Once upon a time, there lived Cinderfella – a little boy, forever bossed around by his two older brothers, Gus and Gareth. “Turn up the TV! Shine our scooters!” the brothers cry. “Finish our homework!” But on the day of our story, Kayleigh, the town’s kick-fastic karate champion, is having a party, and Cinderfella is determined to dream big, dress fancy and DANCE. He’ll just need a little help along the way from his fairy dog-mother, Ruff – woof! I think we’re all familiar with the classic story Cinderella and over the years I have seen and read many re-tellings.
If you read our post yesterday about great gifts for 3 year olds you would have seen the Personalised Peppa Pig Party Book from Penwizard.

Erin turns 3 on 1st January and while I know that is some time away yet, it is right on top of Christmas so I have to find presents over the whole year to make sure it’s all sorted in time and also so we
Even before Erin was born books have been a big deal in our family. We try to make sure she gets to read (look at) a wide range of books and always has plenty available to her. Each month I’ll be writing about what books we’ve been reading with Erin and sometimes also posting a video! So, here’s what we’ve been reading this month: This month has been a bit of a strange one really because we haven’t done much reading at all. Being away on holiday for a third of the month hasn’t left us with much time. Erin

Here’s what the book is about A dragon with a short temper
Erin is such a big fan of reading. She might only be 2 but she probably has more books than I do now and I don’t see that changing any time soon. We are always on the look for new books, especially when there are certain issues Erin is having. We were recently sent Fergal is Fuming by Robert Starling from Andersen Press. Obviously, receiving the book for Erin was great but Anderson Press have done some fantastic marketing with this book, which has been shortlisted for the 2018 Waterstones Children’s Book Prize. Along with a copy of the book we received
On 22nd February I found out that Erin’s nursery would also be taking part in World Book Day. Yes, that’s 1 week before World Book Day. I’m pretty crap at things like this anyway but to have pretty much no notice and no creativity whatsoever was not a good thing at all. Erin’s school wanted to do traditional fairy tales so that really narrows down options. That day after I picked Erin up from nursery we headed to Sainsbury’s to see what we could get her to wear.

Storytime Saturday a weekly blog feature showcasing any new books we’ve been reading with Erin, reviewing picture books and talking about our monthly library haul! Basically, Storytime Saturday is all about books! This week we’re talking about King Baby by Kate Beaton (Walker Books) All hail King Baby! King Baby is gracious – bestowing smiles on his public, allowing tickles and hugs, and posing for photo after adorable photo. But this teeny tiny royal ruler also has many demands, and when his faithful subjects can’t quite keep up, King Baby must take matters into his own hands. King Baby is described as the
