great Autumn books for kids

8th Nov 2018


I love reading and I love books.

When i was an LSA in my mums school one of my jobs was to do reading with the kids at a tiny table with tiny chairs outside the classroom in the atrium and i loved it. As someone who is dyslexia and struggled with reading as a kid it really helped me gain confidence.

One of things i was most excited about when i found out i was having Neive was reading to her when she was a baby, when she was older and could pick her own books like she does now and I am so excited about reading Harry Potter to her when she is older that we have a rule she cant watch the films until i have.

These are some of the books i have been reading too and looking at with Neive and my Little Explorers forest school groups this season.
