I’ve been sent a treasure trove of beautiful board books recently. Some are wonderful new editions of classics and some are brand new. We all know the benefits of starting the bedtime story habit with babies – bonding time, language acquisition, fun! So whether you’re looking for a new bedtime read or buying a gift for a little one, there’s sure to be something amongst this selection to entice you…

The Sheep Won’t Sleep

by Curtis Jobling & Tom McLaughlin

We are big fans of sheep, and if you were to visit our home you would find sheep everywhere. There are coasters and cups with sheep, tea-towels sporting sheep. We have several toy sheep and even a noughts and crosses sheepy game. So there really was no doubt that we would love this beautiful and engrossing picture book. Check out the Miss Ruby Heart review on YouTube.

We love all things sheepy so we could not help but fall in love with this wonderful story. It is all about a sleepy sheep dog who has to put one hundred naughty sheep to bed but…


The Sheep Won’t Sleep

This phrase is used throughout the book encouraging little ones to join in the reading. It is a fun, bright, colourful rhyming read.

No-Bot, the Robot with No BottomNo-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom by Sue Hendra

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is s bright, fun silly story about Bernard the robot who loses his bottom whilst in the park. Young readers will enjoy flicking through the pages and trying to find the bottom that is used for many different things. It is even used down on the beach.

It’s a story of friendship and how everyone comes together to try and help Bernard find his bottom.

A real laugh out loud story.
