As a kid I was obsessed with The Wizard of Oz. Saturday afternoons we used to love to watch The Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. It was one of those family favourites that you can watch over and over again.
So when I was presented with the opportunity to read and review The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum it was a given! No way was I going to refuse this one!
Here is a little bit about the book:
“He is more powerful than all the rest of us together. He lives in the City of Emeralds.”
Blown far way from her home to the magical land of Oz, little Dorothy must follow the yellow-brick road to the Emerald City and ask the Great and Powerful Wizard of Oz for help. With the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion by her side, Dorothy must first defeat the Wicked Witch of the West – but will the Wizard’s magic be enough to get her home?
You know how much I love to read and write, so when I was asked if I wanted to have a look at a new type of journal I squealed in delight! Yes!!
I’m in love with my new journal! – just wanted to get that out there!
The Morning Sidekick Journal is amazing. Full of ideas and tips to help you get the most out of life.
It’s beautiful to hold. Hardback with fantastic thick pages, the feel of a quality product. It has one of those great bookmarks, so you won’t lose your place and an elastic band to keep it closed. There is the option of having a pdf version as well, so you can fill in on your laptop, if that’s the better option for you.
You know me and how much I love books, right?
Well when I was offered to review a kids book with a little difference and a story to be told, I couldn’t say no. TJ and his Wheelable Chair by Amanda Kehoe is a wonderful picture book explaining to children that disabilities are not a barrier to living a happy life.
The story is written by Amanda Kehoe, who gave up work to care for her son Tadhg on a full-time basis after he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and global developmental delay at 10 months old.
TJ cannot walk or talk, but he still loves to listen and play with his friends. Join him as he shows that disabilities are no barrier to a happy and fulfilling life…
Here is another book review for you. I’m so glad I have made a few spare hours a week to have the time to get back into my reading. This past week I have been engrossed in Bourbon Creams and Tattered Dreams by Mary Gibson. Below is my review, blog tour banner (so you can see who else is on the tour!) and giveaway to win your very own copy!
Frank Rossi promised Matty the world. The Cockney Canary would become a world-famous movie star. As his wife, she would be one half of a power couple, feted and adored by all. But the Wall Street crash puts paid to that and as Frank becomes more violent and unstable, Matty knows she must escape and so she flees at dead of night.
Once home in Bermondsey, she goes into hiding and starts desperately looking for work. But only the hated biscuit factory, Peek Frean’s, is hiring. Then, as a secret from her past comes back to hurt her, Matty learns that Frank is on the move, determined to find her and get her back.
Since having baby girl I have found my love of kids books and The Giant and the Three Dwarves did not disappoint. We have quite a big collection of children’s books now, and I know as baby girl gets older she will love her collection as much as I do.
This is the story of three dwarves, Hop, Skip and Jump. Tired and hungry after a long journey, they knock at the door of a large, lonely house.
It belongs to a big hungry giant…..
