Snug as a Bug by Tamsyn Murray and Judi Abbott (Simon and Schuster Children's Books)

What a neat little counting and rhyming book and it's never too late to cuddle up with a book that's as snuggly as its title. 'Snug as a Bug' by Tamsyn Murray and Judi Abbott tells the tale of George - and it's a tale that really strikes a chord at the moment.

Along with The Strolling Mum we try to escape the house as much as possible to avoid cabin fever. George's mum tries the same one rainy morning, suggesting a trip to the park but George takes one look at the rain and isn't keen.

Luckily Mum knows exactly what's required. Wrapping up warm, as snug as a bug! Or as cosy as bats in thick woollen hats!

As the story unfolds, we get to meet some great little animal characters all doing their best to dress up warm and cosy. Every child will quickly find a favourite, and Judi Abbott's brilliant illustrations made us chuckle with some really inventive combinations!

Out on January 31st in paperback, Snug as a Bug makes us want to wriggle under the duvet, shutting out the wet and windy weather with our favourite books and cuddly toys.

Charlotte's best bit: Without a doubt, those fantastic pigs in their purple wigs.

Daddy's favourite bit: Nine little bees on tiny little skis!
