Our Favourite Picture Books - A selection of 17 picture books as chosen by our 4 & 6 year olds.

Our Favourite Picture Books

The girls and I picked out some of our favourite picture books and recorded a video chatting about them, and I thought I would share them in a blog post as well for you all! Some of these books were sent to us very kindly by the publishers (thank you!) to check out, and some are ones we’ve been given by family or bought ourselves.… Continue Reading “Our Favourite Picture Books”

I Am Bear

I Am Bear… and I am Bare!

Today I am taking part in a very special “Bear Book Blog Tour” (try saying that 5 times fast!) to celebrate the wickedly hilarious new picture book from Walker Books; I Am Bear.

The book is written by none other than Ben Bailey Smith – otherwise known as the actor, comedian & musician Doc Brown. Now this very funny man seems to be adding another feather to his cap; children’s author.

I am a book addict… I’m one of those people whose Kindle accompanies them everywhere, and I never go… Continue Reading “Quick Reads with Galaxy Chocolate”

Instead of talking about every book I’ve read lately, here are some of my recent favourites instead. With the increasing popularity of ebook readers, there seem to be more… Continue Reading “Recommended reads this Christmas”

Recent Reads: My Christmas reading!

I tried to “unplug” from the internet a bit over Christmas. I spent a week or so just playing with my children, enjoying the holiday with my family, and cherishing the time spent with my husband before he went back to Birmingham to stay with his Mum & go earn the pennies to pay for the house we are buying! Most of the blogging I… Continue Reading “Recent Reads: My Christmas reading!”
