A VERY brief round-up post this month, but I didn’t want to get too far into April without posting it :) Here is our Pinterest board for March 2014, which features some gorgeous new books that we’ve discovered and some C and H ‘firm favourites’ that make the list every month! Here is our #300PBs […]

Sometime last year (she says, shamefully, knowing she’s taken farrrrrrrrrrr to long to get this post written) I was sent two utterly gorgeous books by a new-to-me publisher – Book Island.  They are based in New Zealand and focus on publishing children’s books in translation, as well as extending their readers’ enjoyment of their books […]
