Football Superstar Sticker Scene

This month as part of Parragon’s book buddy club we received a fun-filled activity book, Football superstar sticker scene.

stickerIt is full of great activities and 8 bright interactive all-action football scenes with over 90 stickers that will keep children busy at home and on the go. The pages are spread out nicely inside and well illustrated. I like the way this book is laid out. It’s perfect if both Isabelle and Scarlett decide they want to recreate the match scenes together, it means they can both have a section each.

Reading with Kids

Reading is a fun part of our daily routine and has been since the girls were little.

Reading is about how you make it and it is so important for us to keep reading fun and interesting for Isabelle and Scarlett, so they continue to enjoy reading rather than hearing ‘Do I have to read again?’

 I recently bought Scarlett some Biff, Chip & Kipper books as she starts school this September. They are designed to help children learn to read basic words which is perfect for when she starts school. I can remember when Isabelle used to read these books and she learnt some basic words just before she started.

 They are books with lively stories and funny illustrations created by reading experts and based on teaching practice.
