I discovered an amazing website that sells loads of English books, learning to read books, activity books etc at a great price. The best deals are when you buy sets, so you can get 10 great books for 10 pounds! So a pound a book, which is amazing! Some sets we have bought and loved are Julia Donaldson books, Elmer, Paddington. We also bought phonics, learning to read sets etc. The website is The Book People. I am not sure where they deliver to (other then the UK where we are based, but check it out). If they don't deliver to you, keep this in mind if you ever travel to London, then you can order. www.thebookpeople.co.uk
Does anyone know if there is a French equivalent? I would love to be able to get some good deals on French books. I spend LOADS now on French books.
Also, if there are other websites you know of for different languages, it might help others who are looking for good deals on books, so post them as well.
You may already have come across this, but if you are in London you could have a look at La Librairie in Hammersmith (lalibrairielondres.com/) which is apparently exclusively for second-hand French language books (and sweets, but hopefully they aren't second-hand! ). Bit of a trek for us from Bristol but quite near the in-laws so I'm planning a side trip already!
Amy: And to all other fellow zookeepers of course!

Wojtek: Yesterday my daughter used a Polish word in an English sentence. From time to time she does it (don't know if I should be happy about that), but anyway what was amusing about that, she said it with an English accent!

Wojtek: I feel the English accent in our monolingual family has seemed to be something unreachable but in that mixed sentence, I heard the difference. It surprised me slightly.

Mayken: Adam Beck, Amy, she got a lot of ml exposure but there's only so many times I can watch a Bibi & Tina DVD. Glad she's back at school today.

Mayken: My daughter's school had the annual lantern pageant yesterday. It always moves me to tears when I see the kids stand and belt out the songs in our ml. This year, the ml kids also recited a short poem on St Martin.
