New Little English School Library

Busy days getting ready to set up the second open-access Little English School Library in the Montessori+ in Prinsenbeek. Many books are already on-site and the 1-2-3 packs have arrived. Books are being labelled and I am trying out a simplified categorising system (theme & number)… fingers crossed. More photos next week.


Old Hat

Fabulous new book by Emily Gravett called ‘Old Hat’. A great book about celebrating who you are. Not always easy in this day and age especially if you are only little. My girls (6 & 8) kindly tried out the activities provided on Emily’s website Brilliant! Now this ‘Old Hat’ will be going on our next recommended picturebook-list for primary schools in NL!


In May this year, I spent a great hour this morning at a local Dutch primary school reading / acting Shh! We have a plan by Chris Haughton to a Year 3 & Year 4 class. The children were brilliant, they joined in calling out the words in English, tip-toeing and climbing … I can tell you, these 6-8 year olds had some great plans. Little Superstars.
