Happy Birthday To You by Nicola Slater is a perfect gift for a little someone having a special birthday.
Since I just received it for my 2nd birthday I have not stopped pressing the sound buttons to listen to the beautiful music! The story is quite simple but the gorgeous illustrations and the recognisable music makes this book highly interactive and charming. It follows four animal musicians as they travel to a cafe to celebrate Otter's birthday. Each page showcases a different animal practicing the birthday song on a different musical instrument.
Then there is a big-band finale with a delightful light-up birthday cake, which I try to blow every time I read it! - Scroll across to hear the music and see the light-up candle - The sound-buttons are great for little hands who will have no issue pressing them. 🎼
On our blog today: This is a great book for opening up a dialogue about the ways in which our families and our personal situations are all different, but at the same time, alike.
Told in the first person, this is, quite simply, an explanation of what makes up the main character’s rather complex family situation. There are half-siblings and ‘whole’ siblings, parents, step-parents and partners. “While some kids have a family tree, we have a family forest.” This book is a reminder of the many varied family situations people come from and the fact that ‘normal’ is very hard to define. When I look around my own family and friends and the families of the children in my class at school, there are loads of different ‘normals’ and it’s so very important to remain mindful of these differences, in whatever form they arrive.
Pierwsza książeczka mojego dziecka. Kupiłam ją jeszcze będąc w ciąży, zeby razem ze mną czekała na swojego pierwszego właściciela. Nie spodziewałam się tylko, ze mojemu maluchowi tak się spodoba od pierwszych tygodni. Książka z serii Dobra Książeczka przeznaczona jest dla dzieciaczków w wieku od 0-3 miesięcy. Ilustracje to proste kształty w kontrastowych kolorach dostosowane do nierozwiniętego jeszcze wzroku maluszka. Polecamy gorąco. #dzidzikczyta#dzidziusczyta#book#books#kidsbooks#ksiazkidladzieci#bookstagram#calapolskaczytadzieciom
