Rory loves stories and books and is very happy to look at the pictures on his own or sit on my knee and listen to one. This could be to do with the fact that I love reading and as a teacher would often share stories several times a day (I’m yet to meet a child who isn’t captivated and develops as a result of regular story telling). We usually read many books throughout the day, but even if we’ve been out and about or too busy for them, we always start our evening routine by sharing one. There are many terrific children’s books and luckily most have been made into board books so it doesn’t matter when Rory helps me to turn the page (which he loves to do). He particularly likes rhyming stories so current favourites are ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and ‘Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?’.
