Books in a Basket

In our house we have baskets of books.  We have lots of bookshelves too in the dining room and the playroom but also scattered around the house we have baskets of books.  The books in these baskets are rotated regularly with the books on the shelves to ensure that the babies get to hear lots of new stories and enjoy all the many books that we own.  This idea has come from my book corner and book baskets in my classroom and started with a Christmas basket that I put out every year, even before I had children to read them too!  More about the festive selection box later though …

In the lounge basket at the moment we have the following books:

Each Peach, Pear Plum

Katie and the Sunflowers

The Rainbow Fish

Jamil’s Clever Cat

The Little Red Hen

The Ugly Duckling

Chicken Licken

One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish

All the Hairy MacLary books!!!

Can You Smile

Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See (current favourite for E and W!)

We’re Going on A Bear Hunt

Baby Einstein Mirror Me

The Story Tree (I love Barefoot Books!)

Wriggle and Roar

Ants in Your Pants

The Mick Inkpen Collection

The Princess and The White Bear King


The Stinky Cheeseman and other Stupid Fairy Tales

The Incredible Book Eating Boy

Beware of the Storybook Wolves

Who’s Afrraid of the Big Bad Book?

Over the next few days/weeks I am going to review each of these books and talk about how I use them at home and at school.

I am also going to be reading Little House on the Prairie and Children on the Oregon Trail and will review these too.  I remember loving these books when I was at the end of primary school so am keen to see if they still do it for me now, I have an inking that they will!

I have not read any adult fiction for a long time and have a growing list of must read books so as soon as I find the time to make a start on my growing pile, I will share my thoughts on these for you too.  I hope that you will read my reviews and share your own thoughts and comments too.

Time to get reading!!
