READING WITH MY FOUR YEAR OLD | January


Half through last year I began a series here on Reading with Jade titled 'Reading with my Son', and it seems to have gone down quite well, which is great as I had every intention of continuing on with the series and documenting one of my favourite pastimes with my son. My plans for this series in 2018 are a little different however, as I'm going to be sharing a book haul each month showcasing the book(s) Alexander has picked out on our once a month bookshop trip. I may throw in a week of reading here & there, but consistently each month there should be one of these posts - they have been a bit haphazard in the past!

ALEXANDER'S JANUARY BOOK PICKS

We ventured to the bookshop early on in January, and so both of these titles have already been enjoyed... On more than one occasion! Prior to buying, Alexander was already familiar with both of these Julia Donaldson books as we had borrowed Zog and the Flying Doctors from the library before (he already owns the original Zog book) and Stick Man they have read at nursery. 

Our Julia Donaldson collection is ever growing...


(Side note to Christine, if she is reading this, I'm still on the lookout for The Giant Jumparee but have yet to see it in a shop or even at the library)

    1. Julia Donaldson is a children's bookshelf classic for sure, and I'm always happy to have children's books recommended!

  3. I love these kid posts. :) Stick Man looks cute, and I have been meaning to read it with W. for a while now. There is an Amazon movie version of it too. (Netflix? One of them.) Have a great week! :)

    1. I've seen the movie version about, but not watched ourselves yet.

      Thank you, and a wonderful week to you :-)

  5. I bet my niece would love Stick Man. She loves any book where an inanimate object has a fact and a personality!

  6. Those both look fun! And it's fun that Alexander can pick out his own books. My almost two-year-old isn't quite that discerning yet, but I'm looking forward to that day! :)
