BLANKET & BOOK PAIRING!
.
Something about this quilt says “classic children’s book” to me. So many good pairing options, but I recommend Margaret Wise Brown’s “The Runaway Bunny” or a beautiful edition of Margery Williams Bianco’s “Velveteen Rabbit.” Beatrix Potter’s “Peter Rabbit” would also pair perfectly! Honestly if you gift this lovely quilt without a beautiful children’s book it’s a real missed opportunity!!! 😜
.
Which would you choose?

ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
Di kamar seorang bocah laki-laki, ada sebuah boneka kelinci yang dijahit dari kain beledu. Suatu hari, ia mendengar kisah tentang mainan yang secara ajaib menjadi hidup berkat cinta kasih anak-anak. Si Boneka Kelinci sangat terpukau. Ia ingin sekali menjadi hidup. Tapi, kapankah keajaiban itu akan terjadi padanya?
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
“Real isn’t how you are made. It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become real. Generally, by the time you are real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
Suatu hari, mainan kesukaan si anak lelaki hilang. Sebagai gantinya, diambilnya si Boneka Kelinci dan segera saja ia jatuh sayang padanya. Begitu sayangnya sampai-sampai ia begitu marah ketika seseorang menghina Boneka Kelincinya.
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
“You mustn’t say that. He isn’t a toy. He’s real!”
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
Dan begitulah bagaimana mainan menganggap diri mereka menjadi nyata. Boneka Kelinci itu akhirnya merasakannya juga, dan sangat bahagia. Hingga suatu hari, si anak sakit. Semua mainan usang disingkirkan, termasuk Boneka Kelinci. Dia merasa sangat sedih, sampai dia menitikkan air mata... dan terjadilah keajaiban.
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
Kisah #TheVelveteenRabbit ini indah sekali, meski ditulis hampir 100 tahun yang lalu di Inggris. Saya jadi mengerti, mengapa karya #MargeryWilliams ini terus dicetak ulang dan menjadi literatur klasik hingga kini. Buku ini berhasil membuat saya merenung, betapa menjadi orang dewasa telah membuat kita kehilangan cinta ini. Cinta yang membuat sekeliling kita menjadi nyata. Bukan hanya boneka atau mainan, tapi juga pohon, bunga, rumput, binatang, angin, bebatuan.

When we love something, we care about them so much that we don’t take them as granted. But as we grow older, water is just water, except it is Aqua. Stone is just a stone.. except it is Swarovsky.

Apakah cinta ini ikut menguap bersama imajinasi kanak-kanak kita, justru saat batang usia kian menjulang menuju pemilikNya?

🎁Book present idea here! This is an absolute classic and is so well loved by children. (Especially when read and acted with parents or caregivers!) This story is sure to be requested again and again!
Pete is feeling bummed because it's raining and he can't play ball outside with friends. When his dad notices how sad he is, he decides to make Pete into a pizza to cheer him up. Silliness ensues as Pete is "kneaded", twirled up high, covered in oil (water), flour (powder), and a host of other actions that are necessary for making pizza. Pete's mom even gets in on the act. My kids favorite part is the end when the pizza runs away and gets chased. So much fun and laughter! Everyone is in a great mood at the end of this read, including the readers.❤ I love the interaction between Pete and his parents, very loving and helping to cheer up their son. I especially love the potential for wonderful interaction between littles and whoever is reading them the story. This is one of those stories that makes kids really enjoy and start to love reading. Bonus, all the materials to make your little into a pizza, just like Pete, can easily be found around your house!

Looking to further a love of reading, a wonderful interaction with your little, and have quite a few giggles, check this story out! 🍕

Since I am participating in #believathon over on Twitter, it seemed a perfect time to reread this childhood favorite, especially when I discovered the audiobook was read by Rainn Wilson! I had forgotten how much fun this book is - so many fun puns and plays on words, so much humor and wit! Rainn WIlson narrates this story with perfect voices, as I suspected he would!
If it’s been a while since you passed through the tollbooth, or you’ve never visited the realms of Dictionopolis or Digitopolis, or journeyed with Milo to save the lovely Rhyme and Reason, I highly recommend this audiobook. It would also be a fantastic family read aloud! #thephantomtollbooth #rainnwilson #audiobooksforkids #classicchildrensbooks #mglit #middlegradebooks #familyreadaloud #iteachthird #nortonjuster #mgfantasy

It's sunny and 61 degrees and these are the kind of days I love North Texas weather. The fam played some tennis this morning, then went shopping for some dressy clothes for the kids for a fancy holiday dinner we've got tonight. I hate to spend money on clothes they'll only wear a couple times, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

#SiPeluit diterjemahkan oleh sastrawan Korrie Layun Rampan dari judul asli #Tootle karya #GertrudeCrampton yang terbit pada tahun 1945. Ceritanya tentang sebuah kereta kecil bernama Peluit, yang belajar di sebuah sekolah sepur di dusun Lower Trainswitch. Di sana, dia belajar banyak hal. Namun yang terpenting: berdiri di atas rel dengan aman agar bisa menjadi Sepur Kilat penghubung New York-Chicago.

