Blogger Chat with Mamabearofone

If you’ve watched Jamie aka Mamabearofone on her Instastories (of which she posts quite a lot!) she comes across as funny, relatable, honest and also perhaps a bit ‘dizzy’ at times.

15 Best Children’s Books

We can all spot a good or bad children’s book, can’t we? As an English teacher, I would consider myself quite discerning when it comes to books for adults, although we all have our personal choices. Similarly, when it comes to children’s books, I believe there really is the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ and I... Continue Reading →
