Glorious pink campion is everywhere now at Old Barn Books. Billowing out of the hedgerows, peeking over gates, and fussing outside the library door... doesn’t it look just like Dora’s hair.

Bilingual storytime!
Hindi is our national language but we often don't teach our little ones at an early age.... Most grow up to not like the language or find it difficult to learn at school later... It is best we expose our kids to these bilingual stories at early age some of my favourite books are by @tulikabooks  which is available in most Indian languages so pelase pick up some bilingual books in your mother tongue as well 😄

Picture books still reign supreme with Miss 5, but we’ve started dabbling in the world of chapter books. She couldn’t get enough of Ramona Quimby (they totally hold up!), and recently we’ve been enjoying these new “Tiggy and the Magic Paintbrush” books by @zannilouise . These are sort of a cross between picture and chapter book - they have a longer story, but also have colour pictures, and you can read them in one sitting.
We’d love to sink into some more age appropriate chapter books - she’s not ready for Roald Dahl, David Walliams, or Andy Griffiths, but I know there are plenty of good ones out there. Suggestions?

From the blog: 
I have this huge affinity for snails that started when I was little.  There's a great video of my cousins, sisters, and me playing in the backyard with snails.  I think theoretically we are rescuing and clearing the garden from them.  I also remember putting them in jars and watching them kiss.  And even though I have this ancient video, there are certain moments that I actually remember too, despite being only three years old.
🐌
Suffice it to say that snails bring happy memories of my childhood. 🐌
Escargot, written by Dashka Slater and illustrated by Sydney Hanson, is certain to create some happy childhood reading memories for you and your little one.  The featured snail is a charming, if not slightly narcissistic French snail, whose sole goal through the book is to get to his favorite type of salad.  Along the way, we find out that the snail may not be SO narcissistic, and may have some qualms of his own.
🐌
On re-read, he, in fact, reminds me of almost every 3-4 year old I've met.  Full of life, chattering away, full of courage, full of fear.  And let's not forget: fear of trying unknown foods!  Escargot is not your typical journey through a picture book and I like that I can't fully predict what's going to happen.  It's encouraging while not being overly preachy, and it's definitely, definitely charming.  It doesn't hurt that Little Lion is a bit of a Francophile right now.  She's already asking to visit Lafayette's grave when we go to Europe this summer. "We'll see," is our typical, noncommital parental answer. 🐌
Would you choose snail as your favorite animal? 🐌#escargot #dashkaslater #sydneyhanson #picturebook

How adorable is my niece?! She just turned two and is just as obsessed with Costco as the other women in her life. She’s on the right track. We gave her that book (Illustrated Alphabet) while she was still in my sisters belly and according to her mama it’s her favorite and the only paperback book allowed her room :) I love being the book aunt! 📚 •

My daughter loves to read a book at three times before bed. This is what we have been reading lately. Stephen Krensky has such empowering books for children, and I love the diverse characters. Check them out!

sent CROWN: AN ODE TO THE FRESH CUT off in a package today to my book buddy in flint, michigan. as you can tell from the cover, this picture book won *all* of the awards, and for good reason. it’s got gorgeous art, lyrical text, and a catchy title. i love seeing a confident black boy on the cover, too. i know there will be kids who see themselves represented in media for the first time when they pick up this book. the awards it won mean that it’ll go far, and get placed in more classrooms and libraries. i feel so strongly that kids should see themselves in books, and this is a great one.

FILLETING FISH! 🙌🏻😆 Because sometimes this parenting job is hard and creating activities that make me laugh help keep me sane! Since these fish didn’t have special rainbow scales it was decided that they were ok to cut! ☺️ AB is at that scissor obsessed stage where everything needs to be cut. Paint swatches are my new best friend! And so is the Rainbow Fish! I love the message she shares and lessons this book teaches about friendship, sharing and acceptance. #therainbowfish

Has anyone noticed the messaging of my book cover before?!? Have you noticed that the frame around Sheriauna looks like a mirror?? I can’t take full credit for the idea but what struck me when I saw this is that my book is a reflection of Sheriauna but Sheriauna is also a reflection of us all.  There will always be competing entities: up/down, in/out, light/dark.  The more light we can reflect hopefully the world will become a brighter more welcoming place even when darkness is ever present.  We can all be kind, accepting and understanding.  We all have a light inside of us as long as we have breath....Be the light 💜🌎✌🏽😊

