About Me

Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Angelique and I am a mum and teacher. I am married to my best friend in the whole world, Vince! We made two incredible boys who bring us so much joy each day. We have a Spoodle named Henry and he’s a cheeky dog to say the least! We love to travel and have spent our whole relationship exploring the world. We are both avid readers and own so many books we have no idea where to put them!

I have spent some time away from the classroom, taking time out to be with my boys. Being a mum is the best job yet! Even though I am thoroughly enjoying my time at home, I am looking forward to working in the classroom part time from here on in.  The challenges and successes of the classroom are addictive… and this Blog helps me express my love for learning and continue to support my community by sharing my knowledge.

Learning is my life! In fact, I’m obsessed by it! I became a teacher because I love learning so much. I love PLAY and its ability to get the minds of little people ticking! I also love reading picture story books, and I have seen first hand their capacity to enhance the learning and engagement of children.

In this blog I share my love and knowledge of early learning in a few different ways.

  1. I’ll share with you some quality picture books that are either new releases or old classics! Books with great ideas, language or illustrations are the best kind! I’ll even add in some tips for reading with the hashtag #tipsforlittlereaders and some story related follow up activities #beyondthebook
  2. I will share any great early learning activities, all PLAY based, that will enhance the thinking and learning skills of your little ones. They will have a range of focuses like counting, shapes, fine motor skills, gross motor skills and problem solving. Sensory play, in particular, is a hit in this house so you’ll see a bunch of that too.
  3. Finally I will share our thoughts, ideas, philosophies on life raising our boys. We try our best to be conscious and considered parents, making mindful choices for them everyday.

If you have any questions or ideas for this space please just shoot me an email. Head to my contact page for details.

Come along for the ride with me, into the magical world of early learning, kid lit play and LIFE.

Happy reading and playing!
