After the success of our Brutally Honest Book Titles blog we decided to play around with children’s titles as well. Kids can be brutally honest themselves so it is almost poetic to shine that honest light on to their classic stories.
The eight titles below have had their titles removed and had a bit of harsh reality in its place. If you have any more ideas for brutally honest book titles- do let us know!
Garner Beggs, co-owner of the Duchess Bakeshop in Edmonton, CA, created the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry out of gingerbread in the hopes that the amazing piece will encourage people to donate to a good cause. Inspired by Dobby the House-Elf who was granted freedom after being given a sock, Beggs is supporting The Bissell Centre charity who help people out of poverty. Residents of Edmonton are encouraged to donate socks to become in with a chance of helping to demolish the delicious building.
The winner of the gingerbread school will be announced after January 13th 2019.
Comedian and actor Rob Delaney (Catastrophe, Deadpool 2), had learned Makaton for his son Henry who was diagnosed with a brain tumour as a baby. Sadly Henry passed away in 2018 age 2 and a half, but Rob, with the help of CBeebies, honours him by showing how inclusive and accessible Makaton can be.
Check out the sweet CBeebies story told by Rob Delaney himself using Makaton sign language. The story is Ten in the Bed, written and illustrated by Penny Dale.
This weekend we’re going to feature all three lists to give you some recommendations. Today we have the kids list ranging from picture books to middle-grade fiction, graphic novels, folklore & fairy tales, poetry, and nonfiction.
Broadhursts of Southport is an independent bookshop situated in Merseyside, NW England, where each book is individually selected based on its own merit. The Pitkin children’s biography of William the Conqueror was stocked in the 1990s by 84-year-old Marie, who now works part time, and they never lost faith the book would sell.
The first Diary of a Wimpy Kid book made its debut in 2004 and has since evolved into a series that now spans 13 books which are available across 140 countries. The cartoon artwork and handwritten font follows a middle-scholar named Greg and his best friend Rowley. The books follow their adventures whilst also aiming to encourage young children, particularly boys, to read.
