First Words Priddy Books … This is a little book with chunky covers that have a nice reassuring feel to them. It has 26 photographs of objects that your child is likely to come into contact with on a day-to-day basis. The chair, the ball, the orange, the apple... It thus reinforces your child's knowledge and understanding of his daily world and helps him to begin to express himself more as he puts names to the objects he sees every day. As he does so, his confidence at communicating increases and once he has conquered his daily world, then the sky is not the limit...! Go to Sleep, Russell the Sheep Rob Scotton Oh, poor Russell the sheep! He tried and tried and tried to fall asleep. He made it dark, he made himself cold, but nothing worked. Then, ahah! he decided to count (yes, you guessed it !) - sheep! You and your little one will love the illustrations in this book, they're hilarious! And so, Russell finally manages to fall asleep after he's counted the 10th sheep (himself!) and is soon snoring! Yes, at the end of the book, you and your little one will literally hear him snoring and your little one will probably be feeling sleepy too! Perfect bedtime book. Sleep tight Russell!!
