Bookbuggy Book Subscriptions for Little Bookworms

Bookbuggy Book SubscriptionsI cannot stress just how much Roo and I love books. Reading for us is part of our daily routine. It is built into bedtimes and we have great fun in choosing our daily story, settling down at the end of the day and reading a new adventure together. When we’re out of books we have a game where we make up our own stories and it’s wonderful to watch Roo’s imagination come to life as she creates a fantasy world of pirates, aliens and daring rescues.
