Robin loves to read and if the book has flaps to lift up, even better!
Quite often when he first wakes up he points to his books to read one, and last thing at night it is the same. As you can imagine a lot of his books are centred around nature.
Last year I wrote a post about nature inspired books we liked to read together, this year is no different.
So here are 4 of the nature inspired books we are enjoying at the moment.
What’s Up? by Olivia Cosneau and Bernard Duisit
This is such a pretty book full of different birds so daddy and I instantly love it! It’s progression from the usual ‘lift the flap books’ Robin reads as this one you need to lift or pull different flaps to get the birds to move. Maybe not the most robust book for an enthusiastic toddler but it is beautifully illustrated and engineered.
Who’s Hiding on the Farm? by Katharine McEwen
A great flap book that is all about discovering who is hiding on the farm. We seem to have quite a few farm themed books. Infact ‘moo’ was one of his first words!
Baby Bear, Baby Bear, What Do You See? Bill Martin Jnr and Eric Carle
This book is from the same author of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It has the signature style which you instantly recognise. A nice picture book with bright colours and a variety of animals. A good size book for Robin to hold himself too.
In the Garden by Hannah and Holly
This is a touch and trace book so something different. Robin hasn’t got the hang of that yet but enjoys looking at all the creatures. The book is colourful and the illustrations are lovely. It features different habitats such as in the soil and by the pond and what you may find there.
What are your favourite nature books?
