I think as a kid you can never have too many books - but in Lucas' case, he has so many, he forgets (and us also) what a great selection he does have.
So tonight I cleaned up his bookshelves to make it more appealing for him to pick a newey.
You see every night we tell him to go choose 2 books to read before bed, and 9 times out of 10 he will pick the same pop up truck books. I know kids love repetition but this drives us bonkers. When he does finally choose a different one, its always a long story, right when I want to watch my favorite tv shows (this will be on a Tuesday night or during Farmer wants a wife!).
When I was sorting through them all, I came across all of these lovelies that I have decided to move to my own workroom shelves now - just to keep them safe of course!
This is one of my favorite books - 'Penguin dreams' by Vivian Walsh and illustrated by J.otto Seibold. It is such a gorgeous book - with lovely kooky pictures that will keep the kids mesmerized for ages; for there is so much happening on each page.
I brought mine at a bookshop near me, but you can buy yours here.
