Petra has become an avid listener to bedtime stories and has graduated from picture books to chapter books. She’s all over Enid Blyton’s Enchanted Wood series. And we’ve read lots of the old faithfuls of young children’s literature. Winnie the Pooh and Pippi Longstocking, neither of whom appealed to her much, The Wombles, Paddington Bear, Olga da Polga, Mrs Pepperpot, and we’re currently working through Mr Popper’s Penguins.
Keeping ahead of her is proving a bit tricky because she’s so voracious. And so I need something more. Any half-remembered delights from your childhoods that I could dust off and share with Petra would be gratefully received.
