Easy World Book Day Costumes – You’ve Got This!

Come on, we all know it’s true. A part of our brain always dreads World Book Day, and honestly just thinks that there are no Easy World Book Day Costumes. Of course it’s a wonderful scheme, and anything at all which gets kids engaged and involved with books wins my vote. But. Ye gods, it’s not like we parents don’t have enough to do, is it? We may Home Educate now, but trust me, I’ve been there. Oh yes....

What The School Librarian Thinks… of Dekko Comics

Collins Publishing and LittleStuff very kindly sent us a set of Dekko Comics for review recently, and I haven’t been able to keep them on the shelves! Our Year 6 teacher seems to have been hoarding his set to use in lesson plans, Year 5 trade them under the desks like contraband, and every one of the library copies vanishes into a corner whenever our lunchtime KS2 book club is running. The feedback from the children has been...

Katinka’s Tail Review – It’s A New Judith Kerr Book, People!

Judith Kerr OBE . Oh how I love her. Come on, we ALL do – show me a parent, and I’ll show you a battered copy of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. Her oddly age-irrelevant and rather wonderful ‘When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit‘ is one of my top ten comfort reads. I grew up with wonderful Mog, and enjoyed them all again the second time round with my children when they were small. But I couldn’t get quite as excited...
