Our Week in Books #5

Later than I expected, but the ‘different picture books read’ has slowed down a lot this week. Fewer books read this week overall on account of us all feeling a bit grumpy and more likely to snuggle silently than to read together. The Worst Princess has been the hit of the week, read more times than I can remember; closely followed by Ruby, Blue and Blanket. Ant and Bee was only added to the shelves today but has already had five or six read throughs!

Picture Books read this week (some of them several times!):
Ant and Bee Ruby, Blue and Blanket The worst princess Dave. Sue Hendra Old Bear Little Bear's Trousers Magic Shoebox Farm The Baby Who Wouldn't Go to Bed One, Two, Flea! What-a-Mess In Summer If I Was Boss The Paper Bag Princess Don't Kick Up A Fuss, Gus! The Best Jumper The Lorax. by Dr. Seuss George's Dragon

Books added to shelves: 8 second-hand; 3 new; 3 review. Cumulative book spend: £87.18 + £12 loyalty card (89 books)

Books removed from shelves: 40 to charity shop; 6 to pre-school. Cumulative book removal: 81 books. (Plus about 30 to grandparents’ house so removed from our shelves, but still owned so not counting!)
