Playing with Fantastic Fiction

I love Playing By the Book website for so many reasons, but my absolute fave is the Fantastic Fiction series devised by the very talented Zoe Toft.

She essentially invites guest posts from people who love children's books on a particular theme, and then goes about exploring this theme in full, including craft and activity ideas, music, games, play and other fantastical ways to fully implement the joy of reading. The many themes already covered include houses, cats, theatres, baking, sharks, sewing and all things Australian.

I'm delighted to be guest posting in early March and will provide the link here. My theme? Travel, of course.

In the meantime, you can check out other wonderfully decadent themes here. May they inspire you to make reading an all-encompassing, interactive experience for your children.
