We started reading to my youngest son when he just days old - just like we did with our other two. But, honestly, it wasn’t a very picturesque reading experience. He didn’t want anything to do with books or reading until he was about a year old.⠀

We NEVER forced him to read - but we always surrounded him by books, read to him for as long as he would tolerate it and would often just keep reading after he crawled or walked away. ⠀

Then one day...something clicked! ⠀

We figured out he was willing to sit and read with us - but he was very particular about which books. And still to this day he has about 5 books that he absolutely loves and will listen to again and again.⠀

Reading aloud is all about consistency, timing and finding the right books. If you feel like your baby or kid just doesn’t like reading - do not give up! You could be one book away from something clicking and when that happens - it’s magic!⠀

When did you start reading to your kids?⠀

Tonight’s #WhereIsWoblin is adorable!

Woblin is in our favourite seaside town, Margate, with our youngest reader so far, the awwww-inspiring Kiara Coombe aged 10 months 😍
Woblin was bought for Kiara by Nanny & Grandad at our book launch at @elsewheremarg8 (side note: cannot believe that was a month ago already! 😱). It looks as though Kiara is enjoying the bright and beautiful illustrations by the awesome @alexfosterillustration . How lovely to think Kiara will be growing up with Woblin. We are sure they will be the best of friends 💚

Love it! Please keep them coming, you Dreamy people! 💚🤩💚🤩💚🤩💚 #childrensbooks #picturebook #poetry #rhyming #illustrated #illustrations #art #forkids #reading #creating #kidslit #kindness #bravery #friendship #selflove #kids #family #margate #bookstagram #book #babies #booksforkids #creative #babiesofinstagram #indiebooks #indiebookstore

Yak and Dove by Kyo Maclear illustrated by Esmé Shapiro

This book follows the story of two friends who could not be any more different. The book is split into 3 chapters, each full of its own humor and sweetness. I’m always a sucker for unlikely friendship tales. That plus the absolutely beautiful illustrations in this book make this another household favorite.

We've been working a lot on place value in math and different types of charts in science, so when I found storybooks on these subjects I couldn't resist.

image: view into my folder, inspiration from our kids
New Episode 5: Characters

I started with painting all the characters, because I enjoy painting all animals and humans and they are my skill strength. Staring at an empty page is intimidating (writing or painting) and it's hard to start, so starting with your strength definitely makes it easier. Also, since I separated my paintings into elements, I was able to do all the characters at once. A typical view of my folder with the painted characters was a ton of single pictures. Most of the kids I painted from imagination, but a three of them are inspired by mine and Natalie's daughters. I just love the fact that they are now in this book (swipe to see)

Another tip I learned from a hand full of illustrators: Start with the drawings in the middle of the book and then work your way to the outer pages. When I do my first paintings I am  a bit stiff and nervous and you can see it in the painting. From the first painting until the last I get more confident and even better at my skill. The art improves and I learn a lot, and I want the good pictures to be distributed through the book.

Follow me the next weeks to read the whole process. Also make sure to check out @pleasedontcrylullaby and her webpage (link in her bio) where you can directly buy your copy of Please don't cry. Shipping internationally. Big thanks to @littlestepspublishing for the amazing work they did in bringing us together and print the book in high quality.

What a gem! This is a story about a little girl and her love for Santa. Each year she writes him a letter and each year he writes back. One year she addresses the letter to her Mom instead of Santa. In her letter the little girl asks if her mom is Santa. The mom’s answer is heartwarming. In fact, it brought tears to my eyes.
My own two children are believers in Santa, but I know the day is coming when I will need to share with them the spirit of Santa. This book is the perfect medium! I am hoping the book can sit upon my shelf, unread, for another year or two. However, when the time comes I am ready! Thank you @readaloudrevival for sharing this gem with me! #christmasbooks #raisingreaders #picturebook #kidslit #spiritofsanta #bookstagram

