Another slow reading month for me unfortunately. Pesky end of school things and mobile babies getting in the way of quiet relaxation!
Believe it or not, I’ve never read this despite loving the film.
End of the school year also means no school books to read at bedtime. I was planning a trip to the library when this children’s classic turned up courtesy of The Works*:
My seven year old got a mini Enid Blyton book with a McDonalds Happy Meal a few months ago and enjoyed reading it. I thought that she was a bit beyond The Wishing Chair et al and absolutely adores school so hopefully this will be perfect for the six weeks holidays. We have already had tears at the opening chapter when the mothers see the new girls off to boarding school though. Oops. I think we’ll be able to read a chapter per night between us.
*In exchange for an honest review of the book.
