As I have mentioned on this blog before, we enjoy reading books in our home and we have a lot of them too! I think that books are something you just cannot have enough of.
Another popular thing in our home is Justin Fletcher. Burton loves watching him on CBeebies and lets face it with his silly faces and voices he is the perfect children's entertainer.
Those clever people from Little Tiger Press have teamed up with Justin and had him narrate some great stories on a selection of picture book and CD sets which have been written by Steve Smallman. Genius!
Imagine a time when the earth was new and all creatures apart from birds were just dull and drab looking. What a dreary place to be a part of. That's what a monkey thinks until it finds a paintbox and two brushes. Armed with a palette of brightly coloured paints, the monkey sneaks around while the animals sleep and colours them in.
"Someone painted this kingfisher blue ,
I'm going to paint all the animals too!"
Of course when they wake up the other animals complain at the monkey, but bear has a plan......
The Very Greedy Bee
The bee in this book loves to eat all the flower nectar and not share it with anyone else. Of course in doing so he grows fat and then falls asleep with his full stomach out in the warm sunshine. The problem is the when the greedy bee wakes up it is dark and now he has lost his way. Luckily with the help of some little insects he finds his way home and learns a lesson about the amount of nectar he consumes and about sharing it with others.
Smelly Peter The Great Pea Eater
Peter is a young boy who loves nothing more than eating peas. A lot of peas. Peas for breakfast, peas for lunch and peas for tea!! He is pea mad and as a result very smelly in the bottom region and end up turning green!! He gets the mickey taken out of him at school as it isn't cool to be green and smelly. however, one day he gets abducted by aliens on a flying saucer who take him to their planet Krell and make him green as they love his greenness and smelliness! However, they don't have peas on Krell and Peter needs to learn to eat foods over than his favourite peas and in doing so stops smelling and returns to his normal skin colour!! Will the aliens still want him as their king?
These are fantastic books. The stories are funny and the illustrations are so bright and really engage with you as you read the words. Burton has really enjoyed having them read to him, in particular The Monkey With A Bright Blue Bottom and The Very Greedy Bee both of which have been read several times!
Although Smelly Peter The Great Pea Eater is amusing and I like the premise behind the narrative, I do think some of the descriptions used are for slightly older children than my toddler!
However, as much as Burton has enjoyed listening to his mummy or daddy reading the books to him he has also liked hearing the CDs with Justin and here is the man himself reading an extract from Smelly Peter
