This summer, I am hosting a reading challenge together with my lovely friend Amanda who runs the online children’s book store Books & Pieces. For the second year in a row, we are running a #KidsBooksBingo! Check out my previous post if you missed the introduction about the #KidsBooksBingo. You can also download a copy of the bingo grid, and if you are on Twitter or Instagram, you can join in by sharing pictures of what you are reading with the hashtag #KidsBooksBingo.

Each Friday throughout July and August, I’ll be highlighting a different bingo category here on the blog. You’ll get a chance to take a peek inside some of our favourite books, and perhaps discover some new favourites of your own to read over the summer. This week, I’m sharing some of our favourite books set on a farm, including three fun picture books plus a chapter book perfect for older kids to read themselves, or for reading out to younger kids.
If you want to look up any of the books from the video, here are the details:
- Cock-a-doodle-poo, by Steve Smallman & Florence Weiser
- Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans, by Jessie Miller & Barbara Bakos
- Chicken Clicking, by Jeanne Willis & Tony Ross
- Emil and the Great Escape/ Emil and the Sneaky Rat/ Emil’s Clever Pig, by Astrid Lindgren
