9 Months: A month by month guide to pregnancy for the family to share
About 2 ½ years ago, Courtney and I met with the lovely Rachel Williams (publisher of Wide Eyed Editions and Frances Lincoln children's books, and creative brain behind a whole lot of amazingly beautiful children's publications), and she asked us the following question: if we were to write one non-fictional book for the children's market, what would that book ...

Sanctuary by Wendy Marloe and Joanna Chen
I recently came across this newly published book written by Wendy Marloe and Joanna Chen and it's really got me thinking. It's also inspired a really interesting conversation with my girls - What is your special place? Sanctuary is inspired by the notion that we all have a special place - a place of refuge; a ...

Jemmy Button by Jennifer Uman & Valerio Vidali
I think real life is usually a bit over-rated – in the fact that ‘stories’ can be so much more exciting than ‘real-life’ could ever really be. But this ‘real-life’ story is really quite remarkable. In the early 1800s Captain Robert Fitzroy set sail from England to the islands of Tierra del Fuego (South America). ...

A few months ago my friend Gabrielle Blair, the famous Design Mom, asked me to share some photos of our home, for the use in the book she was working on. I was super flattered to be asked, because I have been a Design Mom fan from the moment we started blogging. Gabrielle is so ...

Where’s the Pair? by Britta Teckentrup
Courtney wrote about The Odd One Out by Britta Teckentrup and I bought it immediately – Otto loves ‘looking’ books and particularly ones where he can get involved. I love them too – these moments sitting and chatting to my 3-year-old over a book are all too precious. How they chat at this age is ...

Secret Garden, an intricate colouring book
My mom bought this Secret Garden colouring book for my kids last year and it was recently rediscovered when we went through our crafts cupboard last week during the move. My kids (especially Quin) have enjoyed colouring in the intricate colouring pages, and the end result is so pretty I've started hanging up all of their ...

The main character, Rosie Revere, dreams of becoming an engineer, but is very insecure and practises her skills in secret in the attic. ...

Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles
Sometimes I have slight nostalgia pangs to the days when my children were cute, cuddly little babies, but I do love seeing them grow up and start discovering new things all the time; books being one of them. We did a huge tidy up in the kids room over the holidays and gifted all the ...

Aspen's Roots
Did you know that a new aspen tree is not started from a single seed like other trees, but as a root sucker generated from other existing roots beneath the ground? And that, because of this, aspens grow in groves where they are all related (clones) of each other with intertwining generations (grandparents and great ...

Build The Human Body
My oldest has a birthday coming up. Eight! It sounds so big to me! He's at that tender age where he is no longer a little kid in a needy way, but yet he's still so naive and blissfully unaware of 'cool'. Still happy to hold my hand as we walk into his classroom and ...

Simply For Flying, a children's logbook

Ekaterina Trukhan recently got in touch to share her first picture book with us. It's called 'Me and My Cat' and it's a sweet and sometimes silly story about a little girl and her best friend cat.

Coloring Without Borders is incredible! From the sadness of the crisis at the US border earlier this year, where hundreds of families were separated, a beautiful project with a wonderful mission hatched : to help end family separation and to reunite all families who remain torn apart. The concept grew and grew with more than 80 talented artists creating sketches and illustrations from around the world. More than just a simple coloring-in book, this encourages children — both Spanish and English speaking– to colour and use the space that the artists have created but also to create something more beautiful, to express themselves with their imagination. And even to color over the lines... without borders! Hundreds of copies of the book have been sent to children who have been separated from their families, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book goes to Families Belong Together. We love everything about this idea! ️ What a perfect gift for every child you know. Read more, tap on the link. @coloringwithoutborders @fams2gether #familiesbelongtogether
