Ages: 5 and up

Our words have power. We have to use them wisely. Lewis Hamilton’s teacher and headmaster had told him “You won’t amount to anything.” My heart sunk when I heard that on TV a few days ago.

Here’s another quick recommendation on a story we really enjoyed during our recent holiday. Pete’s a Pizza is more than a book. My two kids kept themselves entertained by reading and laughing at the story while I was busy with a few house chores. I’ve actually not seen them enjoy a book this much before!

Baby Storytime : Our Favourite Fifteen

readbabyreadBoth Sprinter and Sunshine enjoyed these books from crawlers through toddlerhood. We still read them today! Board books, cloth books, sound books, touch-feely books and sing-along books are best for the very young as they explore books with all their senses from textures to rhythmic awareness. We had a hard time choosing our top 15 but here they are. No surprise, all are familiar all-time favourites 🙂
