I am so looking forward to reading your posts this month! I love curling up in autumn to read and cam't wait for all the recommendations to pour in!

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 this 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

My favourite post last mont came from We(e) Read(s) review of the Runaway Pea. I also really enjoyed the format of her review and the separate sections for what she thought and what her wee reader thought, something I might consider doing with BookBairn now that she is a bit older. 

Laura's favourite came from Book Nerd Cafe who shared reviews of some of the best new children's books. I was really keen to read her review of The Smeds and the Smoods (the new Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler collaboration) and also funny that one of the books she reviewed is our giveaway book this month! (See below).
