What the Kids Read: May faves & Monster Party giveaway

For the past few weeks the kids have been reading these three books on rotation. Well, they can’t actually read – so I’ve been reading to them and they’ve been looking at the pictures and reciting along where they’ve picked up the words!

What the Kids Read: Mibo Animal Board Books

We reviewed the gorgeous Hardback (or ‘for best’ as Athena calls them) Mibo Books a while ago, and although we do read them quite often we have to be so careful as Arlo is still in the destructive phase and I don’t want anything to happen to the ‘best’ books!

What the Kids Read: Bedtime Stories Castles

I love a good bedtime story, and now Arlo is a little older we tend to read one together with Athena on the sofa as he’s too heavy to hold and read if we go into Athena’s room and if I leave him to his own devices on her mid-sleeper he tries to go backwards off it! We were recently…
