12 Fab New Picture Books for Kids
You may have been wondering why it’s been a bit quiet on the blog over the Summer, and why there have not been any new book posts or videos. The reason is that we moved house (again, but just up the road this time) and our books were all packed up for most of the Summer, so I didn’t have any access to them to record new video footage. But as some of you may know, I’ve been working at the Edinburgh International Book Festival since May, and the Festival itself took place in August (did you see Oskar’s wee star moment?) We ended up spending quite a bit of time there, obviously when I was working but I only work part time so on my days off I took my kids along and we met lots of authors and attended some great events. And we took the Festival as an excuse (not that we really need one) to buy some more new books, so I’ve shared our favourite ones with you in my latest video. I hope you love them just as much as we do!
If you enjoyed the video, I’d be really grateful if you would subscribe to my channel. Thanks!

The book festival sounds like a great way to spend the summer. All those books. I thought I was a collector. You put me to shame lol!

Congrats on the move! How did it all go? Even moving up the road can be time consuming (we did this). Lovely list of books,, I’ll have to have a good rummage

Some great choices – we have a few but definitely just added some to the Christmas list! Our bookshelf is full but you can never have too many books haha. Sue Hendra is a strong favourite here.
I thought my little boy had every children’s book going, his bedroom is like a library!! Do you know what though, we haven’t read a single one of these! What makes me a me sounds like the type of question my five year old would ask!xx
We are looking for new books. Will get some of these, thank you.
I think my nephew would definitely love all of these, need to check out the ones I am not familiar with.
