2017 Christmas Book Wishlist

Since the addition of a wee girl to our family, our house is now overflowing with toys... I have adopted the popular `want, need, wear, read` system this year to see if it helps! 

Do you know it? Instead of just buying `stuff` for the kids, each person chooses something that the kids want/need/can wear/can read to make the gifts more meaningful!

Since we have grandparents and other relatives all over the world who love gift-giving, I hope this will be useful for them too!

These are some of the books I have put on our Christmas book wishlist for 2017...

The giant jumperee - by Julia Donalson, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury

I am Jim Hensonby Brad Meltzer, illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos

I am Jane Goodallby Brad Meltzer, illustrated by Christopher Eliopoulos


Not quite narwhal - by Jessie Sima

A perfect day - by Lane Smith

We`re all wonders - by R.J. Palacio

... and Jedi Academy - by Jeffrey Brown


For halloween this year, Aiden Emily and I went as characters from Star wars! Can you guess which characters?? Check us out!

I absolutely love buying books and reading them to my kids. But buying English books in Japan is difficult (and very expensive). The range is limited, especially if you live outside a large city. I shop online at the Book Depository because they have an amazing selection of books for everyone in the family AND they ship FREE to Japan. Check out the links above!

Happy shopping, and reading!
