Have you read "You Choose" by Nick Sharratt and Pippa Goodhart to your children? Well when I say read, it is more like played.
On each page you choose something to create a story. A friend, a place, a house, an outfit, a mode of transport, a pet, a bed, furniture.
We now have two copies thanks to Bookstart
which I shall be eternally grateful for (possibly). The children love this book and we get to play it almost every night. But the novelty has started to wear off for The Mr who refuses to read/play it anymore due to all permutations of the story being exhausted (in his opinion). Although technically that would require reading it every night for the rest of his life and possibly the lives of any grandchildren that may be produced in much future years.
However, I quite like it in smaller doses and decided I would give you all a little treat and reveal my choices from this evenings reading/playing. I know, exciting stuff huh? Hold onto your seats, this could be fun okay.
|Right now? Up a mountain. Listen! Yep, silence.|
|Bless her. My Aunt Betty Blacktooth. |
|Ptolemy and Persephone. They have anxieties.|
|Wherever I lay my hat... or council tax avoidance.|
|The essentials for a party: disco ball, toilet and lava lamp...|
|and cocktail bar! Gin sling anyone?|
|Party bus. More accomodating than campervans!|
|If drunk, chocolate, yogurt and kebabs. If sober, other.|
|Kimonos are so this season. And big pants.|
|Should road travel bore me, I shall fly on my pet dragon.|
|Flexible working, and you get to spy through windows.|
|As if you need to ask!|
|Not sure how I'm going to fit that in a bus/campervan mind.|

big favourite at our house - although I admit to feeling slightly offended when my daughter chose the caveman to represent mummy!ReplyDelete
Yes we also have 2 which is lucky due to the 2 children thingy. And we also have a Dad who hates it, such is the saturation level he is at now. He now makes the children make up a story around the things they choose to alleviate the boredom a little - they choose it less now for some reason!ReplyDelete
I've never seen that book before, but it looks like great fun. I must look out for it.ReplyDelete
How lovely to see a mum enjoying playing with the book too! Nick (Sharratt) sent me the link, so we've both enjoyed your enjoyment.ReplyDelete
