World Book Day

World Book Day

It's World Book Day! I remember getting a book token to mark the very first one, many years ago - you can read more about that in my WBD post from last year. Marianna is still too young for the all singing, all dancing event it has become, but we did get to commemorate WBD 2016 in a very special way...

You can read or download the full book HERE and HERE.

Adjustamatic Adjustable Beds contacted me and asked if I'd like to be involved with a bloggers' ebook project. Each contributor wrote a little bit about their child's favourite #BedtimeStories, which was then compiled into a gorgeous little ebook with the most adorable illustrations.

Reading with your children is so important - not just for the educational benefits, but for the quality time you get to spend together and the memories you create. Our choice was Five Little Kittens by A.J. Macgregor and W. Perring, part of the Ladybird 401 (animal rhymes) series. How cute is our page:

You can read or download the full book HERE and HERE.

Don't forget to share your own favourite #BedtimeStories with Adjustamatic on Facebook or @AdjustableBedUK on Twitter!

  4. I used to love World Book Day in school! I remember dressing up as my favourite characters and getting so excited for my book token! It's crazy to think how much technology has changed because eBooks weren't a thing back then. Great post!

  7. I'm so happy my daughters both enjoy reading. My son is 4 so he can't read yet and he's not overly interested in books at the moment. Each child is different, so I'll imagine he'll get more into it. #FabFridayPost

    1. My daughter's favourite thing about it is turning the pages at the moment, she doesn't much like waiting for me to do the actual reading!

  12. That's a fab way of celebrating this day - I do like to see the kids dressed up on my FB page, but can't remember even celebrating it let alone dressing up as a kid myself! And that page is just gorgeous - thanks for linking up to #pocolo x
