Great Tips About Books for Children Of All Ages

Hi There..... Do you have kids..... Or maybe already grandkids?

I have two kids..... But they are no kids anymore except for me maybe..... They will always be my little ones even though they now are 31 and 32 😁

But somewhere far far away..... Well, just an 8-minute drive actually..... There lives a sweet princess called Lana..... Who stole my heart..... Could be the beginning of a new Fairytale 😀



Oh yes, you guessed it..... Lana is my 4-year-old granddaughter..... She is quite a little rascal but I love her to pieces..... And one of her favorite things to do is read books..... No, of course, she can't really read herself but she loves it when I read to her..... And she is always curious about the illustrations 😊

So you can understand that I was very happy to receive a hand-signed copy of Caroline L Thornton's book 'Once Upon and Ever After' to review 😃


Maybe the name Caroline L Thornton doesn't ring a bell..... But hey, here I am..... The Bell-Ringer 😁

She is Scottish and she writes books for children of all ages..... She loves movies, all animals but especially rabbits and sloths, and all things vintage

Aha..... You want to know what my little princess thought about it of course..... And I can say that she was very interested in the story and she liked that there were a lot of pictures in the book..... My granddaughter has a lot of imagination so she loves this kind of books.....She loved the fact that it was somehow a reference to other tales she had already heard about but that this story still was very different 😍

Hey, wait..... Come on now..... I haven't told you what I think about it..... I think it's a really nice book..... And I love that it is completely in rhyme..... The story also lets you think that you know what will happen next..... But then suddenly there's a twist and things turn out quite different from what you expect..... I would definitely recommend this book 😃

Oh yes..... I almost forgot to tell you that it also has a handy word guide at the end of the book..... I think that's such a great addition..... Especially for kids that are learning how to read themselves 😄

If you are interested you can also check out these 2 other books from her collection

Scared of the Dark


The Blustery Day


All books are available in Kindle version too.....I would definitely go check out her website..... She has a lot of fun stuff on it too..... like crosswords, quizzes, coloring pictures, and lots more fun and educational stuff..... And her books are quite affordable too 😄

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day

How to connect with European Brands or Small shops and Bloggers or Influencers

Hi There.....Would you like to connect with others?

Yes..... Cool..... I might have the perfect solution for you..... No..... Ok, I am cool with that too..... Be on your own..... Lock yourself in..... But if you change your mind and have the need to do something really wild..... Come and join us   😃

So what's this idea of mine..... A while ago I made a Facebook group Connect Europe Brands Small Shops Bloggers Influencers

based on a picture from PublicDomainPictures on Pixabay

I noticed there were a lot of similar connecting groups but no specific groups for us Europeans.....  So instead of waiting for someone else to create one..... I thought why not dive into it myself..... So now I am in complete control and I've got the power..... Like in the song from Snap 😎

But of course, you would like to know what this group is for..... It's ok to be curious..... Well, at least this time 😀

So the intention of the group is as its name already says..... To connect on the one hand Bloggers and Influencers and on the other hand Brands or Small Shops from Europe.

There are polls in the group where you can fill in which country you come from..... That could be a first way to connect..... With fellow countrymen..... Or women..... For Example, we created a Facebook messenger group with all our members in the group from Belgium  😁

There is another poll in the group where you can fill in if you are Blogger, Influencer, or otherwise Brand or Small Shop..... So that is another way you can connect with others 😊

Brands or Small shops will be able to make a post in the group in which they reach out to Bloggers or Influencers to promote their product...... And in the same way Bloggers or Influencers can make a post to reach out to Brands or Small shops..... Post do still need to be approved by me or Marcela..... Who is the moderator of the group 😍

If you are new at blogging or a new influencer and you are looking to give free blog posts in order to grow your audience..... You are welcome to post in the group as well 😍

Good idea?.....Or not?..... What do you think?  😯

Since it is still a pretty new group we only have 189 members as I am writing this blog..... The bigger the group gets the more opportunities it will bring..... So I beg you please please come and join us..... I am not on my knees though because I have a knee prosthesis and can't sit on my knees anymore..... But I hope my begging will suffice 😇

I am also open to all kinds of suggestions on improving this group 😄

So let's get this show on the road and start by joining us..... What have you got to lose ..... And it's completely free of charge 😂

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great day