Namun suatu hari, saat berlatih berdiri di atas rel, ia terpukau oleh keindahan padang rumput yang bertabur bunga-bunga mentega. Ia begitu menyukainya! Sejak itu, ia senang melompat dari relnya dan bermain di tengah bunga-bunga, menari berputar-putar, mengejar kupu-kupu, atau bercakap-cakap dengan kodok hijau. Tapi, bukankah ia adalah sebuah kereta kecil? Dan kereta kecil harus berdiri di atas rel agar bisa menjadi Kereta Api Kilat! Nah, bagaimana nasib Peluit, bisakah ia mewujudkan mimpinya?

#Tootle merupakan salah satu #bukuanakklasik yang masuk dalam recommended resources-nya simplycharlottemason.com. Berkat petunjuk Mbak @laila.utari.ratna 😁, saya jadi terbiasa mengecek sebuah buku di bookfinder situs ini, semacam katalog #livingbooks versi si pemilik situs yang sudah menggeluti pendidikan rumah ala #CharlotteMason selama empat dekade.

Saya beruntung sekali mendapat terjemahan buku anak klasik ini dari @prelovedbooks.by67 (terima kasih banyak, Mbak ❤️). Si Peluit adalah sebuah buku lawas terbitan tahun 1978. Ceritanya menarik, meski saya tak terlalu menyukai penyelesaian ‘konfliknya’.
ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ
Yang lebih menarik justru penerimaan para pembaca terhadap buku ini. Dikisahkan, ulah Si Peluit akhirnya diketahui para pengurus sekolahnya secara diam-diam. Mereka pun bersepakat, mengajak seluruh penduduk dusun untuk mengembalikan Peluit ke atas rel. Nah, kubu pembaca yang pro menganggap kisah Peluit adalah contoh pentingnya disiplin dan kerja keras dalam menggapai cita-cita. Sementara yang kontra berpendapat buku ini terlalu mempromosikan conformity, memberi teladan buruk soal kontrol masyarakat yang mengekang tingkah laku, melenyapkan keunikan pribadi anak, dan memupus naluri alamiah anak untuk menjelajah dan mencintai keindahan alam.

Plenty of NaNoWriMo catching-up to do today but I never give up my ritual coffee and reading slot first thing. Have you read the classic When Marnie Was There by Joan G. Robinson? Her writing is so warm and yet elegant it puts me in a kind of trance.

New and enchanting background information on the most beloved children's characters of all time, had my kids hook, line, and sinker! Appealing and intriguing story, of a question many kids might not have thought of previously, or if they did, here's their answer. Where did the orginal reindeer for Santa's sleigh come from? This story answers that question, along with many other questions, that follow that thought process. Captivating storyline combined with gorgeous illustrations will have kids wanting to read and reread this story all season long. 🎅🦌 I am a holiday by holiday type person, so it's tricky for me to be checking out the Christmas books in advance for you. However, I also like to be prepared, so I'll post some ahead of the season for all you planners out there! 😉 My kids are already all about it though and are thrilled to have all the Christmas books out! We've read and reread this new Christmas classic several times already!

If you're looking for a new Christmas book to check out this year, this one has my stamp of approval and my family's too. 👍 Those allowed to bring Santa books to read into schools, this would make a delightful read for K and 1st grade holiday parties.

"Each of the little princesses had her own plot in the garden, where she might plant and sow at her pleasure. One chose hers to be made in the shape of a whale, another preferred the figure of a mermaid, but the youngest had hers quite round like the sun, and planted in it only those flowers that were red, as the sun seemed to her. She was certainly a singular child, very quiet and thoughtful."

I first read this story AFTER seeing the movie as a young child. Let me tell you, the ending was a bit of a shocker to wee Diane 😯.

🧸What books shaped your childhood?
.
🧸For #throwbookthursday I’m sharing some beloved books that I grew up with and now enjoy sharing with my 9 year-old!
.
🧸I loved all the crazy characters in Roald Dahl books... the Witches were so creepy and so memorable! .
🧸Pippi Longstocking was the first strong headed girl with superpowers. I just loved her quirkiness! .
🧸Anne of Green Gables is a classic and such a poignant story of finding a true home and sacrifices for family. .
🧸Finally, when I was a bit older I discovered the fantasy world of Chronicles of Narnia. Although, I don’t read much fantasy these days and probably should!

