Libby can very categorically be described as a book lover. We read a book with her every bedtime, but she always insists on an additional opportunity to read during the day and, my pet hate, she loves to take a book in the car. Given half a chance, she would also take a book with her when we go on the train, to ballet, to drama group, to the animal park… you get the general idea.
But it drives me mad how they get all dog-eared. They end up on the floor of the car and get trodden on. This leads to the cover coming off and the whole book getting covered in mud. Don’t even start me on the fate of pop-up books. Whilst I’m moaning about Libby (it doesn’t happen very often, let me vent), I have to mention her love of “writing” (she can’t write). Most mornings when she comes downstairs, she asks to write. She has always lost her pens and can never find any paper, cue me scrabbling around to find some and all of us ending up late to wherever we are supposed to be.
Anyway, to cut a long story short I have found the solution, as modelled by Lia.
This is the Palena Junior version of the beautiful bagabook. The reason Lia is modelling it is because it is her Christmas present for Libby. This is what you get for the book loving toddler who has everything. Not only will it be ideal for putting a book in that can actually go everywhere with her, it is equally great for a notebook and some pens. That way she can take them out with her, and also keep them safe and tidy in the house. Now remind me why we’ve only got one of these…
The bag can cope with various sizes of books due to its inner support. It also contains a bookmark, magnetic clasp, zipped pocket and six pen holders. Whilst this is the junior version, I personally think it will be fine for teenagers as well as little ones like Lib, the design is so sweet and tasteful, horse loving older children in particular would be delighted with this.
Here is a photo of the bag minus the baby to give you a better idea of the design. This is the reverse side, and I’ve put the little zip up a bit so you can see where it is, but it would be a concealed pocket if I hadn’t let you in on the secret.
If you have a book loving child like Lib, or you fancy one for yourself (they make grown up versions too), they are available to buy on their website or you can sign up for alerts about new products and other news. Bagabook have even given me a 20% discount code that you can use, just input the code PS020 at the checkout. You also have the chance to win one using the simple rafflecopter below.

Please note that I was sent the bagabook for the purpose of an honest review. All views, opinions, baby bag models, book loving toddlers and irrational hatred of dog eared books are my own.
