March is New Zealand Book Month

thanks to Alisa I now know this!!! Check it out HERE

Alisa is sharing some of her favourite books on her blog and I thought I'd join in! We are a book loving family and read EVERY day. Riley and Abbey love books! So here is my first pick of for Book Month!!

Milo and the Magical Stones - Marcus Pfister

I discovered this book when I was teaching in ECE and immediately LOVED it! I was already a HUGE fan of Marcus Pfister with his Rainbow Fish Books. The coolest thing about this book and the sequel 'Milo and the Mysterious Island', is that you can choose a Happy or Sad ending!! How cool is that! Half way through the story the book splits in half and you can either read the Happy ending or the sad ending. Its a beautiful story which teaches children valuable moral lessons and the illustrations are stunning. It is kinda long but my 3yr old class as well as my kids from about 3 loved it.

Here's how you can join in....
Link up below with your blog post telling us what books you are loving, and don't forget to link back to here in your post (or use this button below). Linky open until Thursday!!

If you don't have a blog but have a book you want to recommend let me know!! I'll blog about YOUR favourite book too!!

p.s thanks PaisleyJade for giving me the linky idea!!
