5 A Day Books - Transport

5 a day books

This week we are learning about transport. Read the full post here.

I must say, R has really taken to this idea of reading 5 books a day for a week really well. His vocabulary has spiked since we started doing this. He can speak in full sentences now and there are not many words that we cannot understand him saying. R also asks for books to be read to him throughout the day and has taken to sitting down with books again. He used to sit down to look at books on his own a lot when he was younger, but an obsession with cars, trucks and trains took over! :)

R loves all the books we chose this week. I have read all of them countless numbers of times! The books that we chose for this week are:

1. Snappy Sounds Vroom! (no author). R simply loves this book. It has different modes of transport on each page, and as you open it, it makes the noises, such as a tractor chugging along. It also has a section down the side of each page with pictures of different modes of transport. R has to find each one in the picture.
2. Thomas's Big Railway Pop Up Book (no author). This is a interactive book with 3-D pictures and a few moving parts, as well as all the Thomas characters!
3. Tractors (no author). I got this board book for R when he was about 6 months old, and he still loves it to this day. It has sections on each page with a "touch and feel" area, as well as real pictures of different types of tractors.
4. The Wheels On The Bus (no author). This book combines the traditional words of the song with interactive elements, such as wheels to spin, pop-up sections and pull tabs that make the picture change.
5. Who Sank The Boat by Pamela Allen.

Linking up to The Imagination Tree.
