Happy World Book day
Books are a huge part of our day. From school reading, reading for pleasure and bedtimes stories, we have a huge collection of books that we have fallen in love with over the years.
We often read many of the same stories over and over, so much so that Hamish could recite the story to me. but I honestly love that there are so many authors who have paved the way for his love of reading.
So many books where the characters have come alive through a beautiful collaboration of text and illustrations, where he was taught a lesson, or when a book walked a journey with us.
Some of our current favourites are:
