Is there anything better than watching kids reenact picture books?

I didn’t think so.

A new book in the house means it MUST be read at least 5 times a day for the first few days. And this makes sense, how else are they going to memorise it and reenact it?

This week’s book of choice is Oliver Jeffers’ Once Upon An Alphabet. It has a little story for every letter of the alphabet so they haven’t learned them all yet. But we’ve only had the book for three days.

The best thing about this book, and many of Jeffers’ books, is how the characters are repeated throughout, some visiting from his other books. Our new favourite duo is the Owl and the Octopus. This duo has been racing around the house solving all sorts of problems: finding cucumbers, fixing cups, etc.
