Book Review and Giveaway: Where Have all the Animals Gone?

This past week we have been catching up on reading with this cute little book about a farm and its animals. Where have all the animals gone? is written by Darren Paul Ellis from Lancashire. Who is an airline pilot when he’s not writing.

Having grown up on a smallholding with cows, geese, chickens, goats and a pony this book appealed to me. The big kid I am! I have a love of all farm things and would love to pass some of this onto baby girl. I think already she is an outdoorsy girl like her mum!

Personalised Children’s Books by I See Me – Review and Giveaway

Baby girl had lots of books for Christmas which we have finally got through. She loves to pick up a book, open the pages and have a browse through. When I was asked by I See Me to have a look at and share my thoughts on their personalised children’s books, I felt it was a great opportunity to expand her library.

I will get straight in and say how easy the process is online to personalise the book to your specification. You can add all sorts of things like a photo for the first page, name, date of birth and a special message from the options given. All books are of fantastic quality with the photo’s being clear and concise.

My Very Own Fairytale

Baby girl’s speech is coming on fantastically and her first word when she saw her Very Own Fairytale book was ‘amazing’

My Very Own Fairytale is a hardcover, professionally bound book that transports girls into a magical garden where flower and berry fairies crown her as their fairy princess. Flower fairies bring letters one by one to spell out the child’s name, while describing character traits that make the recipient alone the perfect princess.

Blog Tour: Christmas Angels by Nadine Dorries

Today I’m happy to say it’s my turn on the blog tour for Nadine Dorries Christmas Angels. As you know from my previous posts I’m a huge fan of Nadine Dorries and her Lovely Lane series.

You can catch up here with my reviews of The Children of Lovely Lane and The Mother’s of Lovely Lane.

Christmas Angels by Nadine Dorries

Book Description

The nurses of Lovely Lane face Christmas dramas at the busiest time of the St Angelus year.

Christmas may be the season of goodwill, festive cheer and family cheer for some – but not for the poor of 1950s Liverpool. And for St Angelus Hospital in Lovely Lane, it is frantically busy. There are the old, the dying, the children –and the emergencies. The nurses, known locally as the Angels of Lovely Lane, are run off their feet. Dana, Beth, Pammy and Victoria hardly have time to catch their breath, let alone have a Christmas of their own.

Gripping, gritty, moving, and often humorous too, this is vintage Nadine, a story from the heart of a writer who knows exactly what it is like to be a nurse in a big hospital at Christmas.
