Tigerlilly Quinn: We like to read

We like to read


I know it's been a little while since I've done of these posts! But we are still reading and still love it too. A lovely local to us shop called Jack and Jill Toyshop sent Wilf and I these books which gave me the push I needed to post again, thanks guys!

Colours

We really loved this design led book. Each double page spread has a layer of acetate between the pages leading to some pretty nifty results when you flip it. Wait, this will explain it better...



neat hur?

The second book was one for parents more than kiddos but it certainly made me smile.
H is for Hummus


Tom says this book is all about me ;)
O is for Ocado, Olives and Osteopathy..


F is for Farrow and Ball..


Can any of you relate?

At least those words might make some sense to the kids - when I visited my daughter's school for the first time they had a poster up with "V is for VHS". How on earth was my 5 year old supposed to know what a VHS was?
