I was first introduced to theMy Talking Pet App some years back by my wonderful friendDeb McEwan author and dog lover. It was so much fun to see her beloved rescue dog Sandy telling us all about the new book she features in ‘The Island Dog Squad’ it was a barrel of laughs. I simply had to download the app for my phone.
Now Miss Ruby Heart uses the app to tell us all about her mini book reviews and her friends have joined in to share a few jokes and funnies. We hope you enjoy them.
If you have any jokes drop them below in the comments, and we will see if one of Ruby’s talking animal friends can read it out for you. Don’t forget the pages are aimed at children and younger readers, or those simply young at heart. Clean jokes only please.
Ten Little Dogs is a beautifully illustrated count-down book featuring ten utterly gorgeous puppies. We see them at play, enjoying a meal, and having a snooze. They are adventurous and inquisitive, mischievous and full of boundless energy. There are all sorts of breeds and Sam and I had lots of fun choosing our favourite pups.
As the book counts down from ten to one, it introduces the concept of one less. The clever use of rhyme and page turn will help children guess then learn which number comes next. Each page has a spot the difference element too as you look to see which dog is missing.
The book is lots of fun because of the puppies’ playful antics. We frequently see them getting into trouble: they are chased by bees, drenched by a hose and one even gets stuck between two trees.
I just discovered this wonderful Kickstarter Campaign for ‘Milk and Cookies’ by Emma Rosen a sweet picture book that explains breastfeeding in an accessible way for small children. What a unique idea.This beautiful book informs while leaving space for families to have their own conversations. It’s not just for families who are already comfortable talking about breastfeeding, it’s for any little one with questions.

The real Daisy
In 1987 the real Daisy was given a new lease of life when she was repainted with popular Nursery Rhyme characters for the children to enjoy and sing along.
The brightly decorated exterior would attract the attention of the children and get them running along to play and explore inside.
The playbus was a very popular and much-loved venue for a playgroup and fondly remembered.
Oh, we have exciting news for you #BookLovers. We have created a delightful #ChristmasAdventCalendar to celebrate reading children’s books #BookAdvent click on the image to visit. Just remember there is no peeking until the actual day is here.
So throughout December we will reveal a different children’s book behind each door. Many of these you may not have heard of as they are by very talented #IndieAuthors who struggle to self-promote. We are therefore here to #SpreadTheWord and show some love on their behalf.
Also behind each door, there will be a link after the image to take you to our #Facebook party page where you will be able to find out more about the author of the book on that day. There will be fun, games, Christmas carols, the odd joke and perhaps a giveaway or two.
