Osian's Valentine's Books

Valentine's doesn't mean anything to Osian, but I think it's nice to use it as an excuse to do some themed activities, or in this case buy some themed things. I bought him plenty of winter and Christmas books so thought it would be nice to have some for Valentine's. Admittedly I went a little overboard with the Christmas books so decided to keep it to just a few for Valentine's. Four of the books are new and one was either mine or my sister's from when we were younger.

Where is Baby's Valentine? - This seems to be Osian's favourite book at the moment. We've been reading it together the past few nights before bed, when we've finished I put it down, then Osian will go pick it back up again and hand it over to me, we seem to be having to read it at least three times before bed. It's a lift the flap book and now Osian's older he takes more care when opening the flaps, I think the fact he's becoming quite calm before bed also helps.

Peter Rabbit I Love You - A lovely little book, it's quite a short story that we read during the day. Osian seems to prefer shorter stories during the day and longer ones before bed.

I love my Mummy - This is a lovely book,  I particularly like this one (no need to guess why!). There's also one for Daddys. The books shows the relationship between mummy and child, and illustrates some of the things mums do, the last page in really sweet.

Guess How Much I Love You - I've seen this book around so many times but had never bought it until recently. I'm glad I finally decided to buy it, it's such a lovely book. This is another one for before bedtime. It's a story about the little hare and the big hare having a competition to guess how much they love the other.

You're All My Favourites - This is the book at was either mine or my sister's, and it's another bedtime book. It's a lovely story about three bears and they all think their parents like the other ones better, and the parents go onto explain that they like them all the same.
