These days, when we are heading out and about with the 'hips', it is highly unlikely that we can leave the house without left Hip clutching a few dinosaurs or a sharks, or something. Well, right now, its the Gruffalo that we cannot leave home without. Our household right now is obsessed with the Gruffalo complete with 'his terrible tusks, and terrible claws and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws'.
Books are worth their weight in gold when travelling and out and about with the 'hips'. Don't forget to pop some in your bag for those times when they need a bit of quiet time. Even if the 'hips' get a little travel sick, audio books are just brilliant, as are a good DVD on the portable DVD player if needs must!
The Gruffalo is one of the fabulous books written by Julia Donaldson and is currently a huge hit with my little hips. It has also been made into a short film which is just brilliant. Check out the short clip below...
Julia Donaldson also has a huge collection of other books that are definitely worth checking out; The Gruffalo's child, Tiddler, The snail and the Whale, Stick Man., Tabby McTat, Charlie Cooks favourite book, Room on the broom, Monkey Puzzle, to name but a few.
