Kids Love to Read #55 & Giveaway

 Gosh, is it just me or has July gone by in a flash? BookBairn starts school in just three weeks and I can't believe it! The Wee Page Turner also starts nursery and all things being well he has been allocated 9-3 five days a week so I really don't know what I'm going to do with myself other than bask in the free time and read some books (but seriously I have a book draft to finish and a mountain of DIY and home improvement to organise that will keep me busy for a while!). And hopefully I'll have some more time for reviews and blogging which has really taken a serious hit in lockdown as I just don't have the energy even when I do have the time. But no more excuses because there's always time for Kids Love to Read!

So back to this month's link-up, if you share or review children's books or are raising a reader whilst writing a blog then our co-hosted monthly linky with  Laura's Lovely BlogKids Love to Read is a link-up to share blog posts written by other bloggers that star wonderful children's books. It's a great way to find new blogs to read and new book recommendations too, as well as invite people to come and read your own blog.

So if you write about your favourite children's books I would love it if you link-up your post! And I'm looking forward to reading them all!

Laura has also set up a Pinterest Board for Kids Love to Read, where she pins everyone’s posts featured, as well as lots of lovely bookish posts. If you would like to join as a co-contributor please message me. The more the merrier!

Last Month's Favourites

My favourite post last month came from The Next Best Thing to Mummy who reviewed a book that we also enjoyed all about being true to yourself and loving the things you love! I've linked my Instagram post about it below too.

Kids can be so changeable, can’t they? One minute they love My Little Pony and the next they love Barbie. Or they flit from tractors to dinosaurs to trains. Or, not that I’m speaking from experience, they love My Little Pony and trains! And this story, a little girl tells us about all her favourite things, from her light up shoes, to her red pencil, to the view from our window. But the girl knows that her feet grow her pencil shortens and the scene from her window changes. That is one constant through all this, there is someone she’ll always laugh… And that is what (who) she likes the very, very most. Ultimately this story is an ode to the unwavering love a child has for their mother. A mother’s love never changes, she is constant when nothing else remains the same. A beautiful lyrical story, with child-like illustrations, this is a lovely story to cuddle up and read together. (Sent by the publisher @bigpicturebooks for review.)
