all the leaves are brown...........

Well I've got that cosy autumnal feeling going on.  The nights are drawing in, the welly boots and woolly jumpers are coming out and the leaves are crunching underfoot.  The bright skies at the moment are helping to keep the mood cheery and the desire to "all get outside for some fresh air" is still strong.

The boys collected conkers on the walk home from school yesterday and this little number just sums up that autumn vibe for me

Look at him all nestled in there warm and cosy but at the same time kind of tempted to venture out into the big wide world.

Barefoot Books has a lovely new title, 'Listen Listen' which is an audible romp through the seasons.  It really captures young readers, and listeners alike making them think about everything around them.

There are also some fabulous titles for the festive season that will make great gifts for under the tree or for when paying visits.  I shall do a feature on one of my favourites soon, but if you know someone who loves to sew then this is an absolute must for their family bookshelf:  'the fabrics of fairytale'.

My hot chocolate is beckoning, I have my cosy socks on, so I shall settle in for a read.
