    Hello, my LO has always loved books and we have quite a lot but mainly touch books like thats not my car and singing books. Or books that have only a few words. but he is now really enjoying sitting and listening to to a book last thing at night.
    I want to get him some more books that are longer but not overly long any one got any suggestions? what do your LOs like? he is 20 months :)

    for slightly longer books, look up Emma Dodd and Giles Andreae :) Emma Dodd has a series of books about like..well a parent loving their child really. they're called things like 'sometimes' 'you' 'me' 'everything'...there are 6 of them in the series at the moment and DD loves them still even though she's onto longer books.
    Giles Andreae also has a series of books...kinda about...peace and love and kindness. there's 1 called 'the thanking you sharks' who learned to say thank you to the fish they ate instead of feeling entitled lol quite sweet stories too and also not too long! a sentence or 2 per page so all the pictures are still changing quickly enough to keep them engaged :)

    Any Julia Donaldson ones but Monkey Puzzle, smartest giant, snail and whale and Tiddler are great. Also Paddington books, hungry caterpillar, stomp, chomp dinosaurs, the Harry and the Dinosaurs range, giraffes can't dance, mucky duck, Thomas the tank engine books, commotion in the ocean, tiger who came to to tea, meg and mog, tiger in the snow.

    Also, library books are great. You can get tons and then see which authors, types of books and lengths go down well.

    We love reading and have so many books. Have fun.
