Children’s Book Reviews

If there is one thing I love more than books, it’s Christmassy books – I have been creating Boo’s Book Advent Calendar over the last several months and it’s finally finished.  It’s comprised of mainly Christmas and Winter themed books this year, and when I was asked if I would like to review a Buzzy Friends Book I was very happy when Boo chose A Buzzy White Christmas

A Buzzy White Christmas - Children's Book Review

A Buzzy White Christmas is one of the books in the series of books called Buzzy Friends, the books were created by Michael Walter to keep his granddaughter Alice entertained and they follow the adventures of the four Buzzy Friends; Harty – a hedgehog, Treacle – a kitten, Galanda – a goose and Officer Buzzle who is a bee.

I have loved creating a Book Advent Calendar for Boo this year… as much, if not more, as I loved making her one for last year! I just adore books and reading and I am so happy that Boo does too. So the lure of Boo opening a book each day for the whole of December is just impossible to resist. (and of course it means I get to do lots and lots of shopping for books through the year too – it’s win win!!)


This year I seem to have gone a bit mad on the Christmas/Winter themed books – where as last year there was more of a balance between random books and Christmas/Winter ones. You can see what I did for Boo’s Book Advent Calendar 2015 here. When I got all of the books out to decide on the order I was a little worried that it’s Christmas overkill but we will see.

October has been a bit of a slow month for books, mainly because the majority of them have been packed away in boxes for our house move.

Books We've Read October - sharing some of the books we have read this month

We have made the most of the library for Boo’s books and my husband and I have had to read on our Kindles instead of proper books.

Boo and I have been in the Halloween Spirit for a while now, we have been making lots of lovely things including Spooky Halloween Puppets and a Giant Witch.  So when I saw that Kate over at Crafts on Sea had created an eBook called 30 Halloween Crafts of Kids I jumped at the chance to have a look!

30 Halloween Crafts for Kids

There is a whole range of activities in the book – and the only issue I had was deciding which Boo and I should try first! Kate says in her introduction that these crafts are ‘designed to be easy, simple and most importantly fun’ and she gets it right! Boo is 2 and wants to be involved in everything when we are crafting, and for some crafts we do it’s not always possible. For most of these crafts Boo could be the driving force and she had so much more fun! Read More…

I love this time of year, it’s time to get crafty, go on at least a hundred conker hunts and do lots and lots of reading. I must confess I have gone a bit mad recently and bought tons of new books for both Boo and myself (getting ready to hibernate over the winter – so that’s ok right?). I thought I would share 10 of the best Halloween Books for toddlers that we have discovered this year, as who doesn’t love a good ghost story?!
