Book Sharing Monday

5 Oct

If there is one author above all others that I would recommend for first books for babies and toddlers it’s Rod Campbell. His books are brilliant.

The stories are very simple, repetition is used to great effect and both my boys have LOVED reading his books.

Even now (at the wise old age of 5) BC still loves it when I pull out our very favourite Rod Campbell book from the shelf. And little Bean loves it too.

It’s this one:

Oh Dear

It’s a simple, yet lovely story about a little boy (Buster, who features in other Rod Campbell books) who goes to a farm to visit his grandma. He is sent in search of eggs. He approaches all different farm animals in search of eggs until he finally sources them with the chickens.

The gorgeous refrain ‘No eggs here, Oh dear!’ is one of my favourite in any book, and quite possibly why Little Bean’s most common cry of lament when something goes wrong is ‘Oh dear!’.

Definitely should be on all little ones’ first book shelf.
