Stuart The Bug Eating Man

No I'm not going to write about a man named Stuart who eats bugs. Ok I suppose I kind of am writing just that. You may have seen a previous post which was a review of a book called the monster book of numbers well the lovely people over at my little big town also sent this great book called Stuart the bug eating man. I thought maybe Jared would be too little to enjoy this but I was wrong he loved it, and I must admit I also really enjoyed it. The story is off a man who eats bugs, it is written in a rhyming way which I really enjoyed as you can get into a really good rhythm when reading out aloud. This is the synopsis of the book which is the back of the book to you and me. 

 Stuart would eat bugs, 
with his fork and with his knife, 
Much to the disgust, 
of Harriet his wife.

He'd munch them, and crunch them, 
legs and all. 
While they'd wriggle and squirm
and scurry and crawl 

Each page of the book has a lovely picture to accompany the story. The pictures are in black and white which I think makes it a bit better and not too distracting if you are reading to your child (must add Jared pointed a few times saying "whas sasst" meaning what is that). The story actually reminded me of a poem I liked as a child called 'Please Mrs Butler' I'm sure most of you have heard of that. I have one more little book left to tell you about but first I must finish reading it and get the girls to tell me what they thought about it. So keep your eyes open and the blog bookmarked.

Taj Aloe Vera Drink Review

Hi, I recently tried Taj Aloe Vera Drinks, If you haven't heard of it then let me describe it, Its a low sugar drink that not only gives you energy but also helps detoxify your body and boosts your immune system. I tried two flavours, Original and Strawberry. I had never really heard of this company or their product before nor have a really seen them in the shops but I will definitely be keeping my eye out for their products in future and recommending them to my friends and family. They both have a very distinct taste which I found extremely refreshing, the kind of drink you would want on a hot summers day. Both have aloe vera pulp in them. Before I tried it I was thinking the same as what most of you are thinking now. The thought of "ergh aloe vera bits in my drink" But the pulp and pulp juices compliments taste of the liquid. A little bit like fresh fruit juice has bits of pulp in them. My personal favourite was the Strawberry flavour. The taste was not overpowering to you could drink lots of it without it becoming too sweet and on the other side it wasn't too weak. The Original flavour was a taste I have never really tasted before. The initial taste was in my opinion quite sharp, but as I drank more of a mixed fruit taste. I know it probably isn't supposed to be that was the taste I was getting. Overall though I thought these product exceeded my expectations, As I said at the start of this review I will seriously be looking for these drinks in future. It is very rare that you find something that not only taste good but is also healthy, refreshing and low price
