This month we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing, 50 years since the Apollo 11 created history on 20 July. To celebrate this incredible anniversary, I’ve put together a list of my top picks of children’s books about space, books that will encourage young minds to discover more about the Moon and learn interesting facts about space exploration. There’s something for every child, from the smallest book worm sitting on their parent’s lap to more inquisitive young booklovers and even older independent readers. I hope you will enjoy finding out more the books I’ve selected and love exploring space together with your children! Don't miss my new feature guide on the blog. Which is your favourite children's space book? . . . . #sponsored #apollo11 #apollo50th #moon #panmacmillansa #panmacmillan #PenguinsRead #penguinrandomhouse #penguinrandomhousesa #dkbooks #usbornebooks #struikchildren #samomblogger #sablogger #momblogger #southafricanblogger #raisingdurbs #sabookstagrammers #booksbooksbooks #booksofig #bookreviewer #childrensbooks #kidslit #picturebooks #book #review #bookworm #reading #bookshelf #readingcorner

“She knows too much. And it could cost her family everything.” With just this short introduction the new thriller Out of Sight from James Patterson and Brendan DuBois grabbed my attention.

Perfectly Different is a picture book that gives you the opportunity to discuss with your children how each of us is different, and how we should celebrate those differences. “It takes a bit of everyone to make the perfect crowd, and it really doesn’t matter if you’re brown, white, quiet or loud.” This would make a wonderful addition to school libraries, even more so because it is a proudly South African book.

Although the days are warm in Durban even in Winter, the cooler evenings mean that my skin still gets dry. I’ve been using the SBR Lipocream and SBR Repair cream for just over a week now, and I’ve noticed a difference especially on the areas affected by Psoriasis. Using a small amount of the SBR Repair cream on the areas of concern at night and SBR Lipocream in the day whenever needed has helped to heal the dry, red patches and has left my skin noticeably smoother. I’ve even found it works wonders for my dry lips! It’s gentle enough for the whole family to use, with zero perfume, zero preservatives and zero colouring. Yet this medically formulated range is effective and can be used to treat and manage all dry skin conditions, even eczema. Thanks to Beauty Bulletin for including me in the SBR Lipocream and SBR Repair cream campaign, it was perfect timing to spend a little extra time each day taking care of myself this Winter and getting my skin Summer ready. With less worrying about my skin it also leaves more time to read! . . . . #SelfDefenceForSkinSA #sponsored #samomblogger #sablogger #southafricanblogger #momblogger #beauty #care #beautyreview #sbr #winter #dryskin #eczema #psoriasis #bookstagram #booksbooksbooks #PenguinsRead #penguinrandomhouse #penguinrandomhousesa #booksofig #readingcorner #bookworm #bookshelf #reading #book

I'm currently reading The Unwinding of The Miracle. How do you prepare to die? To say goodbye to your 2 little kids? 💔 . . Born blind in Vietnam, Julie Yip-Williams narrowly escaped euthanasia planned by her grandmother, only to have to flee the political upheaval of the late 1970s with her family. Loaded into a rickety boat with three hundred other refugees, Julie made it to Hong Kong and, ultimately, America, where a surgeon gave her partial sight. Against all odds, she became a Harvard-educated lawyer, with a husband, a family, a life. Then, at the age of thirty-seven, with two little girls still at home, Julie was diagnosed with terminal metastatic colon cancer, and a different journey began. . . . The Unwinding of the Miracle is the story of motherhood, marriage, ambition, love, wanderlust, tennis, grief, jealousy, anger, comfort, pain, disease - this is a book about a life lived well and cut cruelly short. With glorious humour, bracing honesty and the cleansing power of welldeployed anger, Julie has set the stage for her final legacy: the story of her life. . . . Inspiring and instructive, delightful and shattering, this is not just a tale about cancer. It’s about truth and honesty, fear and pain, our dreams, our jealousies and our anger. And it’s about how to say goodbye to your children and a life you love. . . . I started crying on the 2nd page already.....and I'm reading this slowly, because I honestly am dreading getting to the end. I know her husband also does the Epilogue at the end....so I'm sure it'll be a free flow with the tears on my side. So far I'm enjoying the way the book is written. I love how honest it is....and how practical Julie is about this journey that lies ahead of her. . . . .

