My Mum And Dad Make Me Laugh
Mum is crazy about spots - spotty clothes, spotty wallpaper, spotty games like dominoes; Dad loves stripes - stripy suits and stripy ties, stripy humbug sweets. No wonder they make their son laugh - mind you, they think that he's funny in his grey patternless clothes!

Very good book to use for patterns as it mainly focuses on spots and stripes. Good book to use to help early years children identify the things around them that have spots and stripes. Can be used for Maths in early years as it looks at concept of repeated patterns,symmetry, shapes (lines and circles), concept of counting.

Another fantastic Nick Sharratt story about a spotty, stripy family who have very strong preferences but manage to get along as a family by appreciating their differences. Detailed illustrations that exude fun and provide lots of opportunities to find examples of spots and stripes. Could be linked to mathematical concepts of patterning.
