WIN 1 of 5 signed copies of Dragons Green – PLUS an advanced copy of The Chosen Ones!

Have you come across the rather wonderful Dragon’s Green yet? I’ll admit it – I put off reading it for ages (to be honest, I simply had ‘better’ things in my to-read pile than another children’s fantasy). Silly silly me. I read it last week in two long sittings – and I flipping LOVE this book! Firstly, never underestimate the appeal of a book with a glow-in-the-dark cover (I know!) – we...

Lunch with my girl #littleoneswholunch

One of the best things about Home Educating is that the whole ‘Back To School’ furore rather passes us by. Our summer takes much longer to fade and we’re really only just starting to get into the swing of an Autumnal house.

Zappar – the app I wanted to hate, but actually love.

My kids are all keen readers – and the idea of an app that makes reading ‘more fun’ was frankly wrong on every level for me. I honestly said no, we wouldn’t even look at it. I mean, come on. What in the world is more fun than reading? But of course not every child is as lucky as mine. Not every child finds reading fun and easy and exciting. Books aren’t always the window into a new world; sometimes...

Spotted! Gorgeous Wooden Wonder Wagon Walker from Hape

We love a decent wooden toy – and I’ve fallen straight in love with this fabulous little walker from Hape. Not only because it’s so darn pretty and has a retro loveliness to the design with that cherry red edge. But also because it does this – That, right there my friends, is YEARS of play value. LONG after they’ve outgrown the walker they’ll ADORE having a trailer to pull things around in. To be...
