A week or two ago I was sent some books from Campbell and they were perfect for our three. We were sent a selection of books as follows:
- The London Noisy Tube
- Night Animals – First Explorers
- Sea Creatures – First Explorers
- Bumpy Books Colours and Animals
- Things That Go – Search & Find
The Noisy Tube book has been well received by all three children. Mr D and Miss E love all things train related and have had me showing them videos of the tube on YouTube. I’ve made a short video here on Instagram showing the book in more detail. Mr H loves this and I love it as it’s one I can ask the older two to read to him when I have some jobs to do, or simply just want to drink a cup of tea in peace!
Mr H’s absolute favourites have to be the bumpy books. I love these as there are so many ways we can use them. Initially they’re just great for getting Mr H interested in books. They’re lovely and sturdy (and withstand his chewing!. Also, they’re brilliant for using with the older two to extend their use of descriptive language as they tell me how the different things feel and the patterns are. There is a short IG video here of these books.
Miss E is particulalry into the search and find style books so the search and find vehicles book is a real hit with her. We have spent a lot of time looking through this book. As well as the various vehicles to find, there are lots of other things to chat about and find within the pages. Again, there is a short video here.
I really like these Campbell books and will be keeping an eye out for other search and find books in the series.
