We love sharing a kids book and today we have a review for Now That You’re Here by Kate Staves

My Review

So excited to be able to share this gorgeous story for our younger readers. Now That You’re Here is a positive story full of positive messages to reinforce just how loved and wanted our little people are.

Every page starts with Now That You’re Here and carries a positive message which is attached to a beautiful illustration of various animals that are always popular favourites with children. You feel how important the child is through the words, yet it keeps it fun and meaningful for the little reader as well.

I loved reading this and would definitely buy as both a gift for parents to be as well as for children who have just started their reading journey and are keen to curl up and learn with Mum or Dad each night.

Daisy & Kel x



I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
