A couple of years ago, we went for a New Years Day walk with some family and stopped off at a little café nearby. It had a lovely area for the children with lots of books for them to read, and it was here that I came across this total gem! I was straight on […]
It’s been a while since I did a book review, and I have a GREAT one for you today! I’ve said before that we often visit the library together, and this is a library book which we just keep renewing because it’s such a great read! We do just need to buy it.
I’m back with another ‘Brilliant Books’! This time I’m featuring a recent loan from our local library which has really appealed to T’s sense of humour. There’s a Dinosaur in my Bathtub is a whimsical tale about a girl named Amelia and the dinosaur who has come to stay for the summer. The book begins […]

We are certified book-lovers in our house! All of us enjoy reading and T and I are regular visitors at our local library. I’m lucky that she enjoys listening to stories because I enjoy reading them, especially doing all of the voices! I thought I’d start to write some reviews of some our favourites.
