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.
Now baby girl is finding books very interesting, I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open for new books for us to look at together. When I was asked if I wanted to join the blog tour for There’s Not One we were so excited.
I’m very pleased to be on the Zak and Jen’s Astronomical Adventures – Tinsel Town book tour. Tinsel Town is written by Natalie Page and illustrated by Chris Rivers Nuttall. It’s a fantastic children’s book in the Zak and Jen Astronomical Adventures series. Which started with The Petal Planet.
As you know we are huge book lovers. I’m sharing that love for books with baby girl. She might not yet understand what they are about but at 9 months old she love’s to turn the pages when we read together.
Best friends Zak and Jen love exploring space using their magic umbrellas. This time, they find a Christmas themed planet, but there is one thing missing, the inhabitants! Join the characters as they make some festive friends, and realise how important it is to appreciate every day. Tinsel Town is written for children over five years old, however younger children will also enjoy the rhythm of the story and its festive theme.
Here is part 2 of our Christmas Gift Guide for 2016. This guide features gifts for kids. From stocking presents to teething toys and books. Happy Shopping!
A couple of months back we reviewed the full size Gotrovo treasure hunt game. It was fantastic and great for parties. If you are looking for a stocking filler, the Gotrovo mini is great. It comes in a fab little case and so great for carrying around. It’s perfect for holidays and visiting friends.

A couple of months back the lovely people over at Wilf Books were just starting up their children’s books sharing box scheme and asked if they could guest post on my blog. I think it’s a great thing that they are doing so I accepted. You can read that post over here: How can we help our children learn about sharing?
So Wilf Books is run by Callum and Amelia who believe in the value of sharing. Their aim is to recycle and redistribute children’s books to those that will love them the most.
Now the subscription box business is up and running, they have kindly let me review a box with baby girl. What I loved about opening the box was the carefully hand painted postcard made out to baby girl. It really gave it a personal touch and I honestly now believe that Callum and Amelia are putting their heart and soul into this. To make it a success. I wish them tons of luck.
The books were carefully packed in tissue paper and hand tied with string.
When I was about 10 years old I used to be into all the Nancy Drew mystery books and basically any adventure books I could get my hands on. I used to love going with my mum browsing around charity shops at all the books. We used to get some great books. Then Dad used to take us after school to our local library as well so I could top up my books every couple of weeks. Here I would save up my pocket money to buy the ex-library books. I would spend all day browsing in the library if I could!
Anyway onto the actual aim of this post. I have been given the chance to read and review a fab little mystery kids book called Mystery at the Ice Hotel it’s one of the Chasing Danger mystery books by Sara Grant. Totally my type of children’s book. I’m so excited to be on this book tour!
