What a wonderful blog you have created, as a mother of five and three of those under five, I encourage as much imaginative (mostly Outdoor) play as I can! You have some great ideas and resources here... A book I would recommend is 'The little Red Hen" it is part of The little Golden Books collection. A favourite in our house and teaches the children some valuable lessons about producing your own food, sharing the work load and being rewarded for your efforts!
I'm sure you would know of it, you can read the story here on my blog! :)

These are lovely. My son andi read books every day. If you check back with Monday Listicles, a few before you, at number 42 is a list written by one of the most popular children's book authors Iza Trapani. Wonderful to read. Her perspective on why she writes for children...
