Reading

Getting out the house to go anywhere can be quite an exercise in our house, especially if we have to be anywhere by a certain time, we are lucky that we rarely have a time constraint.

I Forgot to Say I Love You by Miriam Moss is about Billy and his Mum getting ready to go out for the day, Mum to work and Billy to nursery.  They are running late, Billy is more interested in his stuffed rabbit than in getting ready.  When Mum finally drops Billy off at nursery she dashes off forgetting to say something important to Billy.  This is not so much a story, rather a charming look at a situation that is part of so many children's lives.

We were delighted to find another Billy Bear book in the library recently.

Bedtime, Billy Bear! is a book about Billy and how he feels about being put to bed by a babysitter whilst his mother goes out for the evening.  He is unable to settle and keeps coming downstairs, once the babysitter works out what is bothering him, she reassures him and he goes off to sleep.



Both these books have beautiful illustrations by Anna Currey.  She has illustrated many children's books including One Ted Falls out of Bed by Julia Donaldson.
