If you have young children you are probably very familiar with the author of our new favourite bedtime story! With such firm family favourites as the Gruffalo and Room on the Broom it’s unsurprising that we met the arrival of Julia Donaldson’s new book with great excitement and we were not disappointed!
Wake Up Do, Lydia Lou! Follows a familiar repetitive rhyming pattern adding in sounds to add to the rhyme as the story goes on. The book follows a ghost attempting to wake up sleeping Lydia Lou in an attempt to frighten her, but his attempts fail and the book ends with lots of laughter.
E is two and a half and has already had me read him this book multiple times since it arrived, he loves the pictures and tries to join in making the different sounds as we read it. It’s a great book for reading during the day or at bedtime and is definitely one of our current favourites!
