I found a doll house at a garage sale that was from many years ago and has all the details that older expensive models had. I can’t wait to fill it up with furniture and dolls for my daughter. Who else had a dollhouse like this growing up?? (📷@kidsroomconcept)

Very excited about this book that was released on Friday and is breaking down the stereotypes.
Here's a link to a fantastic blog about it:

This set has been put together to help brand new readers, and works out at 60p per book. This mini site gives you more information about the methods it used:
My first reading library:
A box set of 50 paperback editions from the award-winning Usborne Very First Reading and First Reading series to inspire your child as he or she learns to read.
The first 22 Very First Reading titles let your child, with your help, take the first steps in reading, following the phonics methods used in schools.
The next 12 books are delightful short stories for children to try reading themselves, taken from the Usborne First Reading series Level One.
16 further books with slightly longer stories from the Usborne First Reading series Level Two will build stamina and reading confidence.
Big phonics workbook- Massive paperback workbook! 128 pages plus 6 pages of stickers, suggested age 4+, £12.99
These are also available as individual wipe clean books, let me know if you'd like to see those.
A bright and lively workbook full of enjoyable activities to help children recognise letter-sounds and use them to write simple words.
Lively colouring, drawing and copying activities provide an irresistible introduction to essential reading and writing skills.
Children will love the cheerful illustrations and colourful pages as they work through the activities, helping musical cats, elevated elephants and penguins in the park along the way.
Includes stickers to add to the fun.
This series is brilliant to encourage children to develop their speech into questions and sentences. So much to peek at and do, but not so much text that young children get overwhelmed.
Peep inside a tree, Board books with flaps, £6.99 or £7.99 each (just ask for price of a particular one)
Peep under leaves and behind branches to discover hibernating squirrels, creepy crawlies and more in this charming introduction to trees, filled with intricately cut flaps and holes to peep through. Find out what trees need to grow, what happens to a tree through the seasons, how long an oak tree can live for and much more.
This is absolutely fantastic if you have a child who struggles with or could just do with a more visual reminder of his or her routines. A lovely gentle way to help them understand what goes on over the course of a day.
Lift-the-flap my day, Board book with flaps, suggested age 3+, £9.99
With over 75 flaps to lift, this charming book will help children learn about routine and everyday events such as getting dressed, eating lunch and going to bed. Each page is filled with things to spot and talk about, and there are counting and matching activities too. A delightful book to share and to help develop language skills.

⭐️BRAND new title, just released this month and not available in shops until July.
Board book, suitable from birth, £6.99
Meet five busy bees in this adorable addition to the much-loved That’s not my... series. Babies and toddlers will love touching the textured patches as they meet bees with sparkly wings, fuzzy tummies and shiny eyes. The bright pictures and textures to stroke are designed to help develop sensory and language awareness.
Let’s celebrate PRIDE month with some fantastic books! These are three of my absolute favorite stories. JULIÁN IS A MERMAID, by Jessica Love, is breathtaking. The story begins when a little boy riding on the subway with his abuela witnesses three dazzling ladies dressed as mermaids. Julian wants to dress as a mermaid too and so he does, but what will Abuela think about the way Julian views himself in the world? SPARKLE BOY, by Leslea Newman, is about a young boy who likes playing with blocks and trucks. But what does he really want?? A sparkly, shimmery skirt and glittery nails just like his sister. Finally, JEROME BY HEART is a new beauty by Thomas Scotto about the friendship between two small boys and Raphael’s unabashed affection for Jerome. What do these fantastic books all have in common? They each celebrate acceptance, individuality, and the way in which all kids should be free to be themselves! Celebrate pride!! And always remember that love is love is love. If you tell your children they are free to be whatever they want when they grow up, don’t prevent them from being who they are. ❤️❤️ #kidlit#picturebooks#pridemonth#loveislove#kidsbooks#acceptance#individuality#childrensbooks#parents#parenting
