Childhood is wonderful and bringing stories alive through crafts and activities is by far our favourite way to engage with early literacy. Last week saw the first ever Poppins Book Nook and it was wonderful to see so many of the activities linked up to Tuesday Tots so this week I’m featuring Knights Castles and Dragons Activities based on books brought to live by the bloggers of the Poppins Books Nook that linked up to Tuesday Tots.

Sharing a Shell Small World Play
This months virtual book club for kids author is Julia Donaldson – I hope you could read my smile in there – it’s one of our favourite authors and there was so many books to choose from – with the virtual book club for kids running for a month we hope to get in a few more books. But we’re starting off with Sharing a Shell.
Sharing a shell is one of our all time favourite Julia Donaldson books – it combines my love of marine life with fabulous rhyming language and fun illustrations.

Sharing a Shell by Julia Donaldson is another of our read often books. It sits on J’s bedside table – a tale of 3 friends who find each other in a rock pool.
I absolutely love this story and the rhythm and rhyme to the words used – I’ve recently discovered a video of Julia Donaldson singing it (our home copy doesn’t have a CD with it) and T and I will sit and watch and listen to it during quiet time.
With a hermit crab, a anemone and a bristle worm I must say that it’s my favourite of

Although this month we are mainly reading Julia Donaldson today would have been Dr Seuss’ 109th birthday so today it’s There’s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr Seuss.
This is a fantastic book full of made up rhyming words a wocket in my pocket, a findow in my window and a gellar in the cellar. J absolute loves this and we have spent many many hours since reading There’s a Wocket in my Pocket making up other creatures that we could have in different places around the house.
