We love nothing more than a good story in our house. Bedtime isn’t bedtime without sharing a book together. Dave and I used to take it in turns to read at night though more often than not now he does the bedtime story. As Ben’s reading skills are developing he also enjoys reading to his sisters at bedtimes occasionally.
Regular reading and sharing of books in our home means that Ben and Chloe are both developing a real love of books. From traditional fairy tales to the more modern offerings of Oliver Jeffers they enjoy just about any story which is offered to them. This of course means our book shelves are absolutely heaving – not that I’m saying there isn’t room for more! (I think variety is just as important for the parents reading the books as it is for the children hearing the story . . . you’ve been that parent reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar 13 nights in a row haven’t you?)
National Share A Story Month took place in May and The Works have been creating illustrations for modern day versions of traditional fairy tales. I love this version of the Three Little Pigs – with three children ourselves and a recent extension project under our belts it’s perfectly suited to my blog!
To encourage you to share more stories with your little ones, The Works are offering you the chance to win £20 to spend with them. As ever please complete as many of the Rafflecopter options as you would like – ensuring that they are completed accurately to avoid disqualification.
