My Top 5 Baby Books ..

Sebastian is nearly 15 months old now. He absolutely loves reading so we have an abundance of books all over the house – both in his room and in our living room. Here are our top 5 currently. 

1. Spot’s Story Collection 


These are a very good set of books and were given to him by a close friend. They are very independent reading friendly and Sebby loves to just sit and turn pages himself. It is good as there is continuity of characters in all and also very good topics that are relevant to his age range. 

2. The Very Lazy Ladybird 

Goodness me, this book has been his favourite since he was very very little. I don’t know if it is something to do with the colours/ pictures but he loves it. Had it at bednight time tonight – his choice! 


3. Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler


We actually have the full set of these books – but this one is by far his favourite. 

Sebby loves the flaps and, in fact, they will probably all need to get glued down again as they have been tugged at. 

Found a new one in the set from a garden centre last week – colours. Good to see the same use of the characters – this one, however, had no flaps.

4. Say goodnight to the sleepy animals 


This was given as a birthday present and is always on high demand for bedtime reading . Sebby loves the sounds and pointing at the animals. I feel it encourages the idea of sleeping and saying good night.😴

5. Hairy McLary from Donaldson’s Diary


Another favourite – particularly with cousins, nephews and nieces. This does come as a series of books and we have quite a few. Lots of individual characters in them. Lots of rhyming as well and you will find you remember the story line very easily. 

Happy reading 😀
