Prompt : Favorite
Cheeni’s most favorite currently of all the books she owns now is ” Is this my nose?” Smile into the mirror By Georgie Birkett.
This wonderful book could be your toddlers very first book.
Yes it was for Cheeni. The book has colourful pictures of kids showing various parts like eyes, nose, mouth, ears and chin.
Not only that the book also has a flap mirror on the last page for the baby to look at themselves.
Each page of the has an animal and a kid on the other page pointing out the various parts.
The last page just shows all of them put together just like a summary of what of shown in the book entirely.
The book is written in a style that the toddler is being asked is this your nose/eyes/ears/mouth/chin ? And answered yes.
The mirror definitely is a surprise element here. But the only concern here being it’s a flap mirror it was sadly ripped off in one or two days we received the book.
Georgie Birketts books are known for simple writing style and casual illustrations.
Made me find out that there were more of his works that needed to be included in Cheeni’s library.
Some of them are A for Apple, 123 count with me, grow it, fix it, cook it, clean it and the big night book.
What Cheeni loved
*The cute kids showing their parts
*The flap mirror that was pulled out sooner
What Cheeni learnt
*The various parts illustrated in the book
Cheeni now brings this book from her reading corner when you say ” nose book”. Cheeni now is able to point out to parts when called out just like the kids in the book.

World book day challenge day 1 prompt : Earth

A book is a garden, an orchard, a storehouse, a party, a company by the way,

a counselor, a multitude of counselorrs.

~ Charles Baudelaire

Posting for the prompt #1 of #worldbookdaychallenge Earth.

What more describes the life on Earth than our very own Eric Carl’s The very hungry caterpillar.

This beautiful book depicts the life of a caterpillar evolving into a butterfly. Cheeni learnt the days of the week, numbers, colors and what not.

Here is what was the inspriation for this book in his words: “One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called A Week with Willi the Worm. Then later my editor, who didn’t like the idea of a worm, suggested a caterpillar and I said “Butterfly!” And the rest is history.”

The life cycle is beautifully written down and illustrated the egg , the caterpillar, the cocoon and the big butterfly.

Did you know the book was first published in 1969, that’s when our parents were studying. And it is still selling over 49 million copies worldwide and is being translated over many world languages.

The book also has bright pictures of sun, moon ,leaves ,food which makes it even more interesting for kids .

This made me discover a lot more of Eric Carl’s book to introduce to her.

Cheeni loves it when I read it out loud to her. She recognizes sun and the moon now.

What Cheeni loved

* The big pictures

* The colours

* The way it’s illustrated.

She now knows numbers, colors, sun, moon.

Kids these days are more interested, given the choice of books they have and their types.
