We are very sorry to hear of the recent death of Jill Murphy, creator of the Worst Witch novels and many wonderful picturebooks including Peace at Last , Whatever Next and Five Minutes Peace. Her books enthral children and parents, becoming family favourites and inspiring story play. Perfect for sharing again and again, with themes and storylines to engage both adults and children and colourful illustrations, rich with detail.
It’s a big day when your child starts school. There are many changes that you and your child are likely to experience. One of these involves learning to read and ways you can help at home. Try to keep reading fun and a special activity that you both enjoy.
At Lovemybooks we hope our book-based activities give you lots of ideas for choosing books and ways to share and have fun with them. See here for more information on how children learn to read and reading with your child.
Almost Anything by Sophy Henn age 3-5
September is a time for new experiences, whether starting nursery or school for the first time, or learning a new skill such as how to swim. For children feeling a bit anxious about the prospect this lovely picturebook might be a perfect way to reassure them. Jennie shared Almost Anything and our activity ideas with her three-year-old, George.
‘This book was always going to be a winner as it featured a character called George, a rabbit whose friends are doing a variety of fun things and he doesn’t think he can, so he doesn’t join in till a wise old bear gives him a magical paper hat.’
