Picture book of the month and a chat with author Uju Asika about A World for Me and You

Jul 06 2022

There are lots of beautiful new picture books to take with you on holiday and read to the children this Summer. My personal favourite one has to be Uju Asika’s A World for Me and You, published with Hachette Children’s Group. 

Uju is a fabulous mum and writer and I have recently caught up with her. She a multiple award-nominated blogger, screenwriter and  creative consultant. On her popular blog, Babes About Town, she shares  ‘witty, informative and beautifully written’ stories about London,  culture and family life. She is also the founder of digital consultancy,  Mothers and Shakers. A former journalist, she’s written for  publications such as The Guardian, Time Out and Salon.com and her poetry  appears in select literary anthologies. As a screenwriter and script  editor, she’s worked on some of Africa’s hottest TV shows, including the  award-winning series Tinsel. Born in Nigeria, Uju grew up in the UK and  has worked in London, New York and Lagos. She lives in north London  with her husband and two football-mad boys.

A World for Me and You is a beautiful book about encouraging children to celebrate, appreciate and understand diversity and also a great way to open up conversations with children surrounding acceptance and difference. 

Enjoy our chat!

Film review: Thor: Love and Thunder 

Jul 05 2022
Thor: Love and Thunder is without a doubt the best Thor movie to date. The mix of comedic slapstick gags, emotional scenes and scarily interesting villains is fabulous. Marvel has clearly got that mix right and understood that people need fun movies that are not relatable to their lives to be able to switch off from the daily grind. The movie hits cinemas on 8th July 2022. It is family friendly and suitable for children from 8 years of age.
