Baby and Toddler Book Giveaway with Book People

Baby and Toddler Book Giveaway with Book People

Does your child enjoy reading? I’m raising a little bookworm! I’ve been reading to Autumn since she was about 6 weeks old and she absolutely loves books. Whether she’s on holiday, the library or at the park as the sun begins to set, reading is one of her favourite things to do. We recently received some lovely baby books from Book People – and you can win a duplicate set in the giveaway further down this page! View Post

Review: My First Photo Book

Review: My First Photo Book

Autumn loves looking at photographs of family around the room, in albums and on my phone. She smiles at the familiar faces, says who they are and prods at them. Of course, the problem with this is that all of these things are breakable and potentially harmful. I was recently asked to review the newly launched “My First Photo Book” by Photobox. This seemed like a great way of providing Autumn with photos of those most special to her in an appropriate format for her.  View Post

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

Autumn’s favourite books, autumn 2017

It’s been absolutely ages since I last wrote about Autumn’s favourite books. She still absolutely adores books, so much so that a few months ago I bought a small bookshelf for our living room. As it’s at such a low height, she can get her books herself and look through them independently or ask us to read them. Although her vocabulary obviously doesn’t extend that far, being 13 months old, she waves the book at one of us and makes a noise! Although she looks at all of them, she has some definite favourites at the moment. View Post

Sunday Review: Maternity Leavers, Soozi Baggs

Sunday Review: Maternity Leavers, Soozi Baggs

A couple of months ago, I was sent a book to review, Maternity Leavers by Soozi Baggs. I don’t often find the time to sit down and read, now that Autumn is on the move, so it’s taken me a little longer than first anticipated to get round to this. However, I’m glad that I found some time to read this. I think it’s difficult for many women on maternity leave to make a decision about work. Some can’t wait to get back, while others dread it and either try to be a full time stay at home mum or work from home/become self-employed. View Post
