Charlie & Lola: One Thing by Lauren Child RRP$19.99

I’ve been in love with straight talking Lola since Ethan was little and am so happy that Nix loves these siblings just as much as his brother did.

Nixon turned 3 a couple of months ago and counting is his jam right now.  He’s starting to recognise that numbers are everywhere and he wants to talk about them all the time.

And by that I mean, ALL THE TIME lol.

New Zealand's Top Mummy Blogger Parenting Travel Blog Family Charlie and Lola Book‘One Thing’ is classic Charlie and Lola.  Charlie’s everlasting patience shepherds Lola through an excursion to the shops and they (and little readers) enjoy counting and discovering all kinds of numbers and sums simply everywhere along the way.

As a parent, the joy of both watching and reading about this loveable pair is that they are so relatable.  A Charlie and Lola episode or book IS real life with under-5s!  The magically inquisitive, stroppy, assertive and infinitely knowledgable Lola is somehow both of my kids simultaneously.  Lauren Child does a genius job of weaving age-appropriate maths in with a tale, and characters, that will be loved by both adult readers and little listeners alike.

Available in stores or via Ebook 11/10/16.

I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
