoy reading it just as much now to my class as I did to my little girl Lucy 29 years ago !!!!!!!!!!!!! I still read the original in good condition after her having 2 brothers who spent most of there toddler stage throwing books everywhere.

    love book reviews for toddlers.

    I have never seen any of them (which surprises me!)
    I’ll keep my eyes open for them!

    and our play room looks like that all the time too!
