Before I seriously entered into this crazy blogging world my profession was as a Librarian. I started young; at 16 I worked in a children’s Library then I studied at university to become a Librarian (yes that is a thing!) and then continued my career based around children’s libraries and children’s reading. Since having a child at school who has been learning to read I have seen it all from the other side as a parent and putting the two together has been great for me. Little Man loves reading and has felt a huge sense of pride being able… View Post

The Easter holidays are either already happening for you or they start at the end of the week like ours.

This will hopefully be the start of many more children’s book posts from me. Children’s books are my thing. Before I decided to do this blogging thing full time my job was as a School Librarian and have celebrated many World Book Days over the year. World Book Day doesn’t just mean costume stresses the night before it is about bringing together children and families and reading together. It is about encouraging a love of reading in our kids and sharing stories together. World Book Day is the 1st Mach this year so just a few days to go now.… View Post
