As it’s world book day tomorrow, I thought I’d put a little post together and show you all our World Book Day potatoes! I love the idea of world book day. As an English teacher, I think anything that encourages a love of reading in children is wonderful and will only benefit them long term.

Tips for Choosing a Baby Walker for Your Baby
