I read this over a few days with my children and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a wonderful magical and adventurous fast tale with great characters to be met along the way. As a fan of Irish mythology, this also grabbed my attention learning more about Bulgarian and Slavic myths. This will appeal Continue reading

Blogger Recognition Award is a positive and nice time to see the interaction of others and who are taking the time to read each other’s blogs and connecting. The internet world is such a vast place and is growing daily and therefore it is easy to get lost among it. I was truly honoured to have received an email from Magicmindz informing me that they have put my blog down as one of the nominations. This is a great blog I have been following for a while now as it covers a range of topics including parenting, relationships, creativity and I would recommend to pop over and see for yourself.
How did I get into blogging? Continue reading
For the Generation Z Children
Mother suffers regret,
The day she bought the tablet.
She thought her son,
Would think it be fun,
But that was to be seen yet.
Mother was sad that day,

The Generation Z or the Post Millennials of today, children born from the early 2000, are also sometimes called the Screeners. They have a surprising aptitude for technology and a hand full of prying fingers that are hard to ignore – these kids are the future.

The practice of creative expression has numerous benefits of your child. It first of all can help build and develop the fine Continue reading

Charlie and the cheesemonster by Justin CH Birch
I’ve very fond memories of my mother reading and telling stories to me at night when I was a child. She had the ‘gift of the gab’ as we say in Ireland. Now that I have my own children I can see the importance of reading to them. For me in the early stages, I found the little picture touch feel novelty books were great for helping my children with their sounds and senses. Reading to them was another way of them hearing your voice and sharing an experience together, and that for me created a nice little bond. Even if you have to point and say apple a 100 times it’s important. You’re the first voice they know and it’s a great way of communicating with them and teaching them to speak and express themselves.
As they got older the Continue reading
