Continuing with my new series. Up for grabs today is The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler. I can’t remember exactly when we got this for K, but he loves it. When I was pregnant with C, he wanted to read this all the time. He wanted to read it so much that I memorised it, which came in handy. Since I felt horrible for most of the pregnancy, I could recite the story whilst K turned the pages. This also proved helpful if I was cooking or doing something that didn’t allow for me to sit down with him. It’s a cute story. The sequel, The Gruffalo’s Child, is also nice, but I don’t think it’s as good as the original.
