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. Sigh… how could the very people who should be giving a child positive emotional support speak such negative words? Well done Hamilton for believing in yourself and for endlessly striving for excellence.
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!
Finally, a post on a helpful parenting book.:)
This book makes it to my top five list… practical with good advice dished out in clear, simple terms. A group of my mummy friends are reading this book together and we are all finding it very helpful!
This is a sweet and endearing book about a very special white polka dot elephant with a big heart. It was little Ms Sunshine’s favourite book over the September holidays. ☺ Everyday she asked for this book to be repeated… ‘Mummy, can you read me Elliot book?’ ☺
An adorable book which is a must get especially for animal lovers! It’s based on our very own Kai Kai and Jia Jia at the River Safari. Who can resist cute, cuddly pandas with their big black eyes?
Both 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 🙂
