"Around the World We Go!" by Margaret Wise Brown, Illustrated by Christine Toppin #Review

I love how Tom & Seb respond to new books.
They know that new books are kept for bedtime.
That as soon as their pyjamas are on, their milk has been drank, storytime can begin.

The first thing that drew the boys in were the illustrations by Christine Toppin. Exploring the world in vivid colours, with detail which kept the boys engaged with each page.
The repetition in the words by Margaret Wise Brown meant the boys were riveted by changes in rhythm and joining in as they guessed the direction of the text.
They loved the references to other countries and languages.
Although the spaceship may have captured their imagination most!
This book offers a great opportunity to explore with little ones, understanding the 'big, wide world' is never going to be easy with ones so enraptured with their immediate surroundings, but with children so obsessed with aeroplanes and spaceships it was a great routeway to exploring book.

A great sign of a good book is how often it is requested at bedtime. 
And as it seems this book is a favourite in the morning or at bedtime, means it's definitely getting the thumbs up from my three year olds!
