The Ugly 5 Book by Julia Donaldson

We are big Julia Donaldson fans, so when we came across The Ugly five , which is one of Donaldsons lesser known books, we were keen to give it a go.

The Ugly Five" by Julia Donaldson is all about Africa's less conventionally attractive animals and celebrates their charm and character. Set against the backdrop of the African savannah, the story introduces readers to the "Ugly Five" - the...

My favourite children's book series EVER

Morrigan Crow Book series review

This is hands down my favourite children’s book EVER!

I have to admit that when my son first picked up this book from the library I was really skeptical, mostly because the first page in the book talks all about funerals and coffins! My son was 7 at the time and I really felt like I was pushing it in terms of it being appropriate, but he was adamant...

From Monty the Musical dog, who yearns to be famous but has his plans scuppered by the family cat, to Bad Bunny who...

You’re a star - a guide to self-esteem book review

This is such a fantastic book for children, I have been so impressed with all the activities for children to do and how they really make children think.

I didn’t really think my children had any issues with self-esteem, but doing these activities showed me some areas where they may need a bit of a boost before they may have become an issue. I’m a big believer in trying to pick things up early...

The Beast of Buckingham Palace book review

The Beast of Buckingham Palace book review

We have been reading this book at bedtime together and I must admit that this was one of my favourite children’s books I have read. It’s my favourite of the David Williams books!

The story is set in 2120 and London is in ruins because the people in previous times haven’t taken care of their homes. The forests have been burned down, the ice caps have all melted, there are floods and...
