Books! We love books in our house. Jack (8) and Tom (6 next week) have more books on their birthday wish lists than they do toys or games, George (4) demands stories be read to him daily, and Fred... Well, ok, Fred likes to eat books but he is only 1. At least he's enjoying them! It's a start right? Reading has always been a big part of our family time. Even Jack still enjoys a good bedtime story along with his younger brothers. Sometimes we read a chapter of something like Harry Potter, sometimes we read something lighter like a Julia Donaldson or Sam Lloyd book (or two or three). It depends on their moods, how tired they are, and how well I think they'll listen that evening. We like funny books. We like adventures. We like books with a twist. These Elli Woollard books, illustrated by Benji Davies, check both those boxes! I sat down with my younger two to read The Gaint of Jum after nursery one afternoon and they loved it. They already know so many versions of
Me, The Hubby and our Four Monsters! Sleepless nights, dirty nappies, tantrums, and tears. But also adventures, fun, laughter, and a whole lot of love! Not every day is easy, but every moment is precious. Welcome to My Life as Mumma Walker!
