+ sneak peek + coming up on the blog this week, I answer your burning question: 'is it ok if my child wants to read the same story over and over and over and over and over...' ๐Ÿ™ˆ AND I'll tell you why it's actually a good thing for them to memorise their faves. Exhibit A: my Lexi, loving We're Going on a Bear Hunt for the umpteenth time. #favouritebooks #youvegotthismama #littlebookworm

New beautiful books. #littlereads

Monday morning presents โ˜บ๏ธ thanks babes ๐Ÿ˜˜ @lllallan #monday #littlereads

Did your school (or your children's school) participate in National Simultaneous Story Time today? I wonder if the half a million goal was reached?? I absolutely loved this year's book "The Cow Tripped Over the Moon" - what a wonderful story of persistence, bravery and overcoming challenges. A brilliant twist on the classic nursery rhyme. ๐Ÿ“ท by Clare @littlereads_ who has just launched her amazing new blog! If you're interested in all things kid's books - be sure to follow her! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ“š๐Ÿ‘

A book is a book, no matter how small.

Loving this #kmarthack! We opened up a can of spray paint whoop-ass on this Kmart train table, laid in a piece of faux lawn and voila! This week it's a farm and I always love to put books with our 'small world play' so we've put some of our farm favourites in a basket nearby. When the donkey misbehaves Lexi puts him in there too! Hehehe kids, eh?! #smallworldplay #downonthefarm #littlereads Inspired by the very amazing Casey @littlelifelonglearners ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

We just adore this book ๐Ÿ’• 'All Through The Year' by Jane Godwin and Anna Walker is a journey through each month, showcasing its special features, festivities and set beautifully within Walker's stunning depictions of the Australian seasons in collage, ink and pencil. .
The blurb reads: 'Open this book
And travel your way
All through the year
And treasure each day'
Swipe to have a look at April's pages and see if you can imagine how good my hot cross bun smelled! #boughtsixbags #hotcrossbunhoarder #fullfreezer @janiegodwin @_annawalker_ @penguinbooksaus

Easter, you are my favourite ๐Ÿ’•Here's my littlest bunny reading 'The Little Bunnies' by Margaret Wise Brown ๐Ÿฐ This book came as part of our @honeyandcoclub delivery this month and the girls received the parcels as part of their Easter present this morning. They're stoked. Lil's has so much crafty goodness she can barely contain herself! We'll save that crazy-messy-glue-and-paper-fun project for this afternoon (following our massive Greekster lunch at Papou Bill's). I'll also have to show you inside this gorgeous book later when I can pry it out of this bunny's paws! #bunnybooks #easterreads #littlereads

May your long weekend be filled with bouncing bunnies, family fun and cheeky chocolate.โ €

'My Love for You' is one of the sweetest poems from the anthology 'Days Like This', collated and illustrated by Simon James. This young man is feelin' all the love. Pot-fulls of love. Cans of it, even. So much love can be hard to express but the reader certainly gets the sense that alllll the vessels are full o' the feels. Today my big chick was really unwell so we spent most of the day holding down the couch, watching Disney Jr and reading a mountain of books. Tomorrow looks like more of the same is on the cards. And I can't lie, I love it loads when we get to spend a couple of days doing this. I just wish she was well at the same time ๐Ÿ’• #mamalove #biglove #littlereads

So I've learned that April is National Poetry Month in the US and I'm just going to roll with that here at Little Reads. Did you know that kids are primed to love poetry? The rhyme, rhythm and word play of poems make them so perfect to share with early childhood learners. This particular anthology is full of short poems of all kinds with a common theme of 'the outdoors' so your guys are sure to love it. Simon James is the talented author-illustrator of some of my all-time faves (Dear Greenpeace and Baby Brains) and here he has collated a fabulous group of poems written by himself and other poets too. When I read these poems to children, they respond so positively and always enjoy linking their own experiences to what we've read, it's brilliant! Keep an eye out for 'Days Like This' at your favourite library or bookstore, and tell me, does your family have a favourite poem or anthology? .

Just a little sneaky #sundayshopping opportunity to share with you. I've just nabbed a couple of these sweet @smallprintdesign personalised book bags and done my good deed for the day. How? Well, I found them when I was browsing the @market_days Good Friday Appeal charity market. So, not only do my littles get these adorable library bags but 50% of sales this weekend are being donated by Small Print to the Royal Children's Hospital - yay! MARKETDAYS is the code...happy shopping! #sundayshoutout #librarybag #littlereads ๐Ÿ“ท @_charlie.and.me

One of the things our family adores about Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram's Nutbrown Hare characters is their sweet, unbridled playfulness. How gorgeous is this vignette in 'Guess How Much I Love You in the Autumn'? Little Nutbrown Hare is playing in, under, on and around this cardboard box that the Autumn winds have blown his way. My kids really relate and it's the perfect entree to 'beyond the book' fun with boxes. #autumnreading #littlereads #funwithabox

Over the past two years we have brought story time + yoga to Little. We are excited to add new activities this spring as the weather starts to warm. #littleturnstwo
