What a busy month August is for us with back to nursery and trying to pack as much into the last couple of weeks of holidays as we can as well as August being the month of the Edinburgh Book Festival! But I wouldn't miss the chance to link-up with you all and read all the fabulous posts shared for #KidsLoveToRead

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 (who is currently taking some maternity leaves so it's just Laura and I think month) 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. Also last month we had a few people linking up posts from Instagram sharing their reviews too which is wonderful!

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 Rosie's Library over on Instagram who shared a lovely photo and review of one of our favourite books - The Day the Crayons Quit.

This book is amazing! It actually made me laugh out loud, which isn’t the best for a bed time book but I just couldn’t help it. It’s about crayons that have had enough and have decided that they’re not going to take only being used once in a while, any more! Each colour writes a letter to their owner Duncan. Every letter is so funny and witty. One of my favourite things is the way each crayon signs off, and the final few pages. The illustrations are lovely and perfect for every age, they would even encourage little ones to be more creative with their own drawings, so make sure your little one uses all of their crayons or they might end up with a pile of very angry letters in their pencil case! It’s a good size book, we ended up having to read it over two nights. . . Rosie’s review - She fell asleep both nights. . .

Laura's favourite came from the always fabulous Jenni from over at The Bear and the Fox who shared a superb Kids Book Bingo Summer Challenge to keep kids busy and reading over the summer holidays.
