Books x 3 – A little Spanish anyone?

A few weeks back, I did a post on German books for toddlers. The response was so good, that I thought I would regularly feature “foreign language” books. Today we have some Spanish books. As I only speak very little Spanish, I decided to get another bilingual family to Guest Post for you! Do go and […]

Books x3 – Being you

Theme world continues.. this week’s theme if “Being Yourself” – in a loose sense. Hope you like the choice! Remember all the books are available on my Amazon Store – the (very) small (!) proceeds  I make go towards giveaways and charity…  Dance, Giles Andreae & Guy Parker-Rees. I have to confess to picking this […]

Books x3 – At the Airport

Well… I seem to be slipping into “theme” world. Nothing wrong with that… Today’s theme is Airports! Airport books can be GREAT if you are going on a long journey or to, erm, the airport for the first time. It is also great when you try and explain to a 2 year old why Daddy […]

Books x3 – a little German anyone?

As some of you are aware, I am Austrian and am keen to bring Red Ted & Pip Squeak up bilingually. Key to the success is that I speak lots of German with them, but I also think music and books are important. To me language is also about culture and music and books are integral part […]

Books x3 – Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler

Julia Donaldson & Axel Scheffler is another one of our favourites. (We have many favourites by the looks of it!). Here are three of their books:  The Gruffalo – Now I know that this is the “Obvious one”, but there is no way you can do a review of said author and illustrator, without the […]

Books – For the little ones

I have no real definition of who “the little ones” are, but we started reading to our two from the word go!! So I guess these books can be for anybody – especially those sub 6 months!! (But they have appeal beyond that too!) My big animal book, by Roger Priddy. We inherited this book […]

Books x3 – Who’s Hiding, The Three Robbers & Magic

Who’s Hiding, by Satoru Onishi. Always on the look out for something new, different and unusual. Came across Who’s Hiding and love the quirky illustrations. In some ways this is a little bit of a “memory” game, as animals “hide” on different pages – though there are clues. It encourages children to explore and recognise […]

Books – Hippos Go Berserk

Hippos Go Beserk, Sandra Boynton. I love this little board book by Sandra Boynton. I love picking up “something different” by authors I haven’t heard of.. maybe this shows my ignorance. Mmmh. Anyway, musings aside, this again (again again) is a lovely little read. It is a board book and it is all about one […]

Books – Follow The Line

Follow The Line, by Laura Ljungkvist. Another one of my random purchases – I liked the cover. I bought. I know you should never judge a book it’s cover (and I have failed on that count several times before), but I wasn’t disappointed this time. What a beautiful book. Reminiscent of child activity books where […]

Klipp Kopp

Klipp Klopp – Nicola Smee – as Red Ted gets older, suddenly the German Book market explodes with excellent books. We recently ordered “Klipp Klopp” – about some farm animals going for a ride on a big horse and he LOVES the book! I can lure him upstairs with a promise of Klipp Klopp when […]