“A Beginner’s Guide to Bear Spotting” by Michelle Robinson and David Roberts is a humour-filled guide to, well, bear spotting. Definitely something any Canadian kid needs right? It has useful tips for which ones will eat you (all of them) and what to do should you come  across a black or brown bear. It’s funny and cute with a great idea on how to appease a wild bear (hint: a cute stuffed bear). Although the guide should really be taken with a grain of salt - as any Canadian kid will know 😜 you shouldn’t really approach a bear (just in case you are from say, England or Japan, read this and think taking a picture with a real bear and a stuffed bear would be cute. DON’T DO IT. Urm, we actually lose tourists/tourists get injured every year 😳).

This is the book that sealed the deal for me! A complete lift the flap explaining to your littles how their bodies work!

I walked into the kitchen this winter to find D drawing on his easel. He happily exclaimed “Mommy! Look! These are my intestines” and then he proceeded to show me the route of his food being digested.

“When parents are asked why their children don’t play outside anymore, they often site their children’s own preferences as well as safety concerns. In particular, they often refer to the seductive qualities of television and computer games. However, in a large scale study in which children themselves were asked about their play preferences, outdoor play with friends came out on top.” Peter Gray, Free to Learn

If I Were a Lion by Sarah Weeks and Heather M. Solomon. 
I’ve read this one so many times that my little guy has the first few pages memorized. It’s so cute to hear him say, “ I’m sitting in my time out chair because my mudder put me dere...”
The book is so well written it’s a fun book to read over and over again. I’m so glad there is the message of how to act sweet and kind in there too. As a mom I really dislike books that only talk about the bad wild behavior. I mean the authors are just giving my kids bad ideas!! Because of this book we talked a lot about what it means to be meek and mild, precocious and polite. 
I think the illustration of this spunky red head reminds my son of one of his favorite friends and it’s one of the reasons why he always picks it out. I might have to gift it to her soon! I think her fiery spirit could relate!

If you happen to know any Elmer fans I'm sure they will be pleased to know Elmer Day is approaching! Elmer Day is on the 26th May and many libraries, @waterstones , @jojomamanbebe are hosting special events for the day. This week our local libraries are celebrating by hosting story tellings and mini art and craft projects. They also request everyone wear brightly coloured clothes on attendance. Or you might like to get creative at home and make your own Elmer just like Baby and I did this morning. We used card and paper found in our recycle box and as you can see he's feeling quite at home.

Yes, 2019 picture books.  I am here for this!
...
Look what’s coming in January 2019: Brave Ballerina The Story of Janet Collins.  Below is the description from the publisher.
✨
A lyrical picture book biography of Janet Collins, the first African American principal dancer at the Metropolitan Opera House.
...
Janet Collins wanted to be a ballerina in the 1930s and 40s, a time when racial segregation was widespread in the United States. Janet pursued dance with a passion, despite being rejected from discriminatory dance schools. When she was accepted into the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo as a teenager on the condition that she paint her skin white for performances, Janet refused. She continued to go after her dreams, never compromising her values along the way. From her early childhood lessons to the height of her success as the first African American prima ballerina in the Metropolitan Opera, this is the story of a remarkable pioneer.
...
Available for pre-ordering now via the link in my profile or in my stories.  Who else is excited? 👇🏾#braveballerina #janetcollins #blackhistory #representationmatters #blackgirlsdoballet #michellemeadows

"The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett tells the story of orphan Mary Lennox and how Misselthwaite Manor with its secrets changed her. 
I have watched the movie and the Japanese cartoon series of this book when I was a kid. Sadly, it wasn’t on any list of required books to read at school. It would have been nice to read the original story back then.

It's one of the reasons why homeschooling my little Queen B appeals to me. With homeschooling, I can introduce her to these great and timeless stories.  It will still be a while before I intend to read this or similar novels to her but it's not too early to start collecting them and reading them myself. 🤓🤓🤓 #inspiredandintentionalliving

How I felt today when seeing the first pass at a storyboard from @toon_town_lenny for The Little Labradoodle first release - Puppy Pickup Day.  Feels like it’s taken so long to get here and I’m so excited but taking time to celebrate and enjoy the fun of seeing it come to life!

There’s nothing like having a grandchild climb up on your lap and want to read a story.  This is Bella, my first grandchild who started it all.  I love the intimacy of it and I am excited to be writing one that I can read to them soon!
