I nearly didn't post this because it's not my 'usual' post... but decided that I shouldn't let that determine what I share here. So please indulge me in a Proud Parenting Moment (hey I have lots of Not Proud ones too, don't worry πŸ˜‰). I recently read #memfox's gorgeous new book to my 6 year old son. It's a wonderful and gentle look at Australia's multicultural society, and the many Aussie families who move here from all over the world, including from countries that currently aren't safe. He was concerned that some refugee kids and families are forced to stay in detention, which he thought sounded like 'jail'. He worried they might be lonely, and thought they should also get to live here and go to school like he does. So he suggested that we ask the Boss of Australia to let them out (swipe right). And hopes to receive a reply soon.
We deliberately don't watch the news around the kids, so it's a little heart-breaking to see him starting to comprehend some of these troubled sides of humanity. But on the other hand, it gives me hope to see him considering his role in the world. When I asked why he wanted to write a letter, he said: "I want to be a helper." ❀️

FEATURE ✨ We only have 5 little fingers and 10 little toes in this shot but it was the best I could get. I’m always thinking of ways to incorporate counting in the activities my daughter and I do together and in the books we read. Numbers and opportunities for counting are everywhere you look. Books make it easy to incorporate them into your routine. As we continue to learn about our different body parts (at the moment we're especially interested in our ears and noses and how fingers fit so nicely in them πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚) we're loving TEN LITTLE FINGERS AND TEN LITTLE TOES by Mem Fox.

Just last night as I read the line 'and both of these babies as every knows had ten little fingers...', my daughter put her hands out in front of her face and wiggled her fingers and smiled. We have been counting the fingers and toes in the book every night for ages and it's just clicked! This book is so great for practicing counting, as every other page has fingers and toes to count up to ten or twenty. If your child has mastered counting to ten or twenty forwards, why not try counting backwards? I love books like this that make learning new skills easily accessible and engaging for little ones. Plus the story ends with three little super adorable kisses on the tip of the baby's nose. This book is on my must have list.

This month over @kidlitpicks the theme is Counting Up and Counting Down. Share a favourite counting book and tag #kidlitpicks_123 for a chance to be featured. Thanks, @petitbookcorner for this precious share.

So excited about this coin collection that arrived today! 😊 #memfox #possummagic #royalaustralianmint

On of the highlights of the ACEL Early Learning Conference was that I got to meet the irrepressible and inexhaustible Mem Fox. My friend @MegClarke and I couldn't help jump the signing line to get a picture. #maketheearlyyearscount #tenlittlefingersandtenlittletoes #MemFox @cammymoor @poke_eamonn @shereejphillips @taleibreez75 @touchedbyolivia @jaysjungletv @TheEarlyYearsCount @sandielagaaia

Next year we are on track to introduce intergenerational craft sessions, allowing the grandies to craft with our pee wees, inspired by #memfox book Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge. It’s been a goal of mine to engage seniors in nursing homes to get out of their homes and teach our younger generation all the skills they have learnt over the years.
If you take out your grandies for coffee and wanted to join us, make sure you sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know when our classes start.

'Learning to read comes from the happiness of reading.' As a teacher, I already knew the importance of having strong literacy skills and thought this book would be a waste of time to read... I'm surprised to say that I read this entire book all in one afternoon and hope that any new parent (or parent to be) gives it a read too! #readingmagic #memfox #readaloud #readreadread #alwayslearning #onceateacheralwaysateacher #maternityleave
