If like most people you are running out of things to keep your children (or yourself!) entertained, what better way to unwind then to pick up a good book. Reading can boost happiness, reduce anxiety and is a great way to escape from the real world. So, round up the kids, put your feet up and get stuck into a good book... Here are the Wolferstans Family Team’s top recommendations for children:
The Tiger who came to Tea:
The book tells the story of a girl called Sophie, her mother, and a tiger who disrupts their afternoon tea.
Our team says: “This is a great little story and has also been made into a short film which can be found on All 4 Catch Up – double the fun!”
The Gruffalo and The Gruffalo’s child:
In this book the young Gruffalo sets off into the woods to find the Big Bad Mouse that her father has told her stories about. On her adventure she meets the snake, fox, owl and finally the famous mouse.
The Guardian says, “The Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson is a sequel to the fantastic The Gruffalo. The story is told in lovely rhyming language and can be brought to life with some good voice variations!”
Our team says: “The pictures in the book are full of colour to keep our attention and we loved the cheeky little mouse.”
Room on the Broom:
While flying with her cat on her broomstick, the wind blows a witch’s hat from her head. Luckily, a friendly dog rescues it and, as a reward, is invited to travel with them on the broom. Throughout the tale, she encounters a series of other characters who each help the witch to recover various possessions that she loses along the way – but will there be enough room on the broom for them all?
Our team says: “This favourite picture book is a real delight: an ingenious and humorous story with a rhythmical text that is ideal for reading aloud.”
5 Minutes Peace:
This is the story of Mrs Large the elephant who just needs five minutes of peace and quiet away from her boisterous children! So, taking refuge in the bathroom, she fills herself a hot, foamy bubble bath and takes in a tray of her favourite breakfast and the morning paper. But there’s never a dull moment with the Larges, and it soon becomes clear that mum’s quiet time is to be very short-lived!
Our team say: “My 3 year old enjoys this book!”
