Little Learners Parragon Books

The twins really enjoy having books read to them these days and the Little Learners range from Parragon Books are clear favourites. The things that makes the Little Learners range so great in my opinion include their imaginative designs which incorporate puppets and accompanying toys along with stimulating textures and softly appealing pictures to grow your child’s curiosity and imagination, engaging them and capturing their attention from the early days. These books really will encourage a love of reading and books amongst your baby or toddler from a very early age.

I have seen this first hand with the twins who are lucky enough to have quite a few Little Learners books to choose from. Now a year old, they often go and fetch books themselves and bring them to me to read which is a delight to see. Here are a selection of the ones we read most often.

Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey Diddle Diddle is an adorable nursery rhyme board book features a fun cat character finger puppet toy built into the story, encouraging interactive play, hand-eye coordination and language development for babies aged 6+ months. The perfect size for little hands, it is ideal for reading and playtime on-the-go.

Zoey, a massive fan of cats, adores this book and her big brother Ben is a very willing puppeteer making the little kitty come to life. This is a great book to bring on car journeys and it has certainly come to the rescue for me on numerous occasions when I needed to distract the babies. 

Bunny Loves to Play

Like Hey Diddle Diddle, Bunny Loves to Play is another storyboard book which features a finger puppet built in. This time it's a little Bunny called Buster who you get to act out.

The twins adore this little bunny's story and it always gets lots of giggles. I love the fact you can bring stories to life from such a young age with the aid of these little puppets.

Spots and Dots 

The littlest learners will love to play with these chunky pages whilst they find spots, stripes and more! Innovative, shaped pages and an easy-to-grab handle make this the perfect book to share, whilst encouraging development of movement and Reflexes. Cute and colourful illustrations teach simple patterns found in nature.

Spots and Dots is one of Zoey's favourite books and I often find her sitting turning the pages of it, pointing to the dots and tracing the swirly shapes just as I do when I read it to her.

Jiggly Giraffe

Jiggly Giraffe is a beautifully illustrated rhyme book and soft plush giraffe rattle. The perfect box set for stimulating your little one's senses. Read along as they shake the rattle. This set would make a perfect gift. 

Zachary loves Jiggly Giraffe, he has grown quite attached to the rattle since we got the book a few months ago now. I like how he clearly associates the book with the toy and if I get the book out to read he always goes and fetches Jiggly and then waves it at me to let me know he's ready. Likewise if he wants the book read he will signal to me in a similar way.
