Five reads for November
This month, I'll be reading...
1. Mollie Makes
Above is a photograph of my latest Mollie Makes piece, beautifully illustrated by the super-talented Emma Block (who also took this pic). It's about the art of giving; a gentle reminder to look beyond consumerism this Christmas.
2. I Love Dirt!
I don't, not naturally. But I'm making myself, what with all the research showing outdoor play to be hugely beneficial to kids. This handy book comes with 52 ideas for things to do with kids to help you discover the wonders of nature.
3. Grimm Tales: For Young and Old
My friend Alice told me about this book; it was duly ordered and is providing exactly the right level of enchantment and horror for a six-year-old's bedtime story. Philip Pullman can do no wrong, can he?
4. What Katie Ate: Recipes and Other Bits and Bobs
I'm reviewing this book for Gathered so can't give too much away. But if you're a fan of Katie's blog then you will know what to expect. Beautiful images and glorious recipes abound.
5. Remodelista: A Manual for the Considered Home
Remodelista is one of the sites I visit most regularly for a daily dose of interiors beauty and interesting-ness. This is the book of the website and might just have to go on a Christmas list or two.
