If you already have an account, make sure you update your blogs list incase you have started following more since you joined up.
To import the blogs you follow in Goggle reader to BlogLovin' go to and follow the steps. Easy!

Although I am a long way from the start of the year here I thought I would link up to share some of my favourite start of the year stories!

We always start the year talking about our holidays. I Magic Beach by Alison Lester & Looking for Crabs by Brace Whatley are some of my favourite's.

We also talk about our classroom rules, our differences & looking after others. Giaraffe's Can't Dance is great for talking about our strengths and how it is important that we are each different.

I always read Too Loud Lily by Sophie Laguna to focus on how we are all different and also the different noise levels accepted in the class. 

I have loved reading everyone else's favourite books. I now have a huge wishlist for next year.
