19th June Are You Sitting Comfortably?

"Hello there! Are you sitting comfortably? Are you sure? Have you found the perfect snuggle-up-and-lose-yourself-in-a-book place? Somewhere comfy, NOT itchy-fuzzy? Somewhere quiet, NOT buzz-buzzy? You have? Great! Unfortunately the little chap in this book isn't having quite as much luck as you are ...Join one small book lover's search for the perfect place to sit (just for a bit!) in this beautifully illustrated and designed picture book by the talented Leigh Hodgkinson."

This is the blurb for this new book that we added to our library collection last week. We loved its quirkiness and illustrations and decided to make it the centrepiece for a display, first of all for books that feature chairs, but then better still to start a discussion with the children about where they most like to read. They drew themselves reading in their favourite places. We also read There's a Bear on My Chair, a really good read that is on the shortlist for the Kate Greenaway Medal.

See all the books in the library that made their way to the display:

  1. This is a terrific idea for a mini theme. I had no idea there were so many books about chairs. I do love Down the back of the chair and Annie's chair especially.
