Books x3 – The Garden: Planting a Rainbow, Up, Down, and Around & "The Apple & The Butterfly"

I have three lovely garden books for you this week. There are so many wonderful garden books out there, that it was really hard to choose. I hope these are a reasonably good selection! Ones that appeal to different age groups – the last one especially appealing to mummies and daddies that love a bit […]

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 – 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 […]

With everyone getting stuck all over the place, thanks to the Volcano in Iceland – including The Englishman, we have been looking at the sky alot – lots of blue skies and lovely fluffy clouds. Also, I had to explain to Red Ted that there were no planes flying… So out came a much loved […]

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 – 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 […]
