A world record attempt to celebrate 25 years of ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen!

I can’t actually believe that ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ – the classic rhyming tale of a family’s adventure to find a bear – is 25 years old.  Although it’s still not quite old enough to have been a book from my own childhood *cough cough* 😉 it still feels as though it’s been a […]

Our reading list – June 2014

A day early again, but we’re gearing up for a rather busy month as the newest member of Team Kirby is due to arrive very soon.  I can’t imagine that the early days are going to provide much opportunity to get back into blogging, but at least it will mean there’s a new person choosing […]

Our reading list – May 2014

So here’s May’s reading list, hot on the heels of our April one…  A couple of day’s premature, but we have a busy weekend planned and at least this way I won’t let it go a month overdue *looks down at April’s post, shuffles feet and coughs…* We’re now starting to share a few longer […]

Here is our #300PBs […]

Beautiful Book Island books

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 […]

A resounding “YES!” for ‘The Yes’

‘The Yes‘ by Sarah Bee, illustrated by Satoshi Kitamura (published by Andersen Press) This book has been one of the most intriguing to come into our house in a long while. We’re already fans of ‘Millie’s Marvellous Hat‘ by Satoshi Kitamura, which has inspired H, in particular, in playing many imaginative games involving dressing up. […]
