About me

I decided to start this blog to share how I, as a reader with a huge interest in history and children’s books (I have a PhD. in Children’s Literature) share books, history, art and exploring the world generally with my children. We love reading (together and individually) and when we aren’t reading we love going out to visit the countryside, museums, historical sites, places to eat and bookshops. We also love having a go at crafts at home. My elder daughter has just left mainstream education and will be home-educated for the next year or so, which means we are now stepping into the new realm of home-schooling. We are really excited to see what opportunities this brings us!

I really hope you enjoy Breathing In Books. I’d love to hear from you!
