Product details

My First Library is a thoughtfully curated book bundle which gives newborns, babies and young toddlers the best daytime or bedtime reads. Although an infant won't understand everything you read, reading aloud to your baby is an enjoyable shared activity and it's important for your baby's brain. Reading to your baby ensures that by the time babies reach their first birthday they will have learned all the sounds needed to speak their native language. This book bundle includes 8 books that have simple text and clear pictures most suited for babies and young toddlers. 

The book bundle includes:

 

1. Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? is a children's picture book designed to help toddlers associate colors and meanings to objects. Written and illustrated by Bill Martin, Jr. and Eric Carle, each spread leads seamlessly into the next and young children will delight in the colourful collage animals and simple repetitive language. The exuberantly coloured artwork and favourite animals make this book the perfect introduction to looking and learning about colours.

2. The Very Hungry Caterpillar 

The Very Hungry Caterpillar is a classic children's story which is the essential first book for babies. It has sold over 50 million copies worldwide. Its lively and colourful collage illustrations and its deceptively simple, hopeful story have helped it become the most read children's book in Britain. Eric Carle's iconic illustrations have inspired generations of little readers, and his books are must-haves for every nursery.

 

3. Goodnight Moon
This gentle bedtime story, which has lulled generations of children to sleep, is the perfect first book to share at bedtime.

In a great green room a little bunny is tucked up snugly and safely in bed and is getting ready to say goodnight to all the familiar things in his room, one by one.

Margaret Wise Brown's comforting, rhythmical text accompanied by the warmth of Clement Hurd's classic mid-century illustrations make Goodnight Moon a timeless picture book, which is known and loved around the world. Printed now with a beautifully vivid orange pantone ink to recapture the magic of the 1947 original, Goodnight Moon makes the perfect birthday or christening gift.

4. Dear Zoo

Toddlers and parents alike love Rod Campbell's classic lift-the-flap book Dear Zoo ever since it was first published in 1982.

'I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet . . .'

Young children will love lifting the flaps to discover the animals the zoo has sent - a monkey, a lion and even an elephant! But will they ever manage to send the perfect pet? With bright, bold artwork, a catchy refrain and a whole host of favourite animals, Dear Zoo is a must-have for every child's bookshelf. The thick card pages, chunky cased cover and sturdy flaps make it perfect for small hands to flip and hold the book.

5. Guess How Much I Love You

Guess How Much I Love You is an enlarged board book edition of a much-loved classic that has sold over 50 million copies worldwide!

Sometimes, when you love someone very, very much, you want to find a way of describing how much you treasure them. But, as Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare discover, love is not always an easy thing to measure. The story of Little and Big Nutbrown Hares' efforts to express their love for each other has become a publishing phenomenon that children will ask for time and again.

6. The Smartest Giant In Town

Meet a very helpful giant in this funny, big-hearted tale from the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.

George wished he wasn't the scruffiest giant in town. So when he sees a new shop selling giant-sized clothes, he decides it's time for a new look: smart trousers, smart shirt, stripy tie, shiny shoes. Now he's the smartest giant in town . . . until he bumps into some animals who desperately need his help – and his clothes!

7. The Giant Jumperee

 Rabbit was hopping home one day when he heard a loud voice coming from inside his burrow.
"I'M THE GIANT JUMPEREE
AND I'M SCARY AS CAN BE!"

When Rabbit's friends Cat, Bear and Elephant come to help they are each scared away in turn by the mysterious voice.

He can squash you like a flea
He will sting you like a bee
And he's taller than a tree!

But who is the Giant Jumperee?

Inspired by a traditional African tale, this is a new read-aloud classic from internationally bestselling author Julia Donaldson, beautifully brought to life by award-winning illustrator Helen Oxenbury.

8. Polar Bear, Polar Bear, What Do You Hear?

What will you hear when you read this book to a preschool child?

Lots of noise!

Children will chant the rhythmic words. They'll make the sounds the animals make. And they'll pretend to be the zoo animals featured in the book-- look at the last page!

Bill Martin Jr. and Eric Carle are two of the most respected names in children's education and children's illustrations. This collaboration, their first since the classic Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? (published more than thirty years ago and still a best-seller) shows two masters at their best.
