300 Picture Books #6


Click on the badge above for details of the 300 picture books challenge and how to join in.

Six weeks into the year already, how did that happen?! We seem to have been fairly consistent with the number of different books read each week so far. I feel like I’ve not been reading much at all, but we’re averaging about two books every day excluding repeats so that seems pretty good in retrospect.

We might reach 100 next week, but maybe it will be the week after. At week six last year, we were at 136 books, but DG was only at pre-school so we had more reading time together, and we would have read far more than 136 books as I could read one book five times in a row if she wanted it (and she did!)

Shout out to more people who have already got to 100 different books read: Books My Kids Read and Story Snug.

Well done all! If I’ve missed anyone, please let me know. If 100 seems really high and you’re on 30, this is still on track for 300 in the year. We all have different amounts of time and every book read is an achievement.

  1. I’m adding chocolate mousse and hippo has a hat to my list! Slightly odd question but can you recommend any books about Dads? I want to get some for fathers day but so far only have ‘I love my Dad’ which is ok? Or any books about children being looked after by their Dads?

    • Not at all odd! I love David Melling’s “Just Like My Dad” which is a humorous one with lion characters. “There, There” has bear characters and the dad taking care of his son when he gets hurt (then the son takes care of dad when he hurts himself). “My Daddy” by Curtis Jobling has three little girls talking about why their dad is the best (mine’s a lion tamer, mine’s an explorer etc) “Shopping with Dad” is a nice one with a dad taking his daughter shopping. I’ve not read it but often hear Anthony Browne’s “My Dad” recommended. Search ‘dad’ and ‘father’ on here for reviews. I really should tag things better!

  2. We read The Great Big Treasure Hunt the other week. N didn’t really get that involved. I’m not sure he likes hardbacks as much. Or maybe it was that he was meant to be counting along and looking for stuff! He’s lazy when we’re reading.
