Today is International Children’s Book Day and we, in boboli, would also like to contribute with our grain of sand. It is a great day celebrated the world over when different initiatives are launched to foster the habit of reading in children. The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) has been in charge of promoting this day from 1967 onwards. It coincides with the birthday of the Danish writer, Hans Christian Andersen.
A story is a text that explains a tale through its main characters with a sudden final ending. There are all types: of exploration, discovery, to split your sides with laughter, to weep inconsolably, to frighten… When children write their first lines or mini story, they move a step ahead in their development and growth. They learn to reflect, put their ideas in order and ask themselves questions on concrete things.
It’s here! Today’s Father’s Day and we have the great opportunity to demonstrate all the love and affection we feel for him. A father is someone who protects you, understands when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules and feels genuinely proud of you when you are successful. But, above all, whatever your need may be he is always there to help you without asking for anything in return.
Are books a matter of love at first sight for you? Do you spend hours lost in the adventures of your favourite characters? Classic children’s literature is a must in all homes where there are children because it helps them stretch their imagination and daydream. There are countless protagonists you can disguise yourself as, but in boboli we have selected four that will inspire you to carry on cultivating the magic of reading at home.
Making the bed can be a real adventure: an improvised pillow fight, bouncing to the rhythm of rock and roll, preparations for a slumber party… Creating a real refuge for your children will make sure they enjoy it, and it will motivate them to take responsibility for keeping it tidy. Today on the boboli blog, we’re giving you some ideas for decorating this magic space.
Final preparations for New Year’s Eve. Today we propose spending a great Sunday finishing up the details and decoration for your New Year’s party. Getting your whole family involved can be loads of fun. Sunday fun day, words to live by! Are you in?
