I haven’t been writing much lately, we seem to have hit a bump in the ‘we never get sick’ road. And today is another day that has me on the couch, Miss Five in bed and Miss Three chugging along at full speed, bored and stir crazy. We are so gearing up for school transition which officially starts tomorrow (how the heck did that happen?), finishing (well, struggling with would be a more accurate description) my last uni assignment for the year and other busy family-life stuff.
However, it’s book club night tonight and every time I talk about it Miss Five asks if she and I can start a book club. And of course anything Miss Five does, Miss Three will follow. So here you have it, our first video blog book club.
These are really fun books, perfect for age five to perhaps ten or twelve and would be great for young readers to read on their own. As it is I have read this one multiple times for Miss Five and she has been found several times lying on her bed pouring over the pages (much to her mothers delight). This is the first in a series so it should keep us going for a while.
Miss Three’s video review is a little less comprehensible, but that’s not because she loves this book any less. Mr Good and I have read this one to death – it’s one I sometimes hide when I just can’t face it again. While it’s certainly not my favourite it is still a lovely book. There’s a princess, pink sparkly wool that you can feel and follow on each page and nice rhyming text.
The girls had so much fun making these videos Miss Five declared she wanted to do one every day. I’ll spare you that but I think there may be more to come.
