It's sunny today!! We took our red reading chair outside with our latest library haul. Izzy adores, If I Had a Gryphon, by Vikki VanSickle. Illustrated by Cale Atkinson.  Sam doesn’t want a hamster for a pet. That’s far too boring. Sam wants something mythical, unique, terrific, hair-raising. Something like a unicorn… “We’d prance through fields of posies, and nibble nectarines. I’d shine her horn with candy corn to get a starry sheen.” Everything seems rosy, until we’re hit with that…

I’ve mentioned in previous posts, that I adore and appreciate children’s books that give life to those emotions that can be difficult to deal with/recognise/talk about, or those that awaken our fears, books such as Mr Huff or The Dark. This is one of those #mustread books. .  Cry, Heart, but Never Break, by Glenn Ringtved and Charlotte Pardi, looks at Death. Capital D, because you can see from the book's cover in our pic that Death is personified, and has come to visit a household. Four…

It’s #followfriday, and I’m giving a shout out to @spiky_penelope .  At the moment we have 7 books in our possession recommended by her, including this new favourite by Keith Negley, My Dad Used to be Cool. This book is cool and sweet, just like my friend @spiky_penelope. She writes sterling reviews, hosts fun book exchanges, and her taste in books is divine. .  Also love this book because it encouraged a trip to the music store this morning for this pic. My boy wants to play the violin…

Kids love a good giggle. Books that have them laughing throughout are the ones they keep going back to. When that last page is turned, you’re bound to hear, “Again!! Again!!” Mo Willems’ books are ticklers. Laugh-out-louders. .  @parentandchildmag asked Willems, "What do you look for when selecting books for your own child?" This was part of his answer, “I look for books that will engage her sense of play, so that more than saying, "Read it again!" she will begin to weave her own stories…
