  2. I stumbled across Simpson and his Donkey in a bookshop last year. What a find! I will enjoy searching for the other books on your list Jeanne, thanks!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
