Reviews Round-up: Spring is in the air!

reviewsSpring is in the air, and I cannot wait to share a few very interesting reviews with you. This time I have decided to check out what bloggers like to read. I have been a bit naughty, and have realized I haven’t reviewed any books for ages, but have been sent a few Easter themed books, so check out my blog for the reviews soon. This doesn’t mean I don’t read books with my children, we do all the time, but I also have to admit I haven’t read a book just for me and my pleasure for ages. There is one book I would really love to read, Discovery at Rosehill, as it is from a fellow blogger Crystal Jigsaw, and also my twitter friend. Have you read it yet?

As you might have realised I review loads of stuff, but couldn’t wait to share my latest review on BabyBjorn Travel Light Cot. I have been amazed at how brilliant this product is. It is definitely the best travel cot I have seen or tested, and trust me, I have seen a few!

As promised, here are some fabulous book reviews, enjoy and let me know if you read any of them what you thought of them too! By the way, today I have decided to use all authors’ own words to tempt you to read their reviews!

Redpeffer’s Blog – The Jennings books: “It’s just so enjoyable to read. Really genuinely funny. I think it’s a real contrast to many of today’s books in that its focus is simply on two boys negotiating their way through school life with loads of mishaps along the way.” – Oliver: “The story is about a little boy called Oliver who enjoys in his own solitude. His friends are his puppets and stuffed toys. Oliver is different. Straight away I connected with the character as my children are different and play very much in their own world due to be autistic.”

Daria Anne – Sweet William: “It’s also a stark reminder that in the blink of an eye, everything can come crashing down around you. One day, you might wake up to count yourself among the homeless after years of enjoying the fruits of your labor, surrounded by the ones you love.”

Being A Mummy – Brilliant Spring Books for kids:” one of the things which we found when trying to find books is that it’s actually not all that easy to find fiction books with a Spring related theme. There are loads of Autumn and Winter ones but appropriate Spring ones are a bit thin on the ground”

Eljae – Wind in the Willows: “When your child is a really confident reader it can be hard to find books that are engaging and interesting without seeming too babyish. This is why classics are great – you’ve got a story that’s stood the test of time, language that is old-fashioned enough to be fairly challenging and a story that’s suitable for a wide age range.”

Honestmum – Tamara’s Small and the Monster’s Ball: “A funny story of a small, frightened girl who is captured from her bed by a monsterly neighbour to attend a monster’s ball (with break dancing ware wolves and witches in pointy hats), is witty and delightful if a little frightful (for me at least-but I’m a massive WIMP and still sleep with some light streaming in my room but don’t tell anyone) and the kid wasn’t scared at all!

Comfort Bites – The Madhouse Cookbook by Jo Pratt: “Well, in this book, she talks about how she used to spend hours planning and cooking for elaborate dinner parties, sourcing rare ingredients and the like. Since she had children, she’s had to come up with a repertoire of quick, simple and child-friendly meals that they can all enjoy together.”

I hope you have enjoyed this Britmums Reviews Round-up, and if you would like me to read your review and maybe mention it in the next one, why don’t you add your link below, email me or tweet me at @Kahanka.
