    A reassuring and funny story that was first published in 1968. This modern classic has gone on to sell over three million copies worldwide, making it one of the most popular picture books for children ever written.

    Sophie and her mother are sitting down to tea one afternoon and the doorbell rings. A big, furry, stripy tiger has come for tea with a big appetite who eats all the food in the house until there’s nothing left to cook for Daddy’s supper.

    My kids adore animals, with my son having a particular soft spot for the big cats, this book is one that gets taken out almost daily. He only wishes that the Tiger would come along and have tea with us! I try to explain the fictional premise of the story, but maybe I’ll change my approach and let him believe its possible.

    If you fancy taking your kid(s) to see this classic story on stage, they are currently showing it at the Lyric theatre. Why not bring the story alive with this wonderful family show.




    Colouring books for Adult is definitely taking part on this weeks Cool Books. The kids love the idea of colouring with me, trying to to copy the way I stroke the intricate details of this enchanted story. Whether you choose to do it with kids or not it is definitely a way of un-winding after a long day at work or a long day of screaming kids.






    We will be picking a couple of books every week so stay tuned!

    There is a palpable sense of confusion and now anger. There is no coordinated efforts from the council to organise people or the thousands of donations coming in. It's chaotic. . . The community have taken the lead and are providing all the support and assistance. Police are stopping people without wristbands in certain areas. . Information is slow in coming through and families affected are starting to question what's going on. "17 dead, come on!" The media aren't reporting a lot of what has and is happening, like the Muslim boys returning home from Ramadan prayers who pushed past the police to get people out. . kids talking about where their friends are, and there are a very concerning number of kids missing from classrooms. A mother told us yesterday that it "simply doesn't make sense". . Our PM has announced a Public Inquiry, when in fact it's an INQUEST that is needed. The former is government lead and the latter gives a voice to the victims. . These people have been let down BEFORE, DURING and now AFTER this horrific incident. Is it because they're poor? It seems as though this is very much a class and race issue? Is it a tipping point? I hope so. . . #grenfelltowerfire #realheroes #glenfelltower #communitylove #change #togetherwecanmakeadifference #forthemanynotthefew #londonfire #londoner #london4all #thisislondon #londonist #speakout #justiceforall #latimerroad #northkensington #communityspirit #seektruth #equalityforall #inquestnotinquiry #endausterity #peopleoverprofit
