Living Arrows 11/53 – Baba is reading

If you follow us on Instagram (nearly 10K so if you are not yet, give us a follow now! Merci!), you will see that the lovely Sue Hendra and Paul Linnet sent us their new picture book called ‘Cake’.

Baba was quick to put his hands on it to check it out.

Quick! Let’s have a drink and I am off to read this!

We won’t tell you the story. Just be aware that it is super sweet and we love it. What is it not to love when it’s about cake!?

Usually, I prefer eating them but reading about them is cool too!

And I love seeing my Baba so studious!

    Reading about cake is less calorific of course but a treat now and then does no harm. Reading however nourishes the brain for life.
