Book Review: Woodland Hedgehugs Activity Book

Baby girl has taken a great interest in books lately. I know some of the ones we read and review are a little too old for her, but she loves to turn the pages herself and look at the pictures. Our latest read and review is the Woodland Hedgehugs Activity Book which was kindly sent to us from Maverick arts publishing and Boolino. Every now and again Boolino send us fantastic books to read through and review. Our last review for them was Robin’s Winter Song.

Book Review & Tour: A Boy Made of Blocks by Keith Stuart

I heard about this book a while ago. Long before I was asked if I wanted to pop along and be included on the blog tour. Something always struck me about the title – A Boy Made of Blocks. How does the title fit? I’m very intrigued to find out.

A Boy made of Blocks by Keith Stuart

Book Description

Meet thirtysomething dad, Alex
He loves his wife Jody, but has forgotten how to show it. He loves his son Sam, but doesn’t understand him. Something has to change. And he needs to start with himself.

Meet eight-year-old Sam
Beautiful, surprising, autistic. To him the world is a puzzle he can’t solve on his own.

When Sam starts to play Minecraft, it opens up a place where Alex and Sam begin to rediscover both themselves and each other . . . When life starts to tear one family apart, can they put themselves back together, one piece at a time?

A Boy Made of Blocks is a beautiful, funny and heartwarming story of family and love inspired by the author’s own experiences with his son.

Book Review: Once Upon A Time…Online

It’s great fun being a Parragon Book Buddy. This is our first book from them to review. Once Upon A Time…. Online by David Bedford & Rosie Reeve is a fantastic children’s book for early learners. I would say for 3-5 year olds, but younger children may find it interesting as well. I love to read books to baby girl. She is nearly 11 months old and just looks at the bright colours and helps to turn the pages.

Once Upon A Time… Online arrived neatly wrapped and we was eager to see what the book was like inside.
