Belle’s Bedtime Reads – Goat Goes to Playgroup by Julia Donaldson.
Pah I must make a statement now that I’m not Julia Donaldson constantly plugging my books, but I have a four year old with a bit of a book obsession and Julia Donaldson does write great kids books. Also confession time, it wasn’t until I came to write this post that I actually realised this was a Julia Donaldson book.
So like many a child we had a pretty rough ride when it came to Isabelle starting pre-school. Unlike our son she takes a long time to get used to going to new places and meeting new people. Preschool was a bit of a nightmare time, and YES we were the parents who had their child peeled off them at the start of each session and I admit that I shed a few tears as I walked away knowing that she was sobbing her heart out.
This went on for a little while, but each playgroup session she got a bit braver and looked forward to going, it was only at the point when we had to leave that things got tricky.
Goat Goes to Playgroup was a book that we’ve read many a time, and even now as a confident nearly five year old Isabelle really enjoys the book.
So Goat Goes to Playgroup is about a Goat that starts playgroup, describing his day with a few mishaps along the way.
It’s a short colourful book with lots of inspiration for asking questions about your little one’s day at Preschool.
Age Range: 2 -3 years (definitely one to read on the run-up to starting playgroup/preschool)
