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.
