Kids Love To Read # 7
Welcome to Kids Love to Read a monthly linky that is co-hosted by Laura at Laura’s Lovely Blog and Angela from Days in Bed. Unfortunately Angela is unwell so I have stepped in to co-host this month. For people who don’t know a linky is a way for bloggers to share blog posts about a certain topic – in this case anything related to encouraging children to read, be it book reviews, activities or phonics we want to hear about them.
You can check out all of the posts that were linked up in April by taking a look at Kids Love to Read #6. Thanks to everyone who linked up last time – there was some great posts highlighting some lovely books.
This month Laura is linking up with a book review of Marmaduke the Very Different Dragon. My host post is about how I’m passing on my love of Beatrix Potter to my daughter.
Last Month’s Favourites
For the second month in a row, Laura’s favourite is going to be Diary of An Imperfect Mum with Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the Tale of the Wizard’s Whisper she loved it so much, that she actually went on to buy the book for her son!
My favourite post was The Butterfly Mother, What Will Danny Do Today? I love the idea of a book prompting lots of conversation at bedtime.
