I was dealing with a very teary little boy yesterday morning, and it took me about an hour to even get him dressed! So I took some time to snuggle up in bed with all three kids and read some more of George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl.
All three are totally transfixed by it, and my daughters kept laughing at his descriptions of the mean old grandma in the book. My eldest was even keen to have it read to her instead of telly time.
I'd read somewhere that he makes a master story teller out of all of us, and I certainly feel that's true.
You can't help but do funny voices and get caught up in the moment, my voice was hoarse afterwards!
Such a fun book to read aloud! One of the thing I was so excited about when we decided to start a family was that I was going to have children to read to and make fall in love with books like I have.
What's your favourite book to read out loud to children?
