Books I read in April


book-club-clipart-bookI actually managed to finish a few books this month – hurrah! I haven’t had the time lately to read much (I’m sure you can understand when you take Button into account, who is now six months old and still doesn’t sleep!), but yes, I did get to the end of a very small handful of books, which feels great!

I read this children’s classic to Tadpole at a rate of a chapter a night at bedtime. He loved it as much as I did as a child. Of course, he’s already familiar with the Gene Wilder movie, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, and went to class on World Book Day dressed as Charlie Bucket (see HERE), so we already knew we’d be onto a winner. It has begun a tour of Dahl’s books which we will now read to him…

This was one of my favourites as a child and it certainly delighted Taspole when we read it to him. The chapters are much shorter so he got two or even three most nights and we were finished much faster than with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but I think he enjoyed this one even more, simply because the two lead characters are so disgusting. And of course there’s the monkeys. Every kid loves monkeys, so it was a win on every level!
