Hands up if you read this book as a child! My husband and I came across it at a jumble sale and we both had fond memories of enjoying it as kids, so we picked it up for T. A few months later we discovered another copy at my parents house! We really love this book […]
For Christmas, we bought T Pin-A-Shape, made by Bigjigs toys. This is something I used regularly as a Reception class teacher and it has been on my mental ‘to buy’ list for T for a long time. I just needed to wait until she was old enough to be able to play safely with the […]
