Books I'm reading at the moment:

Heart to Heart Parenting by Robin Grille
(Fascinating stuff - did you know that the global average age of weaning is 4.2 years?! Since learning this I've decided to chill out about the fact that my 15 month old is still pretty much feeding like a newborn, night and day, although I think 2 years will have to be my absolute limit. I am exhausted! Anyway, I really recommend this book - it's great.)

Started Early, Took My Dog by Kate Atkinson
(Not sure about the title, but I love Kate Atkinson's writing and have devoured the Jackson Brodie series. This is the fourth one and it has me captivated already. My favourite of hers, however, is still Behind the Scenes at the Museum, which I must reread some time soon. The only problem is I keep giving away copies - I think I'm on my third! Sign of a good book: not having it on your shelf.)

Ugly Fish by Kara LaReau and Scott Magoon
(Brilliant picture book. I think this might be one of those ones that I like more than she does! It's very funny and dark and there's a moral. My three year old kind of gets it, but mostly she's just amused by my chuckles. It's not going back to the library just yet.)
