Nu går det helt galt med de der #septemberbøger 😳

Jeg havde glædet mig til 10.september, hvor jeg selvfølgelig skulle citere #pippi (eller #astridlindgren). Jeg nåede det ikke igår, og kunne ikke finde bogen her til morgen, men citater er nogenlunde sådan her 'den, der er stærk, skal også være venlig' - så enkelt, og alligevel fuldendt.

Jeg har (stadig) børnebøger stående, selv om mine børn nu er unge mennesker. Jeg har masser af favoritter (der er måske en trend, det der med at valg er svært), men en af dem er absolut #hvadnuhvis 🥰 For søren det er en god bog. En anden børnebog, der blander sig med arbejdsbøgerne, der står tæt på, er #vierallefødtfrie, hvilket er en ret optimistisk titel!

My daughter was audibly laughing with this silly story by #rosscollins . We have reread it over and over at her request. #whatdoesananteatereat is a delightful, silly tale 2018 #nosycrow #books #childrensbooks #bedtimestories www.candlewick.com #humor #kidsbooks #kidjokes

My youngest just informed me that earlier today, as he played outside, he heard somebody walking by ask a small person in a buggy 'Are you looking forward to reading I Am a Tiger when we get home?' Which is rather lovely. And rather lovely that he told me.

I hope they enjoy it! #IAmaTiger #picturebook #RossCollins #Daymade

Me and Kid1 have been enjoying Ross Collins’ There’s a Bear On My Chair so much that I treated us to This Zoo is Not For You, and it did not disappoint!

Platypus turns up at the zoo with an envelope on interview day. Thinking he wants to join the zoo, a series of rather snobby animals interview him and declare ‘this zoo is not for you’, until he gives up and leaves. Some self-examination follows: ‘I think I was unkind, were you?’ and the animals’ guilt is compounded when they discover the envelope and realise that platypus had actually come to invite them to a party. Luckily, platypus accepts their apology and a great time is had by all.
While the concept of an interview took a bit of explaining, Kid1 really enjoys this book. The rhyming text has pace and humour, and conveys the animals’ condescension perfectly, while Collins’ illustrations are expressive and funny. Platypus doesn’t get a word in till the end of the book (and when he does, it doesn’t rhyme, which I really like - he is not the same as the zoo animals), which may resonate with children who sometimes are not heard by grown ups. The animals’ exclusion of the platypus will also chime with children’s worry about being left out. It also gives a chance to talk about kindness, assumptions and apologies.
The party page at the end of the book is joyous and full of great details - plenty to look at and talk about. A great book. .

My family and I sometimes play this game where we try to come up with as many rhyming words as possible and turn them into a conversation. You know, like, “What is that? Is it a cat? He is quite fat.” (There’s something so satisfying about rhyming words!) Put this game into book form, and you might get something like the delightful THERE’S A BEAR ON MY CHAIR by Ross Collins. This is such a fun read-aloud with great rhythm and rhyming. My kids think it’s funny to see the mouse get more and more annoyed while the bear just sits, nonchalantly doing his thing. Plus, how can anyone resist a book with a rhyme like, “I must admit he has some flair. He has fine taste in leisure wear”?

This here is the cutest munchkin I know! For her first birthday, I gave my friend's daughter a copy of Ross Collins' latest creation, This Is A Dog. It's a children's book but, trust me, you'll find it funny too 🙊🐶⁠

Todays book week book "There's a Bear on My Chair". Fantastic rhyming in this book. Always interesting to see what solutions the children come up with for the mouses problem of not being able to use his chair because the bear is on it. #bookweek #exploringbooks #readingwithkids #theresabearonmychair #rosscollins #fdc #familydaycare #childcare

You know us: we can't resist a doggo. And if it's a mischievous doggo... well, that's even better!
---
So it's no surprise that we adore Ross Collins' hilarious new book This is a Dog, following the adventures of a cheeky canine who paws his way into a first book of animals - and then won't let any of the other creatures have their turn. Unsurprisingly, they're not too happy about that...

We're thrilled to have a sneak peek at the book so take a look, then follow the link in our bio to find out how you could win one of five copies!

Wat hebben wij weer 😂gelachen om een prentenboek!

Ik ben een tijger🐯 van Karl Newson en Ross Collins

Muis weet het zeker: hij is een tijger. ‘Nee’, zeggen de andere dieren en ze proberen muis ervan te overtuigen dat hij echt geen tijger is. Maar daar trapt muis niet in. Hij is een tijger. Zelfs tijger kan muis niet overtuigen.
Totdat muis bij een beekje komt en zichzelf ziet in het water. Wacht, hij is geen tijger maar hij is een

Dit prentenboek tovert echt een lach op je gezicht. De tekeningen zijn echt perfect bij de tekst. De verbazing op de gezichten van de andere dieren zijn echt geweldig.

We’re excited that #newreleasetuesday tomorrow includes I Am a Tiger - this is a masterful treatise on existentialist epistemology that challenges the reader with important and timeless questions about the nature of identity and the definition of self; it’s ... (actually, it’s another delightful and very silly picture book by @karl_newson with illustrations by #rosscollins - stop by to check it out and be prepared to giggle the whole time you’re reading it!)

This little guy is convinced that he’s a tiger! .

He manages to convince everyone around as well, until a real tiger shows up! But even then, he doesn’t need to be a mouse :)
