DS#1 is graduating from Primary School this year - yikes!- and the school is holding a Year 6 Graduation dinner.

DS would like to wear an outfit such as long sleeved striped shirt, vest and chinos but I don't know where to start looking.

Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
