20160712_223658 (572x640)

One day, as Marvin watches his friends, he decides that he wants to be the biggest and the best sheep around. But how will Marvin get bigger and bigger? He’ll eat, of course.

Marvin doesn’t just eat a little, he eats A LOT. And the bigger he gets, the bigger he feels, so Marvin just wants MORE and MORE! He eats the flowers, grass, bushes and trees – he even eats the whole world!

Suddenly Marvin realises that he’s all alone. He’s eaten everything and, instead of making him feel better, it had only made him feel worse. So how will Marvin’s world get back to the way ot was before?

A brilliantly funny picture book about jealousy and friendship.

I Spy With My Little Eye...

…Something beginning with T.

Yes, that’s right, Teddy.

We go to the kitchen. Teddy’s there.

We go to the bathroom. Teddy’s there.

We get into bed. Teddy’s there.

We chill in the garden. Teddy’s there.

We go out. Teddy is with us.

I’m starting to think this thing is alive!

What's Going on Here?

Max and I were setting up to water the flowers, when we spotted a thirsty cat through a window.

Here’s a closer look.

Such a cute sight.

Of course, we let him finish drinking first, then continued with our task.

My Review:

What can I say? And a classic story which pretty much everyone loves, from children to adults.

Yesterday, Max and I decided together, we were going to partake in an Act of Kindness.

It was an incredibly hot day here in London, so after we went to buy ice cream and ice lollies, we rushed home to put them in the freezer before they melted. En route, I noticed a number of workmen, varying from BT engineers to scaffolders.

Max was overheating a little; he was turning red. So once back home, he rested for a bit to cool down. Afterwards, I had a chat with him about doing something good. He agreed, so I rubbed sun lotion on him and off we went, armed with bottles of water to give out to the workmen, to help them to stay hydrated.

I strongly believe a child’s home environment has the biggest influence – especially in the early years. The more we teach our children to be kind to everyone, the more the world will become a better place for them to grow, and to enjoy life.

Below are his current favourites, especially the first one. It reminds me of a clip Max and I recently watched, sent from the delightful, Derrick. Tee hee!
