Book Sniffing With Dad


Steven Lenton interviews Director of "We're Going on a Bear Hunt" Robin Shaw about his brand new picture book Me and My Dad published by Hodder Children's Books 

Here is a list of some of my favourite reads for very little book sniffers which might just be perfect for sharing on Fathers Day (or any other day)! #BookSniffingWithDad 

“A is for Adventure” in this supremely stylish nautical themed introduction to the alphabet. The bright, humour-filled illustrations will be the perfect trigger to inspire a love of learning.

If you like this you will also like A Sea Voyage! published by Thames and Hudson 

Confusion ensues as a little girl realises her beloved Grandad has been replaced by a rather mischievous Penguin. A delightful tale of mistaken identity and the importance of grandparents.

If you like this you will also LOVE Colin and Lee Carrot and Pea also by Morgan Hood! Published by Two Hoots 

Perfect for pre-school palaeontologists! This little girl has her sights set on a pet that is slightly larger and considerably scalier than the norm. A joy to share anytime.

If you like this you will also like WHY? by Tracey Corderoy illustrated by Tim Warnes 

With familiar animals, shapes and scenes to spot, and plenty of detail to enjoy. This fun exploration of before and after consequences is perfect for exploring over and over.

Follow the cut-out hole and lead the reader on an intergalactic adventure into outer space and beyond. Encounter aliens and help steer the spacecraft on its mission.

A brilliantly anarchic feud between a triangle and a square evolves using stark black and white illustrations and a clever simple text. A fantastically funny read.

Chopping down trees means Big Jim Hickory needs to find a new home for his woodland friends. Perhaps his beard would make the perfect temporary residence?

If you like this you will also like The Bear Who Stared also by Duncan Beadie (on of my faves book ever) 

A visual feast, this introduction to trucks will have little ones entranced for hours on end, with characters to seek and find on each page. Bright, bold and brilliantly bizarre.

If you like this you will love Mr Tweed's Busy Day by Jim Stoten Published by Flying Eye Books 

What Ted lacks in stature he certainly makes up for with his big imagination in this delightful new pre-school series. Familiar themes are explored with charm and delicate humour.

If you like this you'll love Pom Pom is Super also by Soppy Henn 

A joyful observation of the special relationship between parent and child. The perfect gift and a lovely reminder that children cherish the little moments as much as us adults do.
