“Reading is a Passport to Countless Adventures” – Mary Pope Osborne

31 Aug

Hi folks,

Wow… can you believe the kids go back to school this week? I feel so emotional about Seth starting full time school. He’s super excited & is taking it all in his stride. Me on the hand… I’m an emotional wreck. I’m really going to miss him. But I know he needs not only the education side of things… but also the social aspect too.

We’ve done learning from home over this pandemic/lockdown, so I’m not too worried about the learning side. ย And we have always been avid readers so I know his literacy is progressing.

From the moment Seth & Ted were born I’ve read to them. In fact, while I was pregnant I actually read to them. I watched a documentary about pregnancy & they said that babies can start to recognised texts when read over & over. I love that. My boys both love books & listening to stories. Ted gets so excited when he turns the pages to see new pictures.

The boys were sent the most gorgeous books from Wonderbly.

Ted is 22 month old & was sent: “The ABC of You”. You can add your childs name & change the colour of the front cover. Each page is totally personalised for your little one. I love the illustrations. The quality of the book is absolutely stunning. The cover is hardback & the pages are made from beautiful thick paper. Perfect for little hands to navigate.

I also love that you can customise & personalise the first page with a cute little message. These books are something that will be treasured by your little ones. I received a personalised book for christmas one year when I was a child from my God Parents & I still have it on my bookshelf.

Seth was sent: “You & the Beanstalk”. This is a lovely little re-telling of a classic. Seth was so mesmerised when he realised he was in the story. Seth is 4 yrs old. He literally could not believe he was the main character.

Seth loves seeing his name in his reading corner.

As with Ted’s book, this book can be personalised & you can also personalise the first page.

Seth has such an amazing creative personality & is always looking for adventures. This book fits him perfectly.

If you’re looking for that perfect gift – look no further than these stunning books. Right now, Wonderbly have 20% off when you buy 2 books. Just use code: MULTI20 at checkout. Books can be shipped worldwide & dispatch is within 48hrs.

We have had so much fun reading these beautiful books.

Thank you as always for reading & I hope you’ve enjoyed this review.

Love & Huggles,

Books, Books and More Books

7 Sep

Hi folks โœจ

I think I’m going to have build an extension just for all of Seth’s books. This is his little reading corner feature wall in his nursery/bedroom. He has a bookcase full of books & a pile of them downstairs too.

I first started reading to Seth while I was pregnant. I watched a fantastic documentary on BBCi Player called ‘The Countdown to Life’. On there they were saying that from 20weeks, in the womb, a baby is able to remember things that are said repetitively. So I began reading Winnie the Pooh. Seth isn’t quite 6 month old yet, but he loves books. He loves being read too, he loves looking at the illustrations, he loves looking at the words. He just sits & gives you the biggest gummy grin that melt your heart. 

I want him to be confident with words. I don’t want books to be something to fear. He has some lovely cue cards with pictures of animals with the written word underneath of what they are… He screams for it. Then he’ll lay on his tummy & just look at all the cards. I know he’s only a baby but I always think on some level the words must be being stored in there somewhere. 

I have a friend who is an Usborne Books organiser… you can find her on Facebook for some great offers. You can order direct through her Facebook page for a personal shopping experience ๐Ÿ’™

Thanks so much as ever for reading โœจ

Love & Huggles,
