what’s Mimi reading?

This section is woefully out of date and probably reflects my daughter as a three year old being read to rather than the almost seven year old very competent reader she is now. I’ll add it to the todo list…

Here were some of the books rocking our earlier world (and probably due to rock her little brother’s…)

They aren’t in order or preference, or even listed alphabetically… They are frankly in the order they were picked up off the floor when I created this page. bookandbed will update as we stumble upon more favourites. What are yours? Do tell. bookandbed doesn’t like secrets 🙂

Now that I no longer work a 12 hour day, it’s time for me to write some notes about each book and why we like them. But you could of course equally check out what other more sentient, organized people say about them on amazon. I’m linking each to amazon.co.uk* to make retail therapy as immediate an experience as possible, if that’s your bag, but of course other retailers are available.Support your local bookshops! As the God of books, Neil Gaiman writes “a town without a bookshop is not a town” or something like that…

  1. Hello,
    Thought I’d share my little bookworms favourites…Slinky Malinki by Lynley Dodd, All Afloat on Noahs Boat by Tony Mitton and Guy Parker-Rees, Elephant Joe is a Pirate by David Wojtowycz are all time favourites. He is also fond of all of JD and AS books, but particularly Squash and a Squeeze and Monkey Puzzle. Here Comes the Rain by Anna Claybourne and Debbie Tarbett is another long term fave, and the one that surprises me the most when he plucks it off the bookshelf is The Magic Porridge Pot, one of those Ladybird Classics. I can’t believe I almost forgot to add Rainbow Rob – I can’t remember who the author is but it is a fab tale of a penguin wondering what it would be like to be someone else….

    • How lovely!!! Thanks Lynne! There are some books she loves I’ve neglected to add on here but haven’t had much time. I will check these out when I’m back on UK turf!
      Have a fabulous day tomorrow! Two weeks to go for us!
