my 6 years old was first introduced to Jeremy Strong in school, he read 'The Pirate bed' and was so taken by it that he asked for more books of the same author so no glossy pictures, or funny language but the type of writing sold the next book... well done! of course when we look at more books and 'the famous BOTTOM popped out it was sold to m son instantly - which kid at that age doesn't like a bit of toilet humour? (he was a big lover of Captain Underpants) how to recognise a good children's book?
a; they get quiet when you start reading
b: sit next to you not wonder around the room
c; giggle a lot! (ok that is not always the case as 'The Pirate bed' isn't funny at all but I like the sound of giggles just before they drift to sleep)
d: they ask you to buy another book
e; they carry on reading with a torch when you left the room...
all criteria met!
if you are like me, who think life doesn't have to be serious and that the best way at showing your children it's worth to read by presenting them a good mix of book they will enjoy listening to it's worth it
