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) enjoy 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 left mainstream education in March 2017 and will be home-educated until September 2018, which means we have stepped into the realm of home-schooling. It is an exciting adventure that we share with my younger daughter as much as we can! For my younger daughter school remains a positive and supportive environment; she loves school every single day!

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