I have a lot of questions…
- What happens when we remain open to new experiences?
- Do I have any good tips for anyone who has resolved to get fit?
- What has running got to do with encouraging children to write?
- Are there advantages to reading many books, on the same subject, by different authors?
- Can I recommend some interesting novels to read?
- What do I mean by the words ‘multi-directional learning’?
- Why am I feeling very excited about writing?
- Can I pronounce the word, ‘tomatometer’ or does my tongue get all twisted up?
- Do I say Cartload of Hay instead of Cartload of Clay?
- What do I always do after reading a good book?
- Should we steer our children only towards books that portray the good?
- Should parents preview every book a child wants to read?
- Is there a danger with banning books?
- Can some ‘wrong’ books actually be right?
- Can punctuation rules sometimes be broken?
- Is there a place for quick and easy reads?
- What if kids only want to read easy books with not much literary value?
Two final questions:
Blog posts about running:
Gemma-Rose shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t know. I do read a lot, you know. Maybe I remember what the words look like.”

Teenage Daughters, Books, Movies and Love

Books, Music, Burnout and a Mystery!
I haven’t watched all the mentioned DVD mini-series and movies so I can’t guarantee they are good and ‘appropriate’!
