It’s National Bookstart Week!

Yes, we missed it yesterday, but we’re catching up fast, honest. Bookstart offers the gift of free books to all children at three key ages before they start school, to inspire a love of reading that will give children a flying start in life. You should receive them via your health visitor/pre-school/nursery – so if your child has not had one and is still under school age, do go and ask in your local library, and they’ll know how to help you get one.

So we’re going to be All About The Books this week – old faves, new stories, and hopefully some brilliant recommendations too.

To start things off, you can see what we’ve done already by looking at our Book Shelf page.

A post really NOT to be missed is the fabulous 50 Books Every Child Should Read – honestly, if you haven’t already seen, please do go and browse the article, it’s wonderful, and the books themselves will have you “oooh-ing” and “Oh-I-Remember”-ing before you know it.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
