The Gruffalo and The Very Hungry Caterpillar

My little girl read The Gruffalo to me yesterday, all the way through and only needed help with the word "frightfully". How cool is that. A lovely warm feeling in my heart. She then read it to Daddy before bedtime. She is reading it to her teddy bears as I type this. Actually I've just videoed her reading it ... lovely.

Today we went to the local library for a story time and an activity session reading The Very Hungry Caterpillar. After the reading of the book, Imogen made a hungry Caterpillar and a beautiful butterfly ...

... and then all the children went out into the library garden to release balloons with notes on for people to contact the library if they find it. The finder and the child who let the balloon go which is found will win prizes. Imogen had great fun and keeps wondering where her balloon might land.
