So we've had loads of books come and go through this house: some rubbish, some fairly forgettable, and some absolutely brilliant. It's time again to focus on that third category.
Little Owl's Orange Scarf, by Tatyana Feeney is another brilliant bird-themed offering. (How we got a bunch of bird books this week, I don't know.) Using just two colours in the illustrations throughout the whole book, Feeney crafts a great story about a little owl who constantly tries to lose his long, itchy, orange scarf. In the end, he gets a chance to make a scarf of his own; just the way he likes it. E loves this book and knows about half of the words, so this really is one of the first books that we properly read together. It's pretty awesome seeing him identify words from their pictures and remembering where they belong in the story.
Speaking of stories, it's officially nap time in this house, so it's time for me to break out the books and read with my little dude before he settles down in his bed.
