    I was a complete book worm as a child. It wasn’t teddies and soft toys that adorned my bed at night: it was books. I always had a pile at the foot of my bed, and often several underneath my pillow, stashed away for safe keeping once my eyes had gotten too heavy to read another page. It’s a joy I really looked forward to sharing with my own child whilst pregnant, and I am so glad that as he’s gotten older, Pickle is showing more and more that he’ll be just the same. He loves a good story and I’m always up for story time. read more

    Review: The Very Hungry Caterpillar Goodies

    There’s something extra magical about sharing something with your child that you remember enjoying yourself, and The Very Hungry Caterpillar is definitely one of those things. I don’t know what it is about Eric Carle’s book, but I absolutely loved it as a child. I don’t think we had our own copy at home (correct me if I’m wrong Mom – I know you’ll be reading this!), but it was one of those books that if ever I saw it – at school, the library, a friend’s house – it called out to me to be read. The Jolly Postman was the same! And Spot the Dog. I was obviously a sucker for books with in-built activities.

    Imagine my delight when we were sent some baby-friendly The Very Hungry Caterpillar goodies to test out: a baby change mat, a developmental toy and a bath robe. They were put to good use straight away, as soon as they landed on the doorstep (especially as they arrived the day after I accidentally left our change bag mat at a friend’s house!).
