One of my most treasured books as a child was Jan Wade's Australian Flower Fairies. Her illustrations are just beautiful and it's a lovely way to learn about some of our native flowers. I know it's dreadfully naughty to cut up a book, but I managed to track down another copy and framed some of my favourite pictures to hang in the twins' bedroom. My pick for day 23: #flowers in the #ekbooks #picbookaday challenge. #childrensbook #bookskidslove #brisbaneblogger #fairies

A beautifully illustrated Christmas tale by Melbourne author and illustrator Heath Mckenzie.

Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World

Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World

A new picture book champions greater aspirations for today’s girls and women by celebrating those who have achieved amazing feats.

A spindle from Rumplestiltskin in Walter Wick's "Can you see what I see? Once upon a time" book, which my daughter loves. Finding everything  hidden in the pictures keeps her interested for ages! #bookskidslove #picturebook #fairytail #childrensbook

Possibly my favourite children's book ever. Jez Alborough's Where's My Teddy is simple but brilliant and we read it again and again.  #bookskidslove #picturebook #popupbook #childrensbook #teddybear #jezalborough #walkerbooks #toddlerbook #babybook

My girls and I pulled out our pencils and scissors after discovering Julia Donaldson's Paper Dolls at the library last week. Got to love it when a book prompts a craft project! I reckon our dolls are nearly as good as the ones in the book by illustrator Rebecca Cobb.  It's a lovely story, particularly for mums and daughters. #childrensbook #bookskidslove #picturebook #paperdolls #kidscrafts #juiadonaldson #rebeccacobb

My little man loves this cute book about a boy who wants to be a train driver when he grows up. Train Man is written by #AndreaZimmerman and beautifully illustrated by #DavidClemesha. #bookskidslove #picturebook #trains #whenigrowup #childrensbook #boybook

Ugly author Robert Hoge may not have looked the same as other kids growing up, but I still reckon he was a pretty cute kid. He's grown up to be a fantastic writer (among other things) with the children's version of his memoir #Ugly pitched perfectly to kids, helping them empathise with others who may be different without preaching to them. Ugly is my pick for the #ekbooks #picbookaday challenge, day 28 theme: diversity.
