Miss GL Valentines Book Corner


“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Dr. Seuss




In our home we like to celebrate all the seasonal events and occasions, not only so we can make precious memories together but also so we can form our own family traditions, for hopefully our girls to continue with their children and so forth.

One of my favourite ways to celebrate an upcoming occasion with the girls is to read them stories around this topic. It's such a lovely relaxing way to teach them about different religious festivals, holidays and generally appreciating those around us, whilst also getting cuddles with us. 

We have read to our girls from day one as we want them to enjoy the escapism a book can offer. It is wonderful to see Miss GL's imagination take over as she becomes part of the story going on magical adventures. Each night we have three books that we read, a trusty favourite (currently Stick Man), a few pages of a big girls book (currently James and the Giant Peach) and finally a seasonal book.

With Valentines Day at the weekend we have recently rediscovered our collection of books around the theme of love, appreciating the wonder of our loved ones and Valentines Day itself. We have gathered these books over the last three years so there are some books the Mini Miss GL can enjoy, stories they will both enjoy listening to now and hopefully in many years to come.



On Miss GL's book ledges the current selection of books about love in its various forms is;  




We are also reading these books at the minute;

The Perfect Hug 




They're all beautiful stories which we enjoy rediscovering every year.

We hope you have a lovely Valentines Day celebrate all the different forms of love in your life. 

Thank you for reading! xx
