Amelia’s “Easter Basket”, is more of an “Easter Bucket”, but she is still so small,has no idea what Easter is,has never had chocolate or sweeties, (and I’d like to keep it that way for as long as possible),and she has has just got a playroom full of toys for her birthday recently. So,I’m keeping her Easter treats small this year.

Some little chocolate eggs (mummy & daddy will eat them)
Lastly a book.I looked around our local book shops for an Easter themed book,but could not find one.Instead, I chose this lovely book,written in Irish (Gaelige), our national language.I thought it would be a lovely introduction to the language for Amelia.
Is Geal Liom Sibh go Leir (You’re. All My Favourites),by Sam McBratney & Anita Jeram. This is a
gorgeous, reassuring story about three little bear siblings, who one day begin to wonder how they can ALL be the “most wonderful bears in the whole wide world” to their parents? Mummy Bear and Daddy Bear must set about reassuring their three little bears – who are all different – that each one of them is equally special and equally loved. A winning combination of irresistibly soothing storytelling and warm, playful watercolour art makes this a quintessential picture book for families who wish to read and learn Irish together.
