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.

more books for long journeys
More great books that are skinny and lightweight and perfect for travelling. My Fathers Dragon is a chapter book and for smaller kids (age four-ish), I'd read a chapter or two a night. The illustrations are black and white and amongst my favourite ever. The Day Jimmy's Boa Ate the Wash is funny and daft and ideal for a long journey. Crictor is a book you will read over and over and over again, as is The Big Orange Splot, which I bought for a flight last year.
And...this is the nicest bunch of flowers I've ever been given, (despite the blue stain that handmade vase has left on the window sill).
And finally..my family at the St Patricks day parade. (On a stepladder!)
Belated Beannactai na Feile Padraig (Happy Paddys Day!) from Dublin to all my American readers.
