I was extremely pleased with the little haul that I picked up in my lunchbreak at the end of last week. I've been after a simple book about the body for Harry for a while, and this one is pitched perfectly. He is absolutely fascinated by it, especially learning about the skeleton and the digestive system. We've also been reading a few short poems together so I picked up this book of children's poems. Some of them are a bit strange and there's a section on 'Creepy Poems' but I think that he'll like them. Then I also found a book of Number Rhymes which is brilliant, each page is a different number with lots of little poems and activities.
My favourite book is an Usborne book - Learning Games. It's fantastic! It has lots of little games in it to help children learn their letters and numbers. The book itself contains the backgrounds for the games, and then there are instructions to make themed counters and cards to use with it. The letter ones are a bit advanced yet but I think that the number games look just right, and I've bookmarked a few to try. They are quite simple and could be easily adapted, I might just have a few to share!

Finally I couldn't resist these two vintage Ladybird books - Dinosaurs and Aesop's Fables. They're a bit battered, but at 10p each I couldn't leave them. I think that Harry will like them but they will have to be for supervised reading, I don't want them to fall apart!
I will be linking up with Magpie Monday over at Me and My Shadow.
