Quote of the day challenge – Day 3

The final day of my three day quote challenge (thanks Anna)! and my last quote is from another amazingly talented children’s author, Roald Dahl. Dahl was born in Wales in 1916 and initially served time with the Royal Air Force during World War Two. He went on to write books for adults and children and is one of the worlds greatest selling authors to date.

Roald Dahl was my favourite author when I was a little girl and I still love sharing his beautifully written, quirky tales to my daughter. She loves his work as much as me and I believe his stories have fuelled her hunger for reading as she has been growing older. He has peaked a big interest for writing in her, which has seen her writing her own short stories and researching the man himself to find out more about him. I think he has such a superb way of reaching children with funny tales (which can be a little dark at times) but are delivered in such a brilliant, heart – warming way that his stories really appeal to kids.

The quote I have chosen is from his last children’s book, The Minpins. The quote is the very last sentence from the story and I love it! Even though life can throw all sorts at you I always try to believe in goodness and kindness (and a little magic)! In my experience, good attracts good and positivity attracts positivity…….I think people should always look for the unexpected and magical – you never know you may even find it!

Quote of the day challenge – Day 2

My second day of the Three Day Quote Challenge (thanks Anna) and today I have chosen a quote from one of my all time favourite children’s authors, Dr Seuss! Dr Seuss has written a fantastic range of children’s books, all written brilliantly in a way which children love!  

Theodor Seuss Geisel was born in March 1904 and wrote under his pen name Dr Seuss. He started working as an illustrator before writing his first childrens book in 1937 titled “And to Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street”.  My two children love his (sometimes odd but incredibly endearing) stories and I love how he encourages kids to be themselves and to be individual. Such an important message to try and teach our children.

I love this quote as it holds a message very close to my heart. I feel we should never be scared to say how we feel and this is something I encourage my kids to do to. Never be worried about saying how you feel and always be yourself!

Quote of the day challenge – Day 1

Recently I was nominated to take part in the Three Day Quote Challenge by the lovely Anna at Life Bellissima. If you have not yet visited Anna’s beautiful blog, I highly recommend that you do! I really look forward to reading her posts and she has some lovely recipes to try too! Thank you Anna for the nomination (and for being such a lovely person)! I feel honoured to have found you and your blog.

The quote I have chosen for today is from MaryAnn F.Kohl. MaryAnn is an author who writes books about art for children of various ages. She believes that art is not just about the end product, but the whole process, which as many of my followers will already know, is also a huge belief of mine!

I love this quote as I truly believe that art plays a huge part in children’s development and is indeed vital. It helps build imagination and creativity, as well as self – confidence and individuality (to name but a few)! I encourage my children to use their own ideas in their art and I love seeing their pride whilst they are creating! I think a world where children cannot express their-selves throughout art would be a very sad, uniformed world indeed. We need to ensure that our schools and child care provisions continue to allow art and creativity, and not just focus on the more academic subjects!
