Koalas for your Saturday 💙 ——-
This threatened animal is pretty close to home - living in South Eastern Queensland - koalas are increasingly under threat here due to so much housing development clearing away their habitats and food source 😢 there are some great organisations working to keep them healthy and safe, but their population is sadly still on the decline 😓

I saw this on a couple of Best Of 2018 lists decided to pick it up as a February read. The main character Alice is a black woman who is bisexual and asexual. Just one example of the awesome diversity in this book. Alice is just the sweetest and likable character ever. I loved this book for its representation and how it showed Alice as this real loving person who simply wants to find someone who loved her for herself - without expecting her to change for them.
.
However, I felt the conclusion of the story was disappointing especially given how Alice struggled with relationships when it came to the issue of sex. I’m being vague on purpose, but I have my review up on Goodreads if you want to know in more detail why I was disappointed. Overall, I gave it 3 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
.
P.S. I don’t normally like real people on my book covers, but isn’t this one beautiful? 💜

Another illustration from my new book-in-progress, The Girl Who Was Born with Glue in Her Brain, an illustrated picture book that's sort of a memoir about anxiety, for older kids. It will be available September 2019. This illustration got kind of cropped off but I think you can get the gist. It’s supposed to be how younger selves share the negative thoughts with older selves like the game of telephone. #illustratorsofinstagram #illustratedmemoir #childrensbooks #kidlit #kidbooks #parenting #motherhood #picturebooksforbigkids #childrensillustrations #picturebooks #spirituality #illustrationsforkids #childrensbooks #childrensbooksforadults #healing #innerchildhealing #illustratedmemoir #memoir #guidancecounselor #schoolpsychologist #glue #brain #stuck #womencreating #paradigmshift #parenting #motherhood #picturebooksofinstagram #picturebooksforbigkids #anxiety #depression #anxietyinkids #negativethoughts

Do you pray over your children and family? If so, this is a definite must add to your collection. It’s SO beautifully written and is the perfect alternative for the book Oh, The Places You’ll Go...for praying families.

It’s filled with all the hopes and dreams I have for my children as I raise them to be responsible adults. “When you break from your shell to stand up for yourself and I realize you didn’t ask for my help. I’ll pray and I’ll cheer. I’ll probably shed a tear. And hope that you know, if you need me, I’m here.” This is the type of book you’ll want to curl up and read with your kids at bedtime, when they’ve had a bad day or whenever you want to reaffirm your unconditional love for them. It’s a treasure, for sure! Perfect for Easter, birthday, baby shower, Christening or graduation gift giving. Publishes February 19th by @matthewpaulturner. #wheniprayforyou #matthewpaulturner #whengodmadeyou #whengodmadelight #gifted #magicofstorytelling

This interactive read based on a familiar rhyme, Sleeping Bunnies, has been very popular with my youngest poppet. She absolutely loves singing and completing the actions for Sleeping Bunnies.
The book has all the spring feels, perhaps a little early in sharing but today the weather was so spring like I just couldn’t resist.
The book adapts the original rhyme by including other animals in the song also. It’s fun, has lift the flaps, and beautiful illustrations which brings the familiar rhyme to life, what more could a younger reader need?
The book would be a great addition to a learning setting and perhaps a lovely gift for a spring/Easter basket. To see more of the book head to my blog by clicking the link in my bio. .

““Misery loves company,” Mama says to James Otis. It’s been a rough couple of months for them, but Mama says as long as they have their health and strength, they’re blessed. One Sunday before Valentine’s Day, Reverend Dennis makes an announcement during the service– the Temples have lost everything in a fire, and the church is collecting anything that might be useful to them. James thinks hard about what he can add to the Temple’s “love box,” but what does he have worth giving?” https://blackbabybooks.com/product/what-is-given-from-the-heart/

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 What beautiful inspirational childrens' books!

The illustrations are stunning and the 13 women in each book are such strong role models of quietly persisting through the barriers they had in front of them.

I know when I have children these books will be part of our library and I will encourage any child needing a push to keep going in the face of a challenge to read these books!

In 1946, 11-year-old Langston and his father leave rural Alabama for Chicago’s brown belt during the Great Migration. In Chicago Langston finds his life has completely changed but takes comfort in his local library and discovering the poetry of Langston Hughes.
A perfect chapter book to share for #BlackHistoryMonth.

