August #FLBabyBookClub

I’m back with the third book club post! Thank you so much to everyone who’s joined in and left me recommendations for future books. Our little library is growing!

During July, I found a whole bunch of new gems but these were Seth’s three favourites (based on giggles and hitting the of the pages).

Hello Mummy – Ladybird (2014)

Last month, we featured Hello Daddy so I decided to pick up Hello Mommy too and Seth loves it just as much. Like I said before, these books don’t have a story but teach kids about colours, textures and animals. They’re adorable little books.

Buy Hello Mummy

That’s not my Unicorn – Fiona Watt (2017)

I’m sure you have heard of the “That’s not my…” books. There are SO many. (That’s not my Frog, Lion, Monkey and Monster to name a few.) The Unicorn version is the latest one in the series and was released in June of this year.
I had to buy it because I am unicorn obsessed. I think this is the prettiest book out of them all because the cover sparkles in the light, and the edges of the cardboard pages are holographic. So on trend. Seth loves it too (no surprises there).

Buy That’s not my Unicorn

The First Hippo on the Moon – David Walliams (2014)

I’ve saved the best for last! This book is hysterical! It follows the story of a Hippo that wants to go to the moon, on a rocket built by her jungle buddies and powered by pongy poop. Things go horribly wrong, as expected.
The story is also a play and I will definitely take Seth to go see it when he is a bit older.

Buy The First Hippo on the Moon
