We all have childhood memories of gifts we were given. Some gifts were coveted while others made us cringe. I love to hear stories of childhood gifts and who better to ask than my favourite bloggers?
I’m a sucker for picture books and when I discovered Megan Daley’s blog Children’s Books Daily, I was in book heaven. Megan has created a fabulous space full of book reviews, reading activities, tips for parents and interviews.
Megan knows her stuff. She is a teacher librarian, involved with The Children’s Book Council of Australia and last year won the ‘Queensland Teacher Librarian of the Year’ award. And because she can’t sit still, she’s also a judge for the Queensland Literary Awards, a sessional academic at Queensland University of Technology, writes for KidSpot and various literary and library journals, on the Queensland chapter of the Australian Children’s Laureate and a part of the Publications Committee for National Library of Australia Publishing. Like I said, she knows her stuff!
Megan’s love of books shines through in her writing and her many book recommendations have become firm favourites with my tornadoes. I can also relate to the parenting stories she shares involving her two adorable and feisty kids, PudStar and ChickPea/The Wild Thing.
I was excited when Megan agreed to share her favourite childhood gift memories. Of course I was expecting her favourite gift to be a book, but was surprised by this beautiful story…
