It sometimes seems to me that the book will soon become a vintage design piece. Recently we have seen wallpapers designed to look like bookcases (crazy,does nobody own actual bookcases anymore) and most people have kindles rather than actual books, anyway I digress.
I have just spent a week with my 7-year-old who has just discovered the joy of reading ye olde fashioned books.I have been reminded that how easy and wonderful it is to lose yourself in a good story.
So next time you reach for the electronic tablet babysitter…forget angry birds and think more BFG or Famous Five you may be pleasantly surprised how easy it is for a child of reading age to become a bookworm. Books don’t need charging,dry out easily without the need for a bag of rice if something is split on them and won’t break the bank.
Books that we love at the moment.
Mr Stink – David Wallams
Malory Towers- the box set.- Enid Blyton
The Magic Faraway Tree- Enid Blyton
Any of the famous five.. they are always fantastic
50 Shades – well just don’t bother!!
To encourage reading it’s also nice to make a special place at home for your little one to read, it doesn’t have to be difficult – a few comfortable floor cushions, a big squishy bean bag chair, or a teepee. Its easy to instantly create a fun space for fairy tales, adventure stories, and novels. A few pics here may inspire you…..
The book wallpaper can be found at one of my favourite online shops http://www.rocketstgeorge.co.uk well worth a look for design inspiration. Failing that Charity shops are full of books all looking to be adopted !!
Anyway happy reading all…