This past weekend we visited Exclusive Books for a special unicorn themed event. There was fun colouring in, pin the horn on the unicorn, face painting and we also got to listen to Oscar the Hungry Unicorn. We have loved attending these Exclusive Books events to celebrate Children's Month, and we hope there will be more in the future to help teach our children that reading is fun! Check out Exclusive Books for more details on the last events taking place across the country this weekend. Oscar The Hungry Unicorn is a fun story with bright and beautiful illustrations as well as a glittery cover. It makes my children giggle every time we read it, and it's available in book stores now. Oscar is a unicorn, but he’s not like any other unicorn you’ve ever seen. He’s a hungry unicorn, and because he’s so hungry and can’t help himself he eats everything in sight. . . . . . @exclusivebooks @penguinbookssouthafrica @nikki_dyson #samomblogger #sablogger #momblogger #southafricanblogger #oscarthehungryunicorn #PenguinsRead #penguinrandomhouse #penguinrandomhousesa #childrensbooks #bookreviewer #booksofinstagram #booksofig #bookstagram #bookworm #books #bookshelf #raisingdurbs

Here what we are reading right now: Pop up Peekaboo Unicorn. This is an awesome read aloud book for the kiddies, which encourages the learning of colours and has such cute characters. We had such fun turning the pages and lifting the flaps and playing Peek a boo. Perfect for toddlers and up to preschool. Book retails for around R120 and is a great for gifting as well. #Books #bookworm #kidsbooks #reallifemumsite #bookstagram #bookobsessed #bookreview #bookphotography #penguinrandomhousesa #sablogger #momblogger #blogger #microblogger #bookreviewersofinstagram #bookreviewersouthafrica #southafricanbookblogger #bookblogger #parenting #motherhood #unicorn #dkbooks

www.penguinrandomhouse.co.za ISBN 9781432309367 Format Paperback Recommended Price R350.00 Published March 2019 About the book: ‘Spices weaved their way into my kitchen and somehow my collection seems to flourish regardless of the homes and locations I’ve lived in.’ From the author and chef of Cooking for my father in My Cape Malay Kitchen, comes a cookbook that chronicles her adulation and reverence for spices. Cariema Isaacs’s affinity for spices emanates from her Cape Malay heritage and her time spent cooking and baking in her grandmother’s kitchen in Bo-Kaap, the Cape Malay Quarter in Cape Town. Thus, at a very early age she understood the tastes derived from cumin and coriander, the pungency of fennel, cloves and star anise, and the piquancy of chilli powder, cayenne pepper and masala blends. Spice Odyssey showcases a multitude of beautifully written recipes with some familiar spices from her Cape Malay heritage and fresh aromatics from her travels to India, Turkey, Malaysia, Sri Lanka and the Middle East. ‘From east to west, north to south, the routes and journeys travelled from shore to shore by slaves and explorers, travellers and traders, the story of spices emerged and the spice odyssey began.’ Contents: Foreword; Introduction; Essence; Cherish; Craving; Harvest; Warmth; Feast; Indulge; Preserve; Comfort; Bibliography; Recipe index. #penguinrandomhouse #penguinrandomhousesa #spiceodyssey #cariemaisaacs #proudlysouthafrican

This one is for all musicians and music lovers 🖤 Daisy Jones & The Six, follows a fictional rock band, and their beautiful lead singer, rising through the ranks of the L.A. rock scene in the 1970's. This novel has everything from humour to raw emotion. It deals with love, friendship, professional relationships and all the complexities that comes with it. The story unfolds as an interview, leaving you wanting more and constantly having to remind yourself that the characters aren't real. @tjenkinsreid it's like you wrote this book for me 🖤 • • • #daisyjonesandthesix #daisyjones #taylorjenkinsreid #penguinrandomhousesa #penguinrandomhouse #randomhouse #booklovers #mustread #bookstagram #books #bookworm #bookaddict #bookaholic #bookphotography #bookphoto #bookworm #booktography #readers #vinyls #bobdylan #therollingstones #adventureswiththequietone
