The Great Paper Caper
Mr. Oliver Jeffers, the handsome man himself, told me last spring that his new book would be released in October.  So, being on the alert, I sent him an e-mail last week asking (ever so politely) when, oh WHEN, can I buy his new book??!!  He replied immediately and told me it's available NOW!  Whoo ...

Book Binge
I have become a little bit obsessed. First I started with one, and then we bought another, and then we had to have ALL of them. And now I've decided we should get them ALL in hardback! Yes, it's children's books I'm talking about. But not just any children's books; I'm obsessed with one author/illustrator ...

Welcome to our newest #babyccinokidsboutiques on the block! Eco conscious clothing and decor for adventurous kids … Bella + Phoenix! Brand @bella_and_phoenix is created by Debbie Turrell a Sussex based graphic designer/illustrator and mum. From a young age both her children showed an avid interest in the natural world. From rock pooling to finding mini beasties in the back garden, everything would be inspected (not dissected!) and then avidly talked about. Next would come the barrage of questions! It inspired her to come up with the 'Tee of Knowledge’. The clothing is organized into cute themes and children will definitely feel inspired when they are dressed and ready for an afternoon spent amongst nature! Being passionate about ethical production, all the clothing is handprinted to order in Bella and Phoenix Sussex studio on organic cottons, using eco friendly inks. The packaging is recycled and 100% biodegradable too. We hope your little explorers will be inspired!

Wilkie has requested this as his bedtime story every night for the last few weeks, and it’s one of those books I never tire of reading. Arno and his Horse is a beautiful story, written with rhyming text and illustrated with beautiful, rich watercolour illustrations of an Australian country setting.

Today we had the very best sunny day in London town! We visited our amazing #babyccinoboutiques @vildhouseoflittle for a studio tour and sneak peek at their newest items! We enjoyed @somersethouse and the @londondesignbiennale including the inspiring free exhibit, Forest For Change, directed by @esdevlin. We then went to meet some beautiful elephants in @coventgardenldn at @petershamnurseries bringing attention to the @coexistencecampaign. Needless to say, it was a full day and @laraoflondon got the babe back in time for a nap. Now tell us, what new energy has the summer sun given you? #babyccinokids #babyccinotravels

How to make honeycomb… a fun activity to bake with children. Watching the mixture bubble up is like watching a seriously exciting science lesson! Once made, broken up into chunky shards it is devoured by the whole family. Even better crushed onto vanilla ice cream makes for a fun summery dessert.
