Word of the Week 4/3/16

Hello and welcome to Word of the Week!

If you’re new here, Word of the Week is a nice and simple weekly linky, with everyone welcome to pop by and share. You reflect back on the past week and sum it up in one word. Then share your word with us in a blog post, with as little or as much explanation as you like. It’s a fun and friendly linky, so please do be lovely and visit as many of the other blogs as you can and share with them your thoughts on their words and weeks. I do comment on every entry to the linky, and if you add the Word of the Week badge to your post to help spread the ‘word’, I also tweet them out.

My word of the week this week is:

books wotw

Ah, a favourite word of mine! And this week it has to be my word because…

My daughter has a homework project to do over the next term at school. She needs to choose any country in the world and put together a little booklet about it. She’s chosen to write about China, and so she was at the library over the weekend looking for books for her research, and it gave us an opportunity to talk about non-fiction books, library sections, contents and index pages, the lot. Oh, and of course, China!

I sent my book swap and I have received my fabulous book swap – the very best kind of post, I think.

I’ve been reading. Kind of goes without saying I know, but along with my fiction, I’ve been throwing myself into my studies so that I can get ahead a little giving myself enough time to do some wider reading around my current module.

At nursery this week Little Man was given the opportunity to make a bookmark and go and choose a book from their library. We’ve read that book each day since, even though it’s actually a book that Boo already owns!

Yesterday was World Book Day. My girl was so excited to go as Alice in Wonderland, and Little Man and I really enjoyed the school run, spotting all of the different characters that walked by us. Maybe next year I’ll get dressed up, too?!

What about you? What one word sums up your week best?

    1. She’s really enjoying her project, it was lovely that she could choose anywhere, so she’s now throwing herself into it!

  1. This year little T’s class didn’t require the kids to dress-up for world book day. Was really disappointed because we were prepared for the very first time. Her current favourite book right now is the Harper and the Scarlet umbrella. She loves Harper and wanted to go as Harper which wasn’t really a difficult character to dress up in 😉 Ordered everything online and then, come world book day pfft! Oh well. Boo looks so cute in her Alice in Wonderland outfit 🙂 x #wotw

  3. Great word and what a great project!
    Your daughter looks lovely in her outfit.
    I think with Boo he could own 10 of the same.book but the prospect of going to the library and having that is a real motivator to get him to what to read X #wotw

  4. Ah what a lovely costume, I just love books and their power to transport you to another world, country or era. Its wonderful to see your children develop a love a literature too isn’t it?

  5. There wasn’t any sort of World Book Day celebration at my son’s school. I was part relieved that I didn’t need to make an outfit (although he would have gone as Darth Vader, i’m sure of that), but also part upset for him that he didn’t get to have the fun experience of the day. Thanks so much for hosting #wotw – sorry I’m only now commenting, I’ve been having major laptop issues this week. xxx
