Sweet Cherry Publishing: Review – Dr Hedgehog, The Diaries of Robin’s Toys and A Case of Good Manners

Reading is an important activity in our house. Both children (and adults) love reading and I try to foster this love of reading by offering them a wide range of books to choose from. When Sweet Cherry Publishing got in contact to see if I wanted to review any of their books, I was delighted. We were lucky enough to have been sent Dr Hedgehog 3 Book Collection, The Diaries of Robin’s Toys and A Case of Good Manners to {Read More}

We have books in every room of the house so they can always pick one up wherever {Read More}

Parragon Book Buddies – Disney Art Therapy

This month’s Book Buddies scheme has been a little different – we always love receiving new books to read and share but at the end of March we were sent some of the new ‘Disney Frozen’ and ‘Disney Princess’ Art Therapy colouring books to try out. Isabella and I have loved them – they are a little difficult (but still very engaging for smaller children) because of the small areas and patterns to colour in but the Frozen or Princess {Read More}

Fire Station Activity Book and Playset: Book Buddies Review

I really do love reading and so does Isabella but there’s something a little magical about being able to play with the book too for a three year old. The Parragon Fire Station Activity book and Playset we received a few days before Christmas was brilliant. It kept Isabella and her cousin entertained for hours as they coloured the book in together and played fireman.  This is a great activity book and even though the fire engine and fire station {Read More}

Getting Creative with Snapfish

  I’ve always loved writing, whether I’m good at it or not, I find it quite therapeutic and this year I decided to turn my hand to writing a story book for Isabella’s 3rd birthday. I had thought about it for a long time but only got around to doing something about it recently. Snapfish helped out and printed it for me so it looks and feels like a real book. I wanted to write something that was personal and {Read More}

Spot A Lot Vehicles Jigsaw

Paragon Book Buddies Isabella is a keen book worm and loves to read stories at every opportunity (being an English teacher, this is also something I am passionate about) so when I had the chance to become a Parragon Book Buddy, I was thrilled. Being a Book Buddy means that I will be sent a book once a month to review. In Isabella’s eyes, this is great as she will get a whole new set of books as the year {Read More}

Personalised Childrens Books

I place a lot of importance in reading with your little ones and have always encouraged Isabella to read. She has access to books both up and downstairs and will often ask for us to read to her. In fact, we have to limit her to two stories at bedtime otherwise she’d have us reading through the night. While it’s great that Isabella loves books, she will still always favour stories about her which is why she could hardly contain {Read More}

If you’re interested in hearing more on my adventures, you can read it here. When you click on the book you wish to review, you get the chance to personalise the character {Read More}
