"Olivia the pig book"

I’ve just bought my first book about Olivia the pig.   This book’s really high up on my top toddler books list.  The black & white drawings with splashes of red are so, so lovely.  Olivia’s little antics are super entertaining and the other characters are all very recognisable like the annoying little brother and the mother who tries to be strict but fails miserably.  Remind you of anyone? And the best bit – the books happy and fun without any annoying wetness. Olivia the pig board book costs £5.39 with free delivery from amazon.  There are several in the series but this board book is perfect for under 2’s.


Pretty Pru

books for toddlers pretty pruI recently came across this book by Polly Dunbar and loved it so much I bought, it even though ebabee no. 1’s a bit young.  It’s one in a series of ‘Tilly and Friends’ stories but I haven’t yet bought the others.  This ones about a handbag thief on the loose and Pretty Pru’s the victim.  The handbag of course contains make-up, after all which lady wouldn’t have make-up in her bag? Pretty Pru’s no exception! The illustrations are superb and compliment the text very well.  The best bit though, is this book manages to be happy and cheerful without any annoying over – sentimentality.  This is definitely up there in my list of gifts for older toddlers.  The hardcover one costs £6.39 with free delivery.
