I can clearly remember the first reading book I was given at school – it said ‘Look’ on every page and I was outraged that I had been given something so easy to read. I don’t know if it was because I had an older brother, or because my mum loved to read (and still does) but she taught me to read before I started school. Read more
We’ve reviewed some books and toys from the lovely Milly & Flynn before so when they got in touch again and asked if we would like to join in their 10 minutes book club (#10minsbookclub) for World Book Day I was very happy to agree. (And I know World Book Day was two weeks ago now but bear with me!)
We read to Toby every bedtime (the number of stories he gets sometimes depends on how late it is and how well behaved he’s been though!) and in the last month or so Gabe has really started enjoying books too. He’s not so much one for sitting and listening to a story but we have plenty of books that he likes to look at. He’s started bringing books over to us when he wants us to read to him, or sometimes he’ll even just sit and look at them himself.

R E A D // In the last few weeks Gabe has really started to love books. He brings them to me or his dad and thrusts them at you until you read to him. I'm so glad he's found books, pretty much by himself. As the first born we did everything with Toby, reading to him from being tiny, encouraging him to look at books but with Gabe he's had to work it out on his own. He seems to love them though and we'll do everything we can now to foster that. He's favourites are lift the flap books, and the 'That's not my…' books – luckily we have plenty for him to go at! #readingwithkids #secondbornproblems
The boys weren’t at nursery for World Book Day so we didn’t do any dressing up – I’m sure I won’t get off so easily next year when Toby is a school though! Read more
