We all love picture books. It’s how we all got started into the bookish world. Now if you are an art lover also you really are in for a treat with these stunning books from Tate Publishing. I’m pretty sure many of you have heard of the Tate art galleries. I’m lucky to live close by to the Tate down in St Ives.
Before we get onto the books I want to share with you a little about Tate. I don’t know about you but I love to read background stories and extra info. I do have an appreciation for art and when the girls get older I will be sharing this with them.

As you know from all my many book review posts, we love reading in my house. This past week we have been looking at a different kind of picture book called Watch This! by
Happy Monday! Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for Guess My Name with Veggies and Fruits by Liana Strat. A fun little picture book on naming veggies and fruit, helping toddlers and preschoolers with learning their fruit and vegetables.
Read on to see what we thought.
I have a 2 and a half-year old who is obsessed with sticker books. Trouble is not only does she stick the stickers in the books but on the windows, sofa, table, my arm doors and god knows wherever else! I do love finding her new sticker books though. It keeps her calm and quieter for a while so I get 5 minutes peace and quiet. When we got sent the Hey Duggee Sticky Stick Sticker book from Ladybird to look at I knew it would be one of her favourites.
This past week we have been reading Cute a Doodle Doo by Julie Flanighan. In fact most days we have read it twice before bed time. Reading is one of my favourite hobbies and now I’m sure baby girl loves it as well. It makes me smile when she brings her favourite books to me for storytime. She loves to turn the pages and point out what she knows on the pages. For this book it was the animals, the pig, cow and chicken (although it’s actually a cockerel).
Today I’m on the blog tour for The Beedog: An Insect Discovery in Portugal by Addie Broussard and illustrated by Jayeeta Neogi. It’s a brilliant little kids book that takes kids picture books to a different level!
An award-winning picture book that will get little ones excited about science.
While building a unique sandcastle, Cora and Manny spot a rather curious insect.
Soon, the little scientists keep a watchful eye on the insect’s movements, while learning about the natural environment along the way.
A great book for STEM education and homeschool projects or just curious little ones who love science. Book extras include fun, printable activities related to science learning and research.
