More books from the Naughtiest Girl series were left along Masters Avenue yesterday as a part of our final book drop for Children's Week . . . About the Book The Naughtiest Girl Series by Enid Blyton Spoilt rotten and dreadfully selfish, Elizabeth Allen is a young lady who doesn't like anyone or anything, that is, except getting into trouble and causing mischief. From the author of The Famous Five, The Secret Seven and Malory Towers - the wonderful Enid Blyton - our 10-book The Naughtiest Girl Collection is essential reading for fans of Blyton and children aged 9 and above who are yet to be introduced to her wonderful writing. In The Naughtiest Girl in the School, only child Elizabeth is sent away to boarding school after tormenting her governess with such tricks as hiding earwigs in her bed. Once she arrives she decides to become the naughtiest pupil the school has ever seen. But will living up to this decision be as easy as she first thought...? Follow Elizabeth in this wonderful collection as she tries to come good; fights the urge to be bad when she is handed the responsible job of school monitor; attends camp with the horrible Arabella, in the same tent no less; stars in the school summer play and much, much more. A timeless set of children's stories from an author who has touched the hearts of readers for over half a century, this collection contains Enid Blyton's four original novels and the brilliant continuation of the series by the talented Anne Digby. . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #bedtimestories #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #panmacmillan #enidblyton #thenaughtiestgirl

For our final book drop to wrap up children's week, we picked a spot where kids from not one, not two but three schools often walk by. That's right, along the sidewalk where Master's Avenue meets Silverdale Road, we left an array of books right before the school bells went off. . . . About the Book The Naughtiest Girl Again by Enid Blyton The naughtiest girl in the school is back! And this term she's trying to be good. But someone wants to spoil things for her. And they're not going to let her forget how she got her nickname! . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #schoolstories #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #panmacmillan #naughtiestgirl #enidblyton

Last day of our Children's Week and the fairies have been busy. Today, we decided to head to two schools, the first of which was Frankton School. We left 'The Diary of a Wimpy Kid by @jeffkinney for a lucky kid to find. . . . About the Book Published by @penguinbooksnz the hilarious and original global bestseller Diary of a Wimpy Kid is perfect for readers of 8+ and also reluctant readers, everyone loves the adventures of Greg Heffley. Now a major film series, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul is in cinemas now! Let me get something straight: this is a JOURNAL, not a diary. This was Mom's idea, not mine. But if she thinks I'm going to write down my "feelings" in here or whatever, she's crazy. The only reason I agreed to do this at all is because I figure later on when I'm rich and famous, this book is gonna come in handy. But for now I'm stuck with a bunch of morons. Today is the first day of school, so I figured I might as well write in this book to pass the time. Just don't expect me to be all "Dear Diary" this and "Dear Diary" that. . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #dia#diaryofawimpykid #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #penguinbooksnz #school #diary

By the fence around Melville Primary School, we left 'Here's The Naughtiest Girl' by Enid Blyton. Hopefully a naughty kiddo has found it and taken the Book home. 💚 . . . About the Book A classic school series with timeless appeal - reissued to celebrate Blyton's centenary. There's a new boy in Elizabeth's class. She means to keep her temper with him, but it's not easy for someone who used to be the naughtiest. . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #enidblyton #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #panmacmillan #naughtiestgirl #schoolstories

We sure do hope this copy of 'Simply the Quest' by Maz Evans that we left outside Knighton Normal School has found a loving home. . . . About the Book Elliot Hooper's troubles are far from over: his mum's health worsens, he's struggling at school, and a bunch of anarchic Greek immortals have moved into his home - including teen goddess Virgo, who's in trouble with the Zodiac. What's more, death-daemon Thanatos and his scary mum are at large. As even more immortal allies and enemies emerge, Virgo and Elliot must learn how to be heroes . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #bedtimestories #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #scholasticnz

We think childhood is a pretty magical time and also a time when we can get away with being a little naughty, which is why Magical stories for 6 year olds and Naughtiest Girl Saves the Day was left outside Knighton Normal School for lucky kids to find. 💚 . . . About the Book 1 Naughtiest Girl Saves the Day by Enid Blyton When some school strawberry plants are vandalized, a lost blazer button at the scene of the crime leads straight to the Naughtiest Girl. It is hers, but how did it get there—and why would anyone want to pin the blame on Elizabeth? . . .

There are stories from the past and present, and from around the world. . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #bedtimestories #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #panmacmillan #australia #enidblyton

Three gorgeous books from the First 100 series were left at Hillcrest Kindergartens Waikato earlier today. We couldn't leave them around the kindergarten, at the risk of a munchkin riot and so we left them near the sign out sheets for the lucky tots to grab them on their way out. Thanks a ton @macmillanaus for your generous donation. 💚 . . . #ibelieveinbookfairies #minibookfairies #bookfairieshamilton #hamiltonbookfairies #readhamiltonread #newzealand #waikato #hamiltonnz #childrensday #childrenofinstagram #kidsofig #childrensbook #childliterature #bedtimestories #youngreader #bookstagram #bookworm #bookaddict #kidsbooks #childrensweek #reading #parents #family #freebooks #littlebibliophiles #bookover #goodreads #panmacmillan

Library days are the best. The girls got to enjoy some stories about being kind and then made some cards for Veterans while the boy played and practiced sharing. Then we spent the afternoon with a picnic read aloud session of alllllll the books we brought home 📚❤️ #lib#library/a> #gratefulforpubliclibraries #publiclibrary #storytime #crafttime #library #readaloud #booklovers #littlebibliophiles #hom#homeschool/a> #homeschool #papersnpencils

B.J. Novak has accomplished a magnificent feat. My littles LOVE this book! I mean granted they are easy to please when it comes to books anyway (yay for #youngreaders 🎉) but it's still pretty awesome watching and listening to them use their imaginations and try out different voices to accompany the story. And if that doesn't sway you to pick up a copy, even Riley wanted to check it out {swipe}.

These three got up early to lay with me in bed and finish The Magician's Nephew. We've read all the Narnia books, but somehow skipped this one. It was beautiful reading how Narnia started even after you know the whole story. ********************************* #readaloudrevival #rar31days #notvlife #homeschool #writeyouonmyheart #charlottemasonliving #wildandfreekids #littlebibliophiles

Honestly, this heartwarming sight never gets old 💗📖💗 p.s. Where Are My Books? by Debbie Ridpath Ohi is adorably bookish and perfectly relatable for the little (and *ahem* grown-up) bibliophile who shudders at the thought of losing his/her favourite book(s)! p.p.s. Can someone make Night-Night, Narwhal and narwhal-printed PJs a reality, please? I've got a little narwhal lover who'd love 'em! 😝 #wherearemybooks #debbieridpathohi #simonkids #nightnightnarwhal #ptbooksinbooks #ptbooksonbooks #ptbooksfor3yo #littlebibliophiles #picturebooks #childrensbooks #picturebookjammies #kid#kidlit/a> #kidlit #littlebookworms #littlereaders #kidsbookreview #kidsbookstagram #bigbrothersrock #bedtimestory #picturethisbook

My husband and I accidentally both scheduled doctor's appointments this morning so we had to take kids along! He took Oliver and I took the girls. I told them that if they sat very quietly through the appointment and worked on their homeschooling (tracing letters) they could choose something fun to do afterwards. They chose the library😂👍
