Reviews of all the books I read with my children. And some other stuff we get up to; cool toys and games I find, some easy crafts - things like that.

Jabba the Puppett, Princess Labelmaker and Emperor Pickletine
These three came in very handy this week. My thirteen year old took quite a knock at a rugby match on Wednesday and while recovering in bed afterwards with three hot water bottles(three! It was such a cold day, and SO muddy!) and a bag of frozen peas, he read one of them. Then, the next morning he read another while we waited at the hospital for an x-ray. (Poor boy - he has a fractured collar bone - the most common rugby injury.)
Anyway, he's currently on a steady diet of neurofen and netflix and reading nothing but the credits at then end of Father Ted episodes. But sure, there's a time for reading and a time for goofing off, and until he feels a lot better, he has my permission to stay on Craggy Island.
