Big Questions from Little People

Little People ask some very Big Questions!

Here’s a wonderful new book, in aid of the NSPCC. For each book sold a minimum of 67% of net royalty income is donated to the NSPCC.

It’s a delightful compilation of over 100 Big Questions from children aged 5 to 12 years old with answers to these challenging questions by some very Big People. Brilliant!

Compiled by Gemma Elwin Harris this excellent book provides answers to some of life’s big questions.

The answers come from renowned experts such as Sir David Attenborough, Bear Grylls, Dr Richard Dawkins, Kate Humble and Dame Jacqueline Wilson to name a few.

Every parent should have a copy of this book.

These questions are going to pop up and if you didn’t already know the answer to your child’s inquisitive question, you now can!

Every answer to every question is written simply and concisely, making it a joy to explain to your children.

Some of my favourite Big Questions from the book –

  • Can a bee sting a bee?
  • How are dreams made?
  • Why is the sky blue?
  • Why is the sea salty?
  • How do you fall in love?

Riverford Dairy Produce

| August 7, 2012

We’ve been lucky enough to sample some of Riverford’s amazing dairy produce.

The selection of Riverford’s organic whole milk, semi skimmed milk and skimmed milk was delicious.

We enjoyed it fresh in the morning on our museli with a side of hot milky coffee and in the afternoon with a cup of English Breakfast tea.

At only 99p per litre Riverford organic milk is great value and healthy for the whole family.

Indulgently we consumed the Riverford clotted cream with scones and organic raspberry jam. We could have been in Devon, it was like stepping into another world…

The whole yoghurt and fat-free yoghurt tasted delicious with a fresh fruit salad and I enjoyed it as a quick and convenient snack during the day with a sprinkling of sunflower seeds. Our baby loved the creamy whole yoghurt after her dinner in the evening, full of goodness and flavour.

The Riverford clotted cream fudge was, dare I say more! Fantastic as a gift or as an indulgent treat for oneself.

Riverford butter is deliciously creamy and it stayed semi-soft in the fridge, making it wonderfully convenient for spreading straight on to fresh bread or toast. We enjoyed it on crusty fresh bread with Leek and Potato Soup and used it in cooking to bring out the full flavour of vegetables.

Riverford work with small-scale producers who care about their animals. They won the RSPCA Good Business Awards 2011. Find out more about Riverford animal welfare and don’t miss the incredible video of their cows bounding into the field at the beginning of Spring.

Stuck On You Personalised Teddy Bear

| August 5, 2012

Imogen loved her Teddy Bear from the day it arrived

Stuck On You kindly asked if we would like to review one of their personalised products.

After looking at the adorable range of gifts for babies and children we decided on the Personalised Teddy Bear for Imogen. She adores teddy bears and to have one with her name on makes it extra special!

My husband and I had great fun choosing the Teddy Bear and personalising it for Imogen. We selected the Girl Teddy Bear with Imogen’s name written in Red with a Freestyle font.

Imogen’s Personalised Teddy Bear wears a cute white t-shirt with her name across the front and a linen skirt.

Imogen loves the softness of this Teddy Bear and enjoys snuggling up with her at story time.

The Teddy Bear is light in weight so Imogen can easily transport her around the house, push her in her toy buggy and take her out for adventures in the park.

Measuring approximately 40 cm in height this Teddy Bear is a wonderful size for babies, toddlers and children alike.
