So here is our July 2018 instalment of the Mums NI Book Nook.
This month we focus a little bit on the Dads... we've included the eagerly awaited "The Dad Lab" by Sergei Urban which will help get Dad involved with Kids activities during the summer break... let's hope there are no explosions in the Kitchen with this one! Also on the list is a new Harry Potter and a comedy book for you Mums!
This beautiful board book is the perfect introduction to Summertime. From sand castles to ice cream, explore the vibrant artwork created by acclaimed artist Jane Foster. The perfect gift for holidays or a summer baby.
Under the Same Sky is a wonderful exploration of the animal kingdom celebrating the differences between them whilst embracing what unites them.
Using beautiful, lyrical narration we travel across the world and see songs being sung, games being played and love being felt. It is the hopes and the dreams which they share that bring them together. Although this is told through the eyes of the animal kingdom this simplistic message can be applied to humanity as well.
A wonderfully, poignant story which demands to be shared!
What silently waits in the shadows at night? What's under your bed, keeping just out of sight?
Do you ever hear strange, creaking noises at night? Ever wonder what makes those noises?
Lucy Dungston always did.
One morning, Lucy discovers that all the grown-ups have disappeared - as if into thin air. Chaos descends as the children in Lucy's town run riot. It's mayhem. It's madness. To most kids, it's amazing!
But Lucy wants to find out the truth. Lucy lost her dad not long ago, and she's determined not to lose her mum too. She's going to get her back - and nothing is going to stop her . . .
. . . except maybe the Creakers.
For the first time, readers can relive all the movie magic of the Harry Potter series with this beautiful guidebook to the secrets of Hogwarts, complete with four foldout pages containing portions of the map. When fans are finished poring over the text, they can open up the wand, which doubles as an invisible ink marker and light.
The light reveals invisible ink secrets on the foldout Marauder's Map pages, while the pen can help readers create their own magical map, using the blank parchment included at the back of this book. When all is said and done, this spellbinding guide is sure to have fans saying, "Mischief managed."
This book is everything I've been through that's made me who I am, plus the lessons I've learned from many mistakes. I hope that it will make you laugh as well as give you strength to keep going when times get tough. After all, we are all in this together...Rachaele, aka Part-Time Working Mummy
Hundreds of thousands of fans flock to the PTWM page online and now, in this book, Rachaele shares her behind-the-scenes experiences with single parenthood, unexpected pregnancy, domestic violence, relationships, bullying and much more - spreading kindness amidst the craziness along the way!
Why Mummy Swears is the much anticipated new novel from Gill Sims, author of the hilarious Why Mummy Drinks and online sensation Peter and Jane.
It’s every parents’ nightmare – the start of the school holidays – and instead of sitting in the sun, reading a book over a cold, crisp glass of Pinot Grigio, Mummy has two bored moppets to attend to. After frantically booking sports camps, child minder slots, not to mention time off work, Mummy is exhausted. But this is only the beginning…
After being dragged to join the school’s PTA in the new term by an annoyingly kind-spirited neighbour, Mummy is stuck with organising the Christmas Fayre and pleasing all the overly disapproving parents. In combination with getting to know her father’s surprise new glamorous (and much younger) wife, and being forced to spend more time with her narcissistic mother, life isn’t cutting her much of a break. What more could possibly happen?
With more than 3 million fans, TheDadLab has quickly become an online sensation by creating a solution for parents when they hear the dreaded 'I'm bored' complaint, and now, for the first time, Sergei Urban has transferred his most popular experiments to print in this beautifully illustrated and mind-blowing book!
Using everyday ingredients that you can find in your kitchen cupboard, Sergei shows experiments that are not only fun for children, but fun for adults too! With 40 wonderful activities, including 15-never-before-posted, TheDadLab includes additional information not found on his online posts: each activity will feature a detailed explanation simplifying the information that stems from the fields of Science, Technology, engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) for a parent to help explain their curious child and answer the questions 'how' and 'why.'
