Alice's Favourite Books

I stole this idea from Kiy over at Rocking Chairs and a Tricycle - thanks Kiy!!!

'Whoever You Are' by Mem Fox

This book is gorgeous - very bright colours, striking artwork and an important message that we are all the same, no matter where we live.

'When I'm Feeling Happy' by Tracy Moroney

My Mum gave this to Alice last Christmas, along with another in the series, 'When I'm Feeling Loved'. The pictures are very cute, and the lessons taught in the books are fantastic. Alice can quote these and when she is happy she tells me she is 'full of joy mummy'!!!

'Dear Zoo' by Rod Campbell

A true classic 'lift the flap' book. The little person writes to the Zoo for a present, and they send a series of unsuitable pets until the final one. Alice just loves lifting the flaps!

'I Don't Have Your Eyes' by Carrie Kitze

One of the many adoption-related books I purchased during the loooooong wait or Alice. This book talks about how adopted children are dissimilar from their parents, but also about the things that make them alike.

'My Presents' by Rod Campbell

Another classic Rod Campbell lift the flap book. A series of birthday presents need to be 'opened' .

'Where is the Green Sheep?' by Mem Fox

Mem Fox writes fantastic books and this is no exception. The text rhymes beautifully and the pictures are very cute.

'Hooray For Fish' by Lucy Cousins

Probably Alice's favourite at the moment. It is very bright and colourful, and the ending is very special, with Little Fish finding 'the one he loves the best' - his Mum!!!

What a fantastic list! We only have one of those, we are going to have to get the others. Thanks for sharing, and playing along!

Cheers, Kiy

"Whoever You Are" is one of Mattea's all-time favorite books. Great idea for a blog post!!! We're always looking for new book ideas.
