World book day challenge day 3 prompt : Childhood

So please, oh please, we beg, we pray, go throw your TV set away, and in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall.

for #worldbookdaychallenge day 3 prompt : Childhood
I’ve been brought up as an early reader myself. The first few of the books that I was given were the ones of Helen Oxenbury. She is a great illustrator and writer of Children’s picture books. I can , I hear , I see , we are going on a bear hunt , all fall down, clap hands to name a few.
But my most favorite was ‘ Tickle Tickle ‘ by her.
The book has very few pages but illustrated with cute kids on all .
The book goes about how the children play in mud, take a bath, get ready for bed and time for Tickle Tickle.
She is very well known for her soft color illustrations which definitely is a must for toddler books.
On a sad note, the books I owned couldn’t be retrieved from what was left after the December 2015 Chennai floods.
But when I came to know that @thelittlebookhub had a preloved copy of this wonderful book, I never had second thoughts and immediately blocked it so that I could hand down the same emotion I had with that book to Cheeni.
Cheeni loves looking at the kids on the book and when I say Tickle Tickle she starts giggling. So this book is definitely apt for the prompt : Childhood . I hope to pass this on to my grandchildren as well.
