The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home

My girls have loved reading with me for as long as I can remember. I enjoy reading to them every day, and seeing how their taste in books changes and develops. They are both now of an age where they can follow a basic story, ask questions about the pictures and the characters and be truly drawn into the plot. When Lost My Name got in touch to offer us the opportunity to review a personalised book for the girls, we were all delighted. Particularly when we realised that the book they wanted us to review was The Incredible Intergalactic Journey…

Jojo Maman Bebe sun protection: Review

Please note, this is a collaborative post with Jojo Maman Bebe but all views, opinions and hat-loving toddlers are my own. Since having children, I have been notably more aware of the effects of sun on the skin. I’ve never been a sunbather, but I also don’t bother too much with sun protection for myself.

From that point on, I was in touch directly with Ailsa…

As well as swimming in the pool, I love open water swimming – whether that’s in rivers, lakes or in the sea. About Konfidence I recently discovered Konfidence, who produce some amazing children’s swim accessories – just the sort of things my girls need. We were all delighted when Konfidence offered to send us a few of their products to try out, and we put them to good use on a sunny day in the…

Dinosaur Roar: Review

Since Lia could speak, she has been a huge fan of anything and everything to do with dinosaurs. I have no idea where this came from, Libby isn’t particularly into them and we’ve never really had dinosaur toys or watched dinosaur programmes on television. But whatever the reason, she adores them. Dinosaur Roar Book A couple of weeks ago, we were sent the Dinosaur Roar book by Paul Stickland and Henrietta Stickland. It was written in association with the Natural History Museum and published by Macmillan Books.The book is really colourful with bright pictures and very simple text. It is…
