Yes, I've been watching the Winter Olympics and knitting and not researching this week's theme. So it's time for some of our favourites:
BeBop Express by H L Panahi
This book is a pleasure to read, the illustrations are lively and when you've read it, you know much more about the American Jazz Symphony. I love this book.
Wibbly Pig's Silly Big Bear by Mick Inkwell
"Wibbly Pig has a bear so big he can hardly fit on the page..."so he doesn't, he steps off the page and into our imaginations and when he is gone, we are very sad too.
Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak
Another one I never tire of reading. I like to get the kids to roll their terrible eyes and show their terrible claws.
Dear Zoo by Rod Campbell
A classic lift the flap book about choosing the perfect pet.
Sadie the Airmail Pilot by Kelly Strom
Amazing illustrations and a great adventure story. As Sadie the cat pilot battles through a terrible storm and a frightening crash to get the airmail through.
We'll be singing Jenny Jenkins, I'm a Little Airplane and we'll take some requests.
