… Day 6 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.
I have to admit, I had no idea for a book title starting with ‘F’. Luckily the library had Five Minutes Peace by Jill Murphy on it’s shelves … problem solved.
Mothers everywhere will appreciate the efforts of poor Mrs Large in her attempts to get a break from her family. Her relaxing bath is interrupted, first by her son playing the recorder, then her daughter reading a book, and finally all three children decide to join her in the bath. You’ve got to feel sorry for her.
The illustrations in this book are gorgeous with so much detail for your little one to look at and talk about.
I found a video of the story, if you’d like to check it out before you buy.
