This is my 'bath book'. There is nothing I love more in the world than getting into a deep, hot bath with a good book and lazing for an hour. It's an easy read and very enjoyable.
Liddelar' (do it with a sort of japanese accent and you'll be spot on how he says it) when he sees it and will happily read it over and over again. The fisherman in him coming out I suppose!
This is his other favourite (and mine). It was bought for Rebe by Bubs when she was little and she loved it too. If you've never read it I would recommend it. It's beautifully illustrated all the way through with incredible attention to detail. It's set in the UK during the blitz but is completely timeless and there is great rhythm and repetition throughout. All the ingredients for a great read. He takes this into bed every night and reads it to Lambie (more often than not upside down).
I don't know what to say about this... It's just too good for words. I have been waiting since getting pregnant with Rebe in 2004 for her to be old enough to read it to her... in fact I would say I've had children purely to read them this book. It was THE family book for me growing up and I think Rebe is already enjoying it just as much.
This was a present from a dear, dear friend for Benny about a year ago and Rebe came across it again a couple of days ago and we have re-read it again and again. The illustrations are so cute and the idea is really lovely. Basically it's about loving people 'no matter what', and unconditional love is certainly very important even if you are a bear, or a crocodile or a bug!
Of course there are loads more but these are the books of the moment...
