Today It’s my turn for the blog Tour of Grandma Z by Daniel Gray-Barnett. A wonderful debut children’s book that will appeal to everyone.
On an ordinary day, in an even more ordinary town, it was Albert’s birthday.
When Grandma Z roars into town on her motorcycle, Albert is swept up in a very extraordinary adventure. Life may never be the same again!
This glorious debut from Daniel Gray-Barnett is filled with wonder, imagination, and a wild, magical spirit that will thrill young and old.
Today it’s my turn to be on the blog tour for The Distance Between Us by Georgie Capron. Before you read my review here is a little about this fantastic read.
Tasha knows that she should count her blessings: married for eleven years, mother to three healthy children, she should be content with her lot. However, feelings of frustration have settled over her like a dark cloud. Despite living under the same roof and sharing the same bed, Tasha has never felt so distant from her husband, Charlie. She feels worn down by the mental load of motherhood, drowning in the never-ending chores that keep the family and household afloat. Most of all she worries that her once happy marriage is slipping away from her.
Tasha longs for something to change, but when change comes calling will it really be the answer she was hoping for? And is it possible to fall in love with the same person twice?
Check out our book this week for #BookReviewMondays
Our latest book we have been reading is called Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House by Christine Johnson. Now I’m reading to two of them. Baby dottie is more alert now as she’s growing at nearly 9 weeks old, and baby girl is taking lots of interest in books now. I often see her sitting down with a book, chatting away to herself and pointing at the pictures.
Before you get to our review, here is a little bit about Max, Mouse and the Doll’s House….
Today it’s my turn to be on the Days of Wonder blog tour by Keith Stuart. You may remember one of my favourite books from last year was A Boy Made Of Blocks by the same author. Well Keith Stuart is back this year with another gem – Days of Wonder.
Everyday we go through the numbers with baby girl. She can now count up to 10 no problem at 2 years and 3 months, but the alphabet no so much. So this is our next project to learn all about letters and phonics. I’m always on the lookout for different books to entertain baby girl and we came across this Animal Alphabet Fun Book by Susan Thomas. From the publishers at Austin Macauley.
Animal Alphabet Fun Book is a fun and interactive learning experience for your child. Each letter has a 4 line rhyme with full colour pictures. Give your child the best head start in learning their ABC’s.
Baby girl is now 26 months old. She is very switched on and has shown that she is nearly ready for toilet training. A few weeks back we reviewed the Step’n’ Potty from Bumbo, but she wasn’t quite ready for potty training then. When we saw the health visitor for her 2 year check up, she gave us some advice on potty training, but said to leave it for a couple of months due the change in her life of having a little sister next week. She said that with having a newborn in the house would be a big adjustment without having potty training as well in her life. So we will be back on the potty training in the Summer. Taking small steps as we go along.
For now though we have been reading this great little book called Little Budgie’s Done A Fudgie by Simon Harris. It’s all about a little bird taking his first steps out of a nappy onto the potty.
