Battle with the girls over brushing their teeth and completing their other bathroom bedtime business. Briskly move things to Rainbow’s bedroom, where we burrow in the bedsheets and enjoy a chapter from our latest book. Baum brings us to back to Oz as little sister bounces in and out of the room.
In case curiosity is bugging you, and you’re too bashful to ask: Rainbow and I are working through Baum’s original Oz series for a second time, and we’re close to finishing book number nine: The Scarecrow of Oz. While Rocket’s current favourites include; Time for Bed by Mem Fox, Can You See a Little Bear? by James Mayhew and Jackie Morris and Sandra Boyton’s Belly Button Book.
