This months Virtual Book club for kids author is Leo Lionni and we’ve chosen 2 books first I’m sharing our exploration of colour with the book Little Blue and Little Yellow (this is an affiliate link).
I have never read any Leo Lionni books and as colours is something that I am working with T on I thought it sounded a great book to read with them both. In the end J got the most out of it. The story is about Little Blue and Little Yellow and the fun that they have being friends – but underlying it

We are a music loving household – the CD player always has a children’s music CD in it or the radio is on. Musical instruments can be found around the house and both J and T will burst into spontaneous song at various points during the day. So seeing DIY Music Ideas and some ways for Tots to play and learn about music were a great idea for us to feature on Rainy Day Mum this week.

Announcing the first annual Backyard Barbecue Bloghop!
Our Barbecue was cleaned off over last weekend (and promptly discovered that bits hadn’t faired well over the winter so need replacing before it’s functional) our deck was washed and prepared for summer time play and entertaining outside and I got sorting out the kids toys and bits and bobs that had been put away for the Autumn and Winter making them easily accessible to come out as soon as the rain stops and the sun comes out.
With so many fun summer activities I jumped at the chance to co-host the
