300 Picture Book Challenge - January progress

We missed the first 10 days of January (tho that doesn't mean we've not been reading books!), just forgotten what they are and not recorded.

10th January

We're a little late starting this challenge .
Last night we read Ben's special book he got for Christmas... Spiderman.  But not just any old Spiderman this one was special.  It featured him and his friends.  He loved it!

We got in from taking Ben to school today and the postman called. he bought with him Walking Through The Jungle - our prize from Mummy's Little Stars Barefoot Book competition.   Noah was engrossed in it ... (review to follow, keep an eye out).

Whilst writing my 'flashback friday' I shared the Poddington Peas story with the boys.

We finished the day by reading Thomas The Tank Engine: Charlie before bedtime.  We have the boxset of Thomas books as well as other specials and Noah does enjoy them.

Total to date:  4/ 300

11th January

Tonights bedtime story was Noah's centre of the story book. This was one I won just before Christmas The Mummy adventure's blog Noah in Jupiter on the Loose. (review to follow, keep an eye out).

Total to date: 5/ 300

12th January

Both boys chose a story at bedtime tonight.
Noah went with Artie Beat likes to.... and Ben with a classic in this house, Topsy and Tim go on an aeroplane.

Artie Beat is a great book I got when I was teaching from the British Heart Foundation.  It teaches children about exercise and keeping fit through an interactive colourful story.

Total to date:  6/ 300

 The school reading book for this week was only changed once (bad parents), but Ben enjoyed reading us The Zip, one of the Oxford Reading Tree Stories every night.

Total to date:  7/ 300

Cranky (The Crane), another Thomas book was Noah's choice today, whilst Ben went with Letterland ABC.

I am SURE we read more books this week, it's rare for the boys to go to bed without a story but I've not logged them :(
