How to find the best mobile deals for a child

Dec 23 2020

At some point, nowadays often much sooner than we might like or expect, our children start asking if they can have their own mobile phone. Some will come right out and ask, while others might make subtle hints, mentioning friends who have phones, and gentle enquiries as to when they might be allowed. As parent’s, it a tough balance, and also a much trickier decision than it used to be.

We don’t want our children to be left out, or teased at school. But, nor do we want them to be walking around with very expensive handsets, unsafe and unsure. You may also have worries about how consumed by their phone they might become (which, if we’re honest is something that many adults have personal experience of) and the pressures that come with social media, and always being in touch.

Story connections between Peppa Pig, Winnie the Pooh, Pixar’s Soul & Beatrice and the London Bus

Dec 22 2020

00What do Peppa Pig, Winnie the Pooh, Pixar’s Soul & Beatrice and the London Bus have in common? Well, a lot actually.   

In 2015 I came across a fun, witty, humorous inspiring children’s book series set in London titled Beatrice and the London Bus (Volume one, two and three) written by Francesca Lombardo and published by Daily Fairy Tales, a little London-based, independent publisher.  I immediately fell in love with it and felt compelled to include the children’s book series in London Mums’ list of the top ten children’s books about London.  Beatrice is a contemporary Alice in Wonderland, who makes her dream of driving a London Bus, but not just any bus, the only talking London Bus in London that people with a special gift can hear talking, come true. As the two drive around the city every Sunday, he introduces her to a world of famous speaking buildings, London most famous landmarks, that all have their desire, secret wishes, and problems and Beatrice will resolve many of their problems but also will make some of their dreams come true!