🎉Kazoo Book Club🎉
When Sophie Gets Angry—Really, Really Angry, by Molly Bang.
It’s sister’s turn with gorilla, and Sophie is not happy about it. To add injury to insult, she falls over the toy truck in the struggle. Then—you guessed it—Sophie gets angry—really, really angry. “She kicks. She screams. She wants to smash the world to smithereens.” When it becomes too much, when Sophie is “a volcano, ready to explode”, she runs outside. She runs until she can’t run anymore. She cries. She climbs a tree. She lets the “wide world comfort her”. Then she comes home. There are no recriminations. Her family is happy to see her. They are happy she is happy.
What we love about this book is its approach to anger itself. We’re programmed to regard anger as a wholly negative thing, something to be squelched or breathed through. But, here, Bang allows Sophie to feel what she wants to feel, and she puts the emphasis of the story on how Sophie knows how to heal her own heart.
This is a valuable, useful lesson, and one taught naturally, without preaching. The illustrations are evocative without being scary. This is a picture book we still read to our 7-yr-olds, because there are some lessons we have to keep learning.

This illustration was based off my original intaglio piece, ‘The Raven.’ It was carved for a print-making class I took while I was in Alaska. Revisiting it made me realize how important it is to move past your comfort zone.
One of my first art teachers, Ms. Fritz would say that if you could feel yourself become overwhelmed in your art, you are working through something new. And it’s a word of wisdom I take to heart, I think we have a perception that art should just blossom from inside you, that if you are meant to make beautiful works, you are born with it, and it just IS. But I don’t think that’s the case, necessarily, it’s the work that moves you forward, gives you a better understanding of colors, shapes, bodies, shadows and highlights, that helps your art become something special and refined. So I guess what I am saying that if it’s from a school assignment or your own drive, make sure you set goals that are lofty, overwhelming and scary, whether in an art piece, your hobby, life or business. Do the uncomfortable things.

"How Santa Gets All the Chimneys" 📚🎄🌆🎅
It’s the night before Christmas. A boy dreams of catching Santa. No, it's not a silly dream. He is prepared! He mastered all the tricks to stay awake. He even built a secret passage to move quickly in pursuit of Santa!

Then, he wakes up to a sudden noise. He feels everything in his house seems a bit peculiar. Something is definitely going wrong! He has to fix whatever it is before it ruins Christmas!

A laugh-out-loud, tongue-tickling read aloud, Laurie Keller’s Potato Pants! is silliness at its best with lots of heart to boot. Keller’s clever mix of narration and dialogue draw kids into the mind of Potato as he bounces from the excitement of possibly getting stripey pants to the fear of facing his nemesis to the disappointment of missing the sale to plucking up the courage to forgive and apologize to Eggplant. Speech bubbles bring these dapper spuds to life as they negotiate the racks at Lance Vance’s Fancy Pants Store (adult readers should be prepared to read that name over and over!). Keller’s bright, mixed-media (including potato stamps) illustrations are full of action, dynamic perspectives, and a community of potatoes and yams as delightfully bumpy, lumpy, and unique as those seen at any grocery store or farmers market. Kids will love picking out their own favorite potato pants from Tubérto’s fabulous collection, and you can bet they’ll jump up to do the Po-bot dance too.

Fun for all, Potato Pants! will inspire many tuberific story times at home, in the classroom, and at public and school libraries.

The museum is our happy place, but it was not always this way. Before CJ started to really get in to art, she was bored by the quietness of it all. “Anna at the Art Museum” by Hazel Hutchins is a great book to introduce to children before their first museum visit so they can get an understanding of what to expect •

We don't have that many hardback books in our collection, but the few that we do have are so dear to me.

When I found this one at the sale yesterday, I knew I was going home with it because I've been drooling over it in the bookstores for months but it's just out of my budget. It's ridiculous that I picked it up for R100 at the @warehousebooksale_bb 🙌 I can't stop looking at it, I promise it's that beautiful😍

Being someone that has always been interested in STEM, it's important to me to get my boy curious about the world we live in. In We Are Here, Oliver Jeffers explores the solar system and planet Earth in a manner that encourages the reader to start the conversation.

With little doodles and notes all over the place, he shares just enough to help the reader take it further and add their own ideas to bring his beautifully written guide to life.

This is one that can be read over and over, with something new to discover each time - a truly special book for young minds!