This beautiful book from @harperkid will be available so soon but I couldn’t help sharing it with you now 😍 you know we love birds in this fam. Each page inside “Bird Watch” by @christiematheson is set up like a seek and find which my girls LOVE. Pointing out and learning about each bird is so fun. And the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous. Can’t get enough! I also created a little free owl directed drawing page to go along with this sweet book and it’s up on the blog now. If you or your little’s try drawing it please send me a pic so I can share!! #childrensbooks #watercolorillustrations #birdwatch #seekandfind #beautifulbirds #childrensbookreviews #harpercollins #harperkids #bemybookentine #directeddrawing #directeddraw #preschoolprojects #readalouds #bookreviewers #kidlit #picturebookillustration
I’m not instinctively sporty but my ‘willing to give it a go’ attitude carried me through sports day year after year. Truth be told, I don’t miss it! Waiting for hours on end, watching and cheering on the more athletically gifted, sometimes in the pouring rain (because British summers often comprise of thunder storms and muddy fields) is somewhat a rite of passage. Love it or loathe it, it’s Sports Day in Orchard Pie!

SHARPY, the cactus-loving collared peccary🌵.
Did you know that collared peccary is the only wild, native, piglike animal found in the United States?
Closely resembling the wild #pig ( boar🐗), the collared peccary has a smaller body and thinner legs.

DIY INSTRUMENTS! We made some instruments from stuff I had on hand and we read and sang some books that have "love" as a theme. They love music and dancing in general, and really love books that have little songs. The songs can be found on line (link in profile) and I will also post the link to the instrument inspiration and instructions later on today ☺ Today's theme for #february_play was "love songs"... So that is what inspired our fun today!

#authorlifemonth2019 Day 15 - writing music. I usually like to write in the quiet of the very early morning, but when I do listen to music it’s often instrumental movie soundtracks or music related to something I’m researching. I find lyrics distracting. Any playlists or soundtracks fellow writers would recommend?

I’m hanging out in my sewing room today, but I had to show you a peek of my favorite new title! Fairy Tales for Little Children is gorgeous! It’s a hardback combined volume (multiple stories in one binding) and all my girls just LOVE it. If you didn’t know, I love fairy tales and this beautiful collection has to be one of my favorite Fairy Tale collections. Beautiful illustrations and perfect retellings for young readers, make this one a must have! (My 1st grader took it to school the last two days - I couldn’t find it anywhere - and when I found it in her backpack she said, well I couldn’t put it down and I love the pictures!) 🥰 Check out my stories for a peek inside!✨✨✨ ⭐️✨✨✨⭐️✨✨✨⭐️✨✨✨⭐️✨✨✨⭐️✨✨✨

Did you know that Stone Soup has a blog that we update every week? Here's part of a blog we posted from young writer Keshav, entitled "Forts of Play": .
"I’ve been building forts all my childhood, and I still do. I build my forts almost always in corners because every corner in my house has a chair, a soft thing or a window for light. One kind of fort I make is the bedsheet-supported-by-pillow fort. Other times, I find spaces and just build on them. Like the time I found a bush with an entrance and a great climbing spot. I added a trapdoor (using a branch that can bend and won’t crack with weight on it), and a place to store plants (example, reeds). This spot is one of my favorites to still visit, behind a tree in the frontyard of my home."

Barabara Joosse’s Lulu and Rocky are enthusiastic tour guides through some of Milwaukee’s hot spots that offer sightseeing, exercise, music, inspiration, and yummy treats. Sprinkled with a few old-fashioned phrases and references to new-fangled technology, the story is as warm, friendly, and fast-paced as any enjoyable trip should be. Lulu’s observations highlight kid-favorite fun and will entice in readers a desire to discover not only Milwaukee but their own nearby cities as well.

Renée Graef’s adorable fox cousins will charm children as they introduce kids to Milwaukee. From the letter that Aunt Fancy sends to the cutaway image of a ferry full of excited travelers to realistic depictions of the city center, lake front, and museums, readers will enjoy lingering over the pages to take in all the details. Humorous additions—as well as Norman’s “wooly bear caterpillar” eyebrows—will also keep kids giggling as they take this enchanting tour-in-a-book.

This first book in a new series—the Our City Adventures—will excite children to learn more about areas around the country and what makes them unique. An engaging introduction for young explorers or armchair travelers as well as an accessible resource for teachers. Lulu and Rocky in Milwaukee would be just the ticket to add to home, classroom, and public library bookshelves.

Ages 5 – 8
