Aren't the little mistakes and misunderstandings that children make pretty amusing! My favourite at the moment is when BookBairn points out the 'perrychickers' on building sites, or when she used to say 'lellow' for the colour yellow! But when Adri gets confused about what happens on the Day of the Dead it creates a 'Marvellous Mexican Misunderstanding'. When Worldwide Buddies asked to partner up to do a giveaway of this adorable book I couldn't resist!

If you’re free on Sunday evening we would love to chat all things #littlefeministbookclub sharing our thoughts about the Little People Big Dreams series from @quartokids as well as chatting about other great picture books starring mighty girls to inspire our little feminists! Join in the chat over on Twitter!

You’d think at one year old The Wee Page Turner would have grasped the majority of concepts of babyhood but he’s been reading this book cover to cover in case he missed something! This is a laugh out loud manual for Babies about what to expect from their first few years and we love it! It gets grabbed from the book basket daily and the mirror is rather smudged now! This would make a great baby shower or new mum gift! Such fun! #gifted #newbaby #guideforbabies #babymanual #newbabygift #newbabybook

Over on the blog I’ve just shared my top ten alphabet books!! Pop over and read (and check out the awesome Abc cards we’ve shared too as a little bonus). Link in our bio!

Another little buzzy bee book before bed! When @raising.kinley shared this recently I just knew I had to get a copy! The bright illustrations and mix of non-fiction facts with cool activities and experiments makes this such a brilliant book for nature lovers! Can you tell I’m a bit bee-obsessed at the moment?
I’ve always had a thing for 🐝 because my mum called me bumblebee for my whole childhood (still does) and my husband calls my honey. I have lots of buzzy bee things and my colleagues even gave me a beautiful Bee scarf when I went on my career break. So yes I’m bee-crazy but this isn’t new for me. I’ve always been a sucker for those little honey-makers! #gifted

One of the goodies in our @lemonribbon parcel was this adorable bee book! The Wee Page Turner loves tracing his fingers along the cut out trails and I love the slightly softer colour palette. Perfect for little busy bees! #sponsored #worldbeeday #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #illustration

When the packaging is this cute, I’ll bet you can’t wait to see what’s inside!

Have you got your hat ready?

We will be watching some of the ceremony but today is one of our favourite local celebrations so we will also be hanging out with cows, sheep, horses, chickens and all sorts of farmyard friends! So it will be sun hats for us!

Also (not sponsored just sharing because it’s so good) this awesome story is currently on sale on amazon for £2.09!!! Bargain. I bought one because this is a library copy!

Been doing a little bit of STEM #bookishplay as we sort ‘park’ and ‘city’ pictures using lots of problem solving and classification vocabulary. To see the details and check out three other awesome activities inspired by the book “Up in the Leaves” check out the blog post linked in my profile!

You will not believe this but an actual real life bee just landed on The Book Of Bees! I brought it outside to have a look at during naptime and #bookmagic happened! Do you think he was brushing up on bee-tips or trying to see if he was included? 🐝

The sun is shining and both my bairns are napping so instead of doing the million and one things I should be doing I’m going to sit in the garden and finish this book! I’d heard so much raving about it that it couldn’t possibly live up to so feel like I’m finishing it out of duty rather than love. Enjoying the characters but the story is a bit meh and the writing is pretty basic - I know it’s YA but it feels so simplistic in phrasing and sentence structure. Anyway should be a quick one to finish and then I’m going to re-read The Secret Garden because it’s the perfect garden read! Let’s hope the sun shines tomorrow too!

Today’s pick for #EndpapersWednesday has me buzzing! The effect is electric! Expect to see more of this beautiful book over the coming weeks. I’ve already claimed it as mine and not the kids’!
