When I was growing up I always had my nose in a book. Going to the library was the highlight of my week and I remember pleading for “just one more page” when my parents insisted it was lights out time! I have many fond memories of favourite books and characters from my childhood – including naming my first pet hamster Flossie after my favourite literary character Flossie Teacake!! Now that I have my own children I’m passionate about passing on my love my reading to them. Our bedtime story (or ten!) is the most precious part of my day.
I started my blog to have a record of the books we read and love as they grow up, the books I read myself along the way, and to connect with other parents who are passionate about books, reading and literacy issues.
