Since there are a few of us with babies and little kids, I thought I'd start a thread on children's books.

Where's Spot?

It's dinner time and Spot is missing! His mum, Sally, goes looking for him. She seems pretty unconcerned about all the dangerous animals hiding around the house and probably ruining the joint.

Spoilers: there's a bear in there, a lion under the stairs (watch out, Harry) and a crocodile under the bed.

Any one of these could have eaten Spot (it is dinner time after all …)

The hippo in the piano seems to defy the laws of physics (which I didn't study, so feel free to correct me here).


Kids will like: lifting/tearing the flaps, the 'tock' with resident snake, making monkey noises when opening the wardrobe, and death metal turtle*

You will need: glue to fix the flaps when they've been lifted with a little too much force or enthusiasm

*death metal turtle:

Bain does the voice as a death metal growl. This always gets a giggle and is now a required part of reading the book and has been added to other Spot books where he appears.

Very good to see you teaching him the classics Hekate+Bain :)

Have you got Go the Fuck to Sleep? If you haven't already I assume you'll be getting a few copies of them as gifts shortly haha.

Dog


Dog has lots of textured panels and pull tabs to make dogs move.
It has a rhyming story describing each dog on the page.



Kids will love: touching all the furry tails, ears etc., trying to pull off moving parts and learning to work the pull tabs

Parents will love: the fact they already bought glue to fix Where's Spot and can now use it to glue heads and legs back on in this book


Hey Mummy, this is my book

No but we've seen it. Very apt since Aedan was up for four hours last night …

Nick refused to go to sleep until about 10pm last night (he usually goes to sleep about 7-730) and instead wanted to continue doing acrobatics in his sleping bag, spitting out his dummy and rolling on his face and then crying about being stuck.

Eventualy I got the shits, got him up out of his bag took him to the couch and lay him on my lap/chest so I could keep watching TV. Fucker was asleep in under 2 min.
