Today we are mainly reading



Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendack, Erbie can't get enough of this.




or this...



This is out from the rather fabulous Holborn library, where Erbie now has his first library card.
The pictures are all appliqued, and it's about names of baby animals, you know - cygnets, tadpoles, foals, chicks and the like. What is a baby kangaroo called? A joey - yes!



Every night without fail, when we get to ‘Goodnight stars’,  our star shaped fairy lights get switched off and its time to snuggle down.



Owl babies or ‘owbees’ as Erbie calls it, my favourite, more for the pictures than the story.
