I love books. I used to slay books like I slay wine right now. But there’s a lack of time. Probably because I’m up to my ears in this little family I made. Happy ears and tired wine slaying ears (but that’s another blog post). So instead of reading Paulo Coelho and Jill Mansel, I read Annie MG Schmidt and Jon Klassen. Every single evening J picks two books. We squeeze ourselves into her toddler bed and as soon as I start reading she relaxes. It’s also the best cure when she’s sad or stressed. She even tries to read to herself or to her sister. I should have called her Matilda. That’s why it’s more than appropriate to start a book item here, to share our favourites once a month. Kicking off with ‘De dierenwereld van Europa‘ or ‘Wildlife of Europe’ by Amy Hamilton for Juniqe.
