Win 1 of 3 copies of The Boss Baby DVD & FREE ACTIVITY SHEETS to download

Jul 27 2017

I am glad The Boss Baby DVD is out so soon after official release as this will be one of the Summer DVDs for sure. We all loved it when it was released in cinemas and we got to interview the main stars (Alec Baldwin and Lisa Kudrow) as well as director and creator Tom McGrath behind it so I feel The Boss Baby is a very special movie for London Mums and the child reporters of our kids' club. We have three copies of the The Boss Baby DVD to give away. You can enter the competition and download the activity sheets from the movie to entertain the children over the Summer.

Today's children are often bombarded with videos and cannot easily focus on reading a paper book. I have recently discovered the magic effect of audiobooks on my 10 year old son. Diego and I have been recently listening to The Railway Children a lot. This audio gave us the chance to talk about this classic novel in a new mature way considering the historical moment, the way children lived during the Edwardian era, comparing it to our modern life, and so on. Audiobooks have traditionally been used with struggling readers or non-readers to help them to access literature and enjoy books. But they can equally be used with avid readers. I love paper books, for example, but I have now discovered the BBC audio for children's classics and must say that they are very pleasant as they make difficult books so accessible.
