I love to read, and I have passed this love onto my children. We read every day. L is an advanced reader capable of reading most things although she is only eight. While reading the text poses little or no problem to L, the content of some books is far ahead of her capabilities to understand and process, so I have been reading books ahead of her to see if they are suitable. I will try to review these books here, and if L does read them, I will include her thoughts as well. A has started on her reading journey too, though at five, she isn’t on novels yet, but she still enjoys listening to anyone else willing to read them to her! The books I review on here I have either bought for my family or borrowed from the library. If the book has come from a different source, I will note that in my review. All of the opinions are my own, and those of my children only.
Many of the activities we have done have come from things I remember doing as a child, things done at the kids schools and playgroups or from my imagination. If I’ve gotten the idea from somewhere else, I will endeavour to acknowledge that source where applicable. Also, these are the activities that I am comfortable doing with my children, not everyone has the same comfort level, so if you don’t like something you see here, please try something else. Really, we just want to have fun and learn, and I want to share our experiences. So come along and have some fun with us on our play-based learning journey 🙂

Around my blog you will come across some affiliate links, like the banners below, and the links attached to the photos and titles of books I have reviewed. If you click on these links and make a purchase through that store, I will receive a small commission. In this way, I hope to supplement our art, craft and book supplies 🙂
