I saw Abigail at the Digital Parents Conference! She’s awesome!

My favourite book as a child was “Look out Sally!” about a little kitten that gets lost on a farm. I used to carry it around with me apparently. My Mum kept it for me and now Lily loves it and yells out “kitty” whenever she sees Sally. :)

How adorable is that bunny… I know a certain someone who is turning 1 soon that needs a namesake bunny ;)

My favourite book as a child was the “Magic Far Away Tree”. I loved all the strange lands the children visited at the top of the tree and the magical folk that lived in the tree. I would spend my days up a tree pretending I was visiting Moon Face and Silky. My sisters and I would make up our own magical lands to visit and spent hours practicing eating upside down like poor Jo did.

Victoria Plum and her Woodland Friends, and, Fluff Puff farm. I just love these books and used to read them over and over again, they were my favourite stories and had the best illustrations. In fact I still own them and have them on my bookshelf for my nieces to enjoy.

I’ve seen the Abigail book and think they look absolutely gorgeous. Thank you for the opportunity to win them.

I gave my niece Jingle for christmas and she adores him. Although he just howls during the story.

May I firstly congratulate Miss T on her beautiful reading! Way to go Tara! You did that so well.
My first and favourite books were the series by Enid Blyton called The Faraway Tree. I remember loving them because as an 8 year old I got to go to magic places at the top of a tree and meet all kinds of wonderful characters, and eat the best ever sounding food! One was called Pop Tarts. They sounded DELICIOUS!
Just loved hearing you Read Clever girl!

I LOVED The Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton. I just loved the idea of being able to fly away from my life and have adventures. I read that book until the pages were falling out!

I read and re-read every book in DF Bruce’s Dimsie series when I was in primary school. I’d imagine that I was at boarding school with her, and that her friends were my friends. I grew with her as she went up a form a form each year and I chose eh same subjecs and sport choices as Dimsie. When she married and became a mum I wanted to go to England to visit her. When I had children I introduced Dimsie to my girls, who went scounging around OP shop so they could each collect the entire series. When they left school and travelled to England, one of hem found the book she was missing in an antique shop and paid sixty pounds for it. That’s dedication to a childhood dream! Now we have the books set aside ready to share with he next generation as soon as they are old enough.

Oh my gosh, what a lovely thing to think on…
Enid Blyton’s ‘The Wishing Chair’
I went to bed dreaming about sitting in that chair and flying to new adventures – mine were all happy and I always got home to Mum and Dad xxx

Every night at storytime, the book I’d produce
Would be from the very talented man, Dr Seuss
I’d beg mum to read Green Eggs And Ham
Oh how I loved that Sam I Am!
The Lorax, and Horton, and Cat In The Hat
As far as books go, you don’t get better than that!
And I’m sure its where I got my love of rhymes
Reading Dr Seuss books were the greatest of times!!

The Silver Brumby. I first read it at primary school and every now and again have another read even though I’m close to fifty. Horses have been a huge part in keeping our family together and strong through good times and bad. But you don’t need to love horses to love this book. When I lived away it reminded me of Australia and the bush.
One day I am going to go to the Snowy Mountains and see the brumbies.

I to loved “The Magic Faraway Tree”, I read it and read it, and just about knew it word for word, I kept the book for my children, and just a few months ago my daughter asked if I still had the book, and could she have it to read to her son, he now loves the book also.

My favourite book was Peter Pan. I won it 63 years ago as a prize in Primary School when I was seven. It was a very large paper back and the pictures were wonderful!
