Today is World Book Day. I've just read a lovely post over at The Moiderer about the favourite bedtime books she likes to read to her Little One and it has prompted me to tell you about The Boy's absolute favourite bedtime book.*
I love you through and through.
I love your top side. I love your bottom side.
I love your inside and outside.
I love your happy side, and your blue side,
your silly side, your hullabaloo side.
I love your fingers and toes, your ears and nose.
I love your hair and eyes, your giggles and cries.
I love you running and walking, silent and talking.
I love you through and though…
yesterday, today and tomorrow too.
We all adore this book, and have little actions that go with each declaration. The Boy knows it so well now that he can recite the ends of each line and complete the action; he also turns the pages and says the main word associated with it. It is such a lovely book to read at bedtime and send your little one off to the land of nod with happy thoughts of how much he is loved.
