Books - The Gallery

We are all little book worms in the family, especially the Mini Mes who read at school, as soon as they get home and again before bed. I tend to use my kindle these days as it's easy to pop in my bag but I do have many books in drawers and stashed away in my room that make an appearance quite regularly. We have lots from colouring and puzzle books, stories, craft and cook books.

Earlier this year Minxy decided she wanted to raise money for the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust after reading about the orphaned elephants in her magazine. She decided to read 50 books in 50 days as part of a read-a-thon and she aimed to raise £100. She received a few kind donations including a lovely bundle from Top That Publishing and she managed to raise £184 for the charity. If your little ones read Animals and You magazine she is being featured again soon with her story!



Jamster and Minxy also enjoyed dressing up for world book day with two of their favourite books.





The Gallery Theme this week is Books
