Amelia has such a lovely relationship with books and has always loved nothing more than sitting down for a good story. Some of Amelia’s favourites are Julia Donaldson books and we have built up quite the collection of them.
At the moment Amelia is really into looking at books by herself and “reading” to me, just explaining what’s going happening on each page and reciting some of the lines that she’s remembered since hearing the stories so many times. The Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler books are full of rhyming,captivating stories and wonderful illustrations to help tell the story. Amelia’s favourite started with The Gruffalo and we soon got the Gruffalo’s child and began our collection, I mean who doesn’t love The Gruffalo!!
Macmillan Publishers have released 8 of the Julia Donaldson books with fresh skins making them looking super shiny and the perfect new collection to add to your little ones library. They have also teamed with our other favourites Great Little Trading Co who have the ultimate storage solutions and who help to make more space in your house. One of the newly released books is A Squash and a Squeeze about making a house feel bigger and that is exactly what GLTC storage does; if your house is a squash and a squeeze, you just need better storage.
The combination of books and Great Little Trading Co is perfect as they have an extensive range of book storage solutions. As the weather is getting nicer Amelia is loving being in the garden and it’s nice to be able to have some stories outside. So Sprinkles blanket in hand Amelia filled up her Miss Cat Storage Cart and took it out into the garden.
The Miss Cat Storage Cart is perfect for children as to them it’s a something fun that they can pull around but to me it’s a great place to put extra books. It also makes tidying up nice and easy as it’s wheeled from place to place.
When she wasn’t running around the garden with her cart which is so cute and will be useful for all sorts of things not just books she was loving being able to sit down and enjoy the books outside. Even the dog came over for a story and a lie down on the Sprinkles blanket. It is the perfect way to enjoy some outdoors time that doesn’t involve too much running around, a great way to distract Amelia and make her have some down time without realising.
I have a full set of these 8 books from Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler to give to a lucky reader. The set includes; The Gruffalo, The Gruffalo’s Child, Room on the Broom, The Snail and the Whale, The Smartest Giant in Town, Monkey Puzzle, Charlie Cook’s Favourite Book, and A Squash and a Squeeze.
