5 Brilliant Books 7 Year Old Girls Will Enjoy Reading

Today I am going to be writing about 5 Brilliant Books 7 Year Old Girls Will Enjoy Reading. That is for girls like me. I really like reading and read before bed and also to my mum. I also do a reading club at school where I help others to read better.

The first Book is Matilda by Roald Dahl. It is about a girl that goes to school and she and she knows stuff all off by heart. Also a little girl called Amanda that is one of her friends she got pulled over the fence by her pigtails and it was by Miss Trunchball.

My second favourite book is the Wondrous World of Erin. I love this book because it says my name there’s a little bit of letters that are lost I need to find all of them so I can find a hole of my name. I also love it because it kind of just looks like me.

My next book is Alice in Wonderland . It’s amazing when Alice falls down the tunnel. My favourite character is white rabbit.

My next book is George ‘s marvellous medicine I like it because grandma goes flying. Also some stuff that was in the medicine was shoe polish,mouth wash,soap but most of all brown paint because the medicine is brown.

Last book is the Monkey Puzzle because a monkey lost its mum and a butterfly kept on getting the wrong animal like elephant and every animal in the jungle.

Related to this post is  Thrifty World Book Day Costume Ideas and Roald Dahl Budget Costume Ideas.  Erin enjoys reading a wide range of books and is a very confident reader.  

  • To encourage children to read we suggest have plenty of books available.  
  • Secondly join a library and see what reading challenges they have on offer.
  • Model good reading habits let children see you read too.

Summertime Capital Ball 2017 Erin saw her Favourite Acts

We were recently invited to The Summer Time Capital Ball which was sponsored by Vodafone. We first went last year and it was Erin’s first experience of a concert. She absolutely loved it and has asked so many times if we could go back! Luckily we were invited back!  Here Erin describes her day at the  Summertime Capital Ball 2017  in her own words.

Last weekend we went to summertime capital ball in London. It was at Wembley. I went with my mum, my sister Chloe and her friend. It was a long drive because the traffic was bad.

After going to our hotel we got a taxi to Wembley. We also went into the Vodafone tent and we had a selfie with props. When we got there we had glitter all over our eyes. Our seats were really good because we saw the stage.

Some of my favourite singers were Rag’n’Bone Man, Olly Murs and Little Mix. .Rag’n ‘bone man was amazing because it was loud not to loud but loud. We stayed in a lovely hotel it was quite small but it was okay. I was wearing jeans and a gem T-shirts. It was so hot but nice.

We would like to thank Vodafone for the tickets for the event. It remains as one of out highlights of the blogging year!

Our Tips for Visiting

  • Our tips are to get there early to enjoy all the outside entertainment and fun put on by Vodafone.
  • You can take food into the event although there is plenty on sale inside.
  • Our tip is also to stay in Ealing somewhere and then taxi to Wembley it is really easy and saved us time.
  • Take clothing for all weather as it does get cooler late into the evening.
  • Pre book your transport back home if you can, getting a taxi afterwards was hard work.

Why Erin Loves Dancing

Today Erin is sharing how much she loves dancing which is one of her favourite things to do.  

I’ve been dancing since I’ve been six years old. I do ballet tap and modern and it’s really fun. My favourite might be modern or Ballet because ballet is really slow and relaxing and modern is really fun.

Not so long ago I had a ballet exam which I was a little nervous about. But it was quite fun. You have to wear a red tutu because it’s an exam costume. You have to have a nice bun for your hair so it will not be really scruffy.

My teacher Claire tells me what to do and there is an examiner in the room who watches us.We also have a little groups.

When I was 6 I was in the Wednesdays but now I’m in the Saturday mornings . I was overjoyed after and now I’m waiting what grades I get.

I love dance and when my dad gets back from work I show him a little dance.

*Update* Dancing for Erin is a huge achievement after having hip dysplasia and having lots of surgery. Yesterday I was overwhelmed and very emotional to learn that Erin actually got a distinction in this first exam.  It just shows that children with ddh can go on and achieve remarkable things. I am so grateful to the consultants and specialists who have put Erin back together and fixed her hip.    

Wind in Willows at the Everyman Theatre, Cheltenham

Erin and mum were invited to see Wind in the Willows at Cheltenham.  It was a performance by Box Tale Soup, who specialise in a unique blend of puppetry, physical theatre and traditional performance, Here are Erin’s thoughts on the performance.

Yesterday I went to the Everyman Theatre to see Wind in the Willows. I thought it was really entertaining because it was puppets that they played with. I thought it was really cool that a girl made all of the puppets! Some of my favourite parts were the mice were singing I found it really cute. Another one is when moley got lost in the wild woods! My last one is when two of the mice lost their little mouse.My favourite character was moley and badger because moley is a little bit scared and badger is brave. So thank you every man’s theatre for sending me there!

I like going to the theatre because you can see it in real life so I like it a lot.

So I think the ages should be 3-9 for children.

Disclosure:  We we gifted press tickets for the show.
