Encouraging bedtime reading with In the book

Encouraging bedtime reading with In the book

Recently, with lockdowns and a lot of life changes, we have got out of routine. Somedays seem harder than others and the children's behaviour goes from brilliant to frustrated and tired quite quickly.

Understanding children and teens this amazing book review

Understanding children and teens this amazing book review

This book, by Judy Bartkowiak, is just a perfect reflective book for 2020. During the first lockdown families had to contend with homeschooling, working full time and juggling day to day things on top. It was a very testing time for a lot of families. This book, Understanding children and teens, is a coaching tool to help you understand your children and encourage positive behaviour, despite all the stresses going on around us. VIEW the POST

An exciting new book in the Emily Knight series I am… Becoming

I love finding out about new books and authors, that are new to me, it’s a little lesson and finding out about a new person is always exciting. Isla loves reading and she has started reading, quite big books, when she is winding down in bed at the end of the day. She was excited to receive a copy of Emily Knight I am Becoming… from author Abiola Bello. This is the third book in the Emily Knight series. Isla really wants to read the other books now.

Time School: We Will Honour Them book review

Time School: We Will Honour Them book review

I have been trying to read a lot more this year, I think I have read more books since January than I have in the past 5 years. I forgot how much I love to read, I could sit and read for hours when I get into a good book. I remember a few months back I had nearly finished the book and so I kept going, it was 2am before I put the book down. Today I am honoured to share an excerpt and competition to win a copy of Time School: We Will Honour Them. The new book by Nikki Young. VIEW the POST

Working Mothers: The Essential Guide – Book Review

Being a working mother I found this book very informative, its a great relief to know that I am simply not EXPECTED to have everything done and be that perfect! I am lucky that I come from a household where hubby helps out as much as me, I rarely cook and in turn I do the other things, like clean!!! I am also lucky because I have family to help me with childcare and was extremely lucky to have the opportunity to go back to work part time (instead of full time), so I can raise our son for the majority of the week. I know I am because most of my antenatal friends and friends with young children had to go back to work full-time, but this book explores lots of options for mothers and tonnes of legal information. A whole section on “childcare”, what it costs, the different options…
