Happy Book Week, everybody!
Have you seen the Winners and Honours list?
What are your faves?
Running with the theme, (you know I love a good theme) here are my favourite bookish links from around the webs.
A book-loving boy asks his postman for some junk mail to read.
What happens next is all goosebumpy.
The barber giving free haircuts. On one condition.
Zanni’s post on the importance of reading aloud to our kids had me reminiscing about reading with my mum as a little one.
It reminded me to make the time to always celebrate reading with my kidlets.
Kids need humorous books (even if toilet humour is not your thing.)
Just ask Megan.
How diverse are your book choices?
Kids need to see the world reflected in their books.
Here are some fantastic quotes about writing for children.
(My favourite is the one about Dr Seuss and his cuckoo clock.)
We read the above books for Reading Hour.
The picture up the top of this post is from a magnificent, wordless book called “Float” by Daniel Miyares.
What books are on high rotation at your house?
I’m linking up with the lovely ladies at The Annoyed Thyroid, Calm to Conniption,
A Little Part of the World and My2Morrows for their Ultimate Rabbit Hole link-up party.
Continue your meanderings with them!
I love a bookish meander! My girls can now read themselves but we still end the day reading a book together all cuddled up. At the moment we are reading the Alice Miranda series which we are all loving. A few years ago we were given a worldless book called Waves which is just gorgeous and the girls loved making up stories about what was happening.
I must admit I’m not very well-versed on books for older kids- I keep hearing about this Alice Miranda series though! Nothing like a snuggle and a book!
We are reading a book about a goose and a fox. The lesson is to always watch out for strangers, which is a great message for my son. I just question if he understands fully what it means.
Picture books give you a great platform from which to have such important conversations. Enjoy your reading together! Such special times x
Thanks for the share! Glad you enjoyed the article. I loved that article about humorous books too! We love a bit of humour in our nightly reading! x
Nothing like a bit of a giggle before bedtime x
I love the story about the barber and those quotes are cracking. My favourite is still Avocado Baby. Even as an adult, I can’t resist it.
The power of a good picture book!
Oh so many good links to sink my teeth into. I loved that story of the postman and the boy. All the feels! And Zanni has reminded me of the importance of reading to Miss 6, even though she can now read and I’m loving that she can now read to me at bedtime. Happy book week! xx
And Happy Book Week to you, my dear! Your book giveaway is the perfect addition to this week celebrating all the best booky things!!!
I’m a sucker for books – especially ones for kids. Noni the Pony is a favourite character in our house (lovely to see it again in the list with the Beach book). Apart from being gorgeous, my tornadoes love it because they call my mum Nonie (short for Leonie). My mum isn’t quite sure though especially as a line in the first book reads “Nonie the Pony is fat and round…” 🙂
It just means she is super cuddly, no?!
Thanks for the book recommendations. I try to read to my son every night, even though I’m tired and exhausted. It’s a lot of work. believe me.
Such a dedicated mumma! I hope you find some new books to enjoy together xx
