Where is Binky Boo : Zoe and Beans by Chloe and Mick Inkpen.
We were sent this book by the publishers (Macmillen), and I just had to share it with you. Miss A has taken a while to get into having a bedtime story read to her. Not sure why, as her sister has always enjoyed the experience. Thankfully that has changed now, and she eagarly chooses a book each night for either Tall Dad or myself to read.
She has read another in the series ‘The Magic Hoop’ so was familiar with the characters already. These stories have become firm favourites. I think because Miss A loves dogs, and really, really wants a pet, is just one of the reason she finds the stories so engaging. The characters are very likeable and the story, is never over complicated. I love that it gives me the opportunity to keep her engaged with making silly noises like barking and shouting things like FETCH very loudly to much hilarity!
The illustrations are beautiful, so expressive. Zoe even reminds me a little of Miss A. Each page has lots colour and movement, something I love in picture books. I also think this helps with keep Miss A listening to the story and waiting for the next part.
We love the Zoe and Beans series and I hope if you get chance to read them, you do too.
Thank you for reading
