Kids Love to Read #43 & Giveaway

I feel like I have been a very quiet blogger recently - sorry for that! I am going through a blogging, reading and energy slump at the moment! But I'm hoping this week I will have two free mornings to get on with things and get back into the swing of it.

But I wouldn't miss reading and sharing the Kids Love to Read link-up! Because I love seeing what everyone else recommends - it's so funny as sometimes we overlap on recommendations and other times it's books I have never even heard of! I love discovering new picture books that you recommend in your posts and also reading what you think of books we love too!

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 Blog and Acorn Books is perfect for you! Kids 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!

Last Month's Favourites

Last month my favourite post came from Jenni over at The Bear and the Fox - a wonderful blog and YouTube channel which share great book reviews as well as fun days out (which are local to us so we can actually go on them so I love that!). She wrote a great post of 15 Tips on How to Raise a Reader which is something everyone should read!

Laura's favourite were two books that we also love, Discovering Architecture and My First Book of Relativity, reviewed by Raisie Bay.

And Acorn Books chose a review by The Next Best Thing to Mummy who shared a lovely nonfiction book about pregnancy and new babies for little ones - Let's Talk to Mummy's Tummy.

  1. I like the sound of the “Wonky Donkey”.

  2. I bought The Wonky Donkey for my granddaughter after seeing the hilarious video of the Scottish grandmother reading it to her grandchild. My granddaughter and I both really enjoy the book, so I thoroughly recommend it to all parents and grandparents of young children.

    1. It's a very funny read! Though I think that video is actually funnier than the book!
