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

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

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.
