Little Learners Books

Leo and I both love a good book, one with bright images and plenty to keep Leo stimulated and interested.

He will bring up books of his choosing these days and hop up on the sofa so we can have a little bit of quiet time and to read a book together. Leo is still at an age where they can’t be too wordy as he loses interest and starts flipping the pages backward and forward so that I cannot carry on reading to him.

Leo much prefers to flick through the book himself and study the images intently. That is why I am a big fan of cardboard books with big chunky pages, as Leo is not the most gentle toddler when it comes to turning over a page at 100mph. I have witnessed a few casualties when it comes to paper back books and Leo, I try my hardest to keep those kind of books out of his reach until we can sit down together and read them.

Leo has been sent a lovely selection of Little Learners books, each that has their own unique quality that keeps Leo by my side and taking every little bit in. His favourite out of the 3 books we have been looking at is ‘Twinkle Twinkle’.

Twinkle Twinkle is unique in the sense that is has both light and sound aspects that you can activate by pressing the buttons along the top. The buttons are easy for Leo to press and reward him with twinkling sounds and of course the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. As the sounds play there is a red light that flashes around the buttons.

Another book out of our lovely selection is the Little Learners Hickory Dickory Dock Finger Puppet book. It is a lovely sized book with a little mouse coming right out of the front, a mouse that you can bring to life by merely wiggling your finger through the back of the book to make him move. Leo loved how the mouse was coming to get him and loved the simple story.

When we read this book Leo always says ‘tick, tock, tick, tock’ as we very regularly sing this nursery rhyme together.

The final book is called My Day and is a touch and fee book. It has a great range of different sensations from the soft baby's blanket to the bumpy ball. It takes you through your daily routine with simple text and lovely bright illustrations.

Each of the Little Learner books has lovely thick cardboard pages which are perfect for little hands who are still learning to be gentle. The textures, lights, sounds and puppetry each bring the books to life in their own special way and shows what a wide selection of different books that they have available.

Leo and I both give the Little Learners range a big thumbs up and our pleased to have them on our book shelf. 

Here is a little clip of Leo and Daddy having a read through the My Day book, Leo is a big fan of the little Yellow duck in the bath tub!
