Sleepless nights? You need The Baby Bedtime Book

Sleepless nights? You need The Baby Bedtime Book

We first met the lovely Fi, author of The Baby Bedtime Book: Say goodnight to sleepless nights, a year ago during a couple of blogging events and the Mad Blog Awards. We both agreed she was incredibly lovely and were excited when she asked if we would like to be some of the first to read her new book. Of course we couldn't refuse and coincidentally the book arrived in our inbox around the same time we decided to get our little man to self settle. Fi has a long history of looking…Read more

How to Win Friends and Influence People – YOC Bookclub

My Beano sack had already been removed from the loft so that we could start filling it with presents to take round to…Read more

One of my favourite chapters to read was 'A Toolbox of…Read more

Top That Publishing – Book Review

The lovely Top That Publishing sent us 3 books to read and review, many moons ago. We had great ambitions of reading them to Monkey and him loving them. But he wasn't really that responsive, so to give them a fair review we waited until he was able to hold concentration and react to our voices. The three books we were sent are called - Yappy, Happy, Dilly Dog - The Froobles, Little Jack Potato and the big surprise - Five Little Penguins.   The first book I looked at with Monkey was…Read more
