30 Day Book Challenge Day 7: Book that you can quote/recite

Day 7: Book that you can quote/recite

"Silly old fox, doesn't he know? There's no such thing as a gruffalo."

"The magic hat, the magic hat, it goes like this, it goes like that..."

As the owner of a soon to be 4 year old (on Saturday, how did that happen?) I read a lot of picture books.

The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffer is one I can recite. We have a lot of Julia Donaldson books and the simple rhymes make them easy to remember.

We also have a lot of Mem Fox books which also have lovely, catchy rhymes. We like The Magic Hat, Shoes from Grandpa ans Where is the Green sheep. I can't read Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge often because it makes me cry.

  1. Oh yes, I can recite an awful lot of Gruaffalo. And Tiddler was a fish with a big imagination....

  2. We've only just got Tiddler so I don't know that one as well yet. I'm pretty good with The Princess and the Wizard though.


Have you read this book or any other good books lately? If so let me know what you think...
