As the end of the month is rolling round again, I’m sharing the books that have been favourite reads for each member of the Reading household in August.. Little Man – Dinosaur Roar (Paul & Henrietta Stickland) He loves this! It’s inspired his first birthday theme, and he now has …

Reading Eggs Review

I’d seen a few mentions of this Reading Eggs in magazines and on-line, so I decided to investigate further. I asked Twitter for a few opinions, and all came back in favour of it, and as they operate a 14 day free trial, I decided to give it a whirl. …
