Here's a sneak peak at the 108th Annual Exhibition of Contemporary Art, "Children's Book Illustrations: Visual Storytelling." Today's featured artwork is an illustration by Larry Day from the book "Found." We'll feature a work by each of our six artists between now and the opening of the exhibition on Friday, Sept. 20. Join us for a free opening reception from 5-7 p.m. with refreshments, cash bar (beer/wine) and a cookie bar for the kids!
Do you remember the competition I ran for my birthday in August? The lucky winner received their book bundle this week - I got to deliver the package personally to the family which was a really heart-warming experience as they had just come back from their first day at preschool and tucking in to some yummy dinner!
The books were chosen carefully following a long dialogue with Mummy who told me all the things her little one loved - so I then researched and worked my sparkly Phonics Stars Bexley and Greenwich magic and found the best 6 books that matched his interests, and a whole lot more!
At Phonics Stars, we advocate a love of reading. Across our network, we have leaders who run book clubs, are involved in hunt the book activities in their local communities, do live book readings in the evenings like I do every Friday night at 6.30. We read a book together and enjoy some cosy time with our families and friends at the end of every Phonics Stars Bexley and Greenwich session - Reading and the enjoyment of it is heavily promoted across our brand.
So it gives me great pleasure to know I’ve gifted this gorgeous and personalised book bundle to this lovely family and I can’t wait to see and hear how they are loving their reading together.
You know when you are trying to promote reading and you say, “It’s like you’re actually IN the book as you read?!” and some kids get it and others look at you confused as they’ve never experienced that? This brand new children’s book is PERFECT for showing kids how this can happen! The book begins by showing a little girl who lives in a world with boundaries. She has heard of “freedom machines” so she sets out to find one “just right” for her. There is symbolism and rich vocabulary throughout this beautifully simple book. When the girl finds her own freedom machine she flies to different places that she never would be able to do without her “freedom machine”. What a great way to celebrate the joy of reading! The Incredible Freedom Machines Book Unit is available now for 50% off for the first 24 hours. Link for unit and book in profile.

Allah is Al-Ghafur (The Oft-Forgiving, The Forgiver of Sins and Faults, The Perfectly Forgiving, The Pardoner)
The One who completely forgives our sins and faults.
The One who accepts repentance and pardons sins and faults.
The One who veils or forgives our faults and sins such that they are not seen by anyone else, not even the angels.
The One who is the perfection of forgiveness.
The One whose forgiving demonstrates excellence, completeness and perfection of forgiveness.
Ya Allah! Forgive us our shortcomings and have mercy upon us, and hide our faults both in this world and on the Day of Judgement for your the Oft-Forgiving, The hider of faults. Amin.

Hiding in the Laisterdyke area of Bradford...will you find Mog?! 🧚♀️📖 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚 About the book: “One day Mog did not want to eat her supper…” And it was snowing and Mr Thomas was cross at having to do the bin bags. Who would have thought that all this would lead to three foxes in Mog’s kitchen?
I was inspired to write this story when my oldest daughter came home from school upset because her friend could no longer spend the night. The kids didn’t understand why this was a big deal. The adults made it a big deal once they learned their child would be going to a home with two moms. Seeing my daughter upset and question why anyone would care that she has two moms was heartbreaking.
“So, Eee-Moo the emu, who was actually a platypus, set off on his journey to Australia, land of the emu – home to Eee-Moo?” Really enjoyed illustrating planes, trains, and automobiles. Fun fact: 80% of this book was illustrated on the iPad Pro during my train commute to and from work and evenings at home. #kidlitart#childrensbooks#illustration

There are many Paddington adaptations and editions now, so I wanted to go back to the first, original story and illustrations, to see what lies at the heart of this classic and loved character.
Right at the start, Paddington, with no home or relatives in England, is taken in and accepted by the Brown family as one of their own. This alone is a heartwarming and timeless message. Bond writes with such humour too.
The stories that follow show Paddington himself as extremely endearing and cute as he innocently and accidentally gets into trouble or an odd situation - often just trying to help and sometimes with hilarious effect.
However, there are some inspired moments - like Paddington sitting on the floor drawing a map using shaving cream, or his painting winning a prize, that show just how clever and creative he actually is.
Although I love the notion alone that Paddington, as a bear, is a member of the family, at the heart of these stories is how the Brown family respects Paddington trying his best in any given situation.
This book made me smile. #childrensbooks#lovebooks

Surround yourself with good people, and you will look good. I am so happy to be in studio with award-winning children’s author Tololwa Mollel and his wife Obianuju. Phil of Powersound made the recording process a blast. We will post details closer to the release date, but for now we can say that we are working on a children’s book with music. Exciting times! @philsmix#childrensbooks#childrensliterature#childrensmusic#musiceducation#pinchmyself
