Just thinking of certain books,
takes me right back to my own childhood.
I have really fond memories of reading Beatrix Potter books,
of saving my pocket money to add to my collection.
I love that they were such cute little books
with such beautiful illustrations
of a magical world.
Both my children are still a little two small for Beatrix Potter,
the language is a little old fashioned and too hard for them to understand,
but I do look forward to the day when I can share my childhood favourites with them.
However, until that time comes,
my beautiful girl has been making do with her own version of the classic collection.
Night Night Peter Rabbit is a baby perfect fabric book version
with crinkly pages and a soft-to-stroke Peter Rabbit on the front cover.
The book provides a lovely introduction to some of Beatrix Potter's most memorable characters
including Peter Rabbit, Benjamin Bunny and Jemima Puddleduck.
And it really is delightful to look through with my little lady.
Unlike lots of other fabric baby books which can be a bit garish,
this stays true to the illustrations in the original books
with soft coloured pictures and muted tones.
It's an absolutely delightful little book
and perfect for even the teeniest of book worms.

Last week for What We're Reading
It was a book that looked right up my street,
so I ordered it for my children.
And it's already proving to be a bit hit with my beautiful boy.
So thanks for the recommendation Kelle.
Kelle and I have been loving sharing our favourite reads each week
and are opening it up to all of you too.
So if you have shared a book that you're reading with your children
then why not add it to the linky
(it will automatically appear on both our blogs, you don't need to enter it twice.)