CHILDREN’S CLASSICS

At the start of the year I challenged myself to read six classics in 2019 and it reignited my love of classics and so far I’ve read more than one a month!
I’ve read some fantastic adult classics but I rediscovered my love of children’s classics and have gathered quite the collection!
I adore the V&A editions particularly but the regular Puffin hardbacks are also beautiful and it’s nice to have a burst of colour on my shelves!
Little Women and Goodnight Mister Tom are currently tied for first place but I also have grand plans to read A Christmas Carol on Christmas Eve!
Have you read any of these?
Do you have a favourite classic? 📚

Almost everyone knows Little Women, but Louisa May Alcott wrote many other novels, including my guest Autumn Krause's favorite An Old-Fashioned Girl. We discuss saving books for the future, getting philosophical as a teenager, and how a gentle book is sometimes just what we need for emotional comfort. Autumn also chats with me about her new novel A Dress for the Wicked.

Wednesday 13th November:
In accordance with Dickens, Einstein, G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis and many other great thinkers, fairytales are beloved in our home. Often filled with deep truths about ethics and morality, about culture, even the human condition in general, they ignite our imagination, touch our hearts and affect our consciousness - all through the beautiful medium of magical story. We are just beginning to read Barbara Newhall Follett's sublime, if somewhat melancholic, fable, elegantly introduced and illustrated by Jackie Morris. It was originally published in the 1920s, the work of a twelve year old home educated child, and quickly became a bestseller. Yet I had never heard of the story of little Eepersip who yearns to live a wild existence away from the constraints of modern life, at one with the natural world, until this republication.

Making a start on Christmas! .
.
I’ve been collecting books for my son for the last couple of months so that we could do a ‘book advent’ this year. I really don’t like the chocolaty plastic rubbish you buy in the shops so I’ve tried to be a bit more inventive.
Yes this has obviously cost more, but all these books are second hand, from charity shops or car boot sales and up until now I’ve only spent £6. I’ve still some more to get but I’m hoping to not spend more than £8 in total.
From my point of view this is money well spent. My son is like me and a true #bookworm so I know they will be well received.
I’m in the process of making number tags for each book out of scraps of cardboard and left over ribbon. Here’s hoping I get it all finished before December arrives!! .
.

Anyone else doing home made advent this year?

🤔WHICH DO YOU PREFER?🤔...
.
Two of Hugh's favourite books right now are the classics 'Dear Zoo' by #rodcampbell and 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' by #michaelrosen and #helenoxenbury . Both are narrated from a human perspective, both feature animals... But what if our favourite bear hunt book was told from the bears point of view? Or if the sequel to 'Dear Zoo' was a sequence of letters written from the animals, to a possibly slightly irresponsible pet owner?🐯🦒🐘😉 Typically, children's books are either written with a personified animal as the main character, or a child character whom small children can relate to. Yesterday, as I was penning some ideas for a new story for very young readers in @hertscoffeelab , I couldn't help but wonder, which would you prefer?

ANIMAL OR HUMAN? Who makes the best protagonist? Which stories do your children love most?

My four year old daughter has only recently discovered Winnie the Pooh and his friends and she’s in love! Join Christopher Robin and his favourite Hundred Acre Woods friends in this beautifully illustrated book.

This hand picked collection of iconic original stories includes tales from everyone’s favourite bear, the notoriously bouncy Tiger, Eeyore the gloomiest donkey and Piglet, the kindest and smallest of them all. 🌲💫📚 #winniethepooh #hundredacrewood #christopherrobin #classicchildrensbooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsbooks #raisingreaders

By the way, interesting fact... did you know there were four kids in the original book? There is a set of twins that are younger than Jane and Michael (John and Barbara)🌂☂️💨

A HOLE IS TO DIG & OPEN HOUSE FOR BUTTERFLIES, Ruth Krauss & Maurice Sendak, 1952 & 1960

A face is so you can make faces, dogs are to kiss people, a hole is to dig... This is a whole book (or really two books rolled into one!) of kid-friendly definitions to make sense of the world around you.

Ruth Krauss understands that the best bits of absurdism must be both very funny and very true. This little book swings wildly between the bizarre (“dogdog is a good word to know in case you see a dog and you it in a looking glass too”), dry humor (“a baby is a very convenient thing to be,”), and pure poignancy (“everybody should be quiet near a little stream and listen”). Honestly you must experience this book to truly understand it, but I promise once you finish you’ll want to start at the beginning and read it again.

This one only loses half a point because there is a yikes allusion to an “Indian hat,” and because I don’t love Sendak’s illustrations as much as everyone else in the world.

4.5/5⭐️
