    Yes I am, but silly me, it hadn't even occurred to me to go check out the children's books there!
    Thanks for reminding me

    Our all time favourites are
    The Magic Hat by Mem Fox
    The Ravenous Beast by Niamh Sharkey

    They are both great books that you can read over and over again and you an really involve the kids.

    Your library may have a 'rhyme time' or similiar too. These are usually free activities with stories, and singing.

    in SA they have the 'little big book club' with suggestions of books for each age group.

    We love: the wonky donkey
    The cranky and itchy bear, there is a new one too
    The very hungry caterpillar is a classic
    dear zoo
    Spot
    Mem fox - Where is the green sheep, time for bed

    Some of these may be a bit 'old' but they are classic stories and you will have them for years. We have had some 'Spot' books since DS was born and he loves them still at 4.

    Have started a list of all these suggestions and will definitely be checking out our library to see if we find them there!

    So glad I posted here, such a wealth of knowledge!
