I Like It When… by Mary Murphy


I found this book by chance when the library in Oxford was selling “damaged” books at 3 for £1. 

It’s a lovely bedtime story which has one line on each page beginning with “I like it when…”. I love how it is gender neutral (could be for a girl or boy) and its simple, no-fuss illustrations. Each page shows the Penguins enjoying themselves – holding hands, trying new food, playing, reading, splashing about and so on. These activities are what young children can relate to and are familiar with. 

It’s simple text makes this a great introductory book to young readers.
