Disney Junior's The Book of Once Upon A Time

As you will know and have read several posts on my blog before. Story time is something very important to us as a family and for development skills with our little blossom Niah.

Our normal nightly routine with Niah is usually dinner, a small play, bath time and then it’s bedtime with quiet time which we usually use to read one or two stories with Niah. We have read to Niah since she was born every night as it’s something we enjoy. Storytelling and reading books is an important part of Niah’s bedtime ritual for us, it allows us to come together one last time at night as a family and share some moments.

Disney Junior are bringing back the beloved Disney Junior Magical Storytelling with the second season of ‘’The Book of Once Upon A Time’, where we will hear all new stories hosted by Australian actor and playwright Kate Mulvany.

The Book of Once Upon A Time” launched with the start of Book Week on Monday 24th August at 7:10pm on Disney Junior The Channel, available to Foxtel subscribers on channel 709 or you can watch anytime on their website.

For us this timing works perfectly, as 7pm is generally a time that we are settling down, finishing in the bath and getting ready to lay Niah down into her bed.

Disney Junior are inviting parents to settle down with their children to tune in at 7:10pm which you can share a special moment with your little one every night around bedtime. The lullaby ‘Land of Once Upon A Time’ will then follow on from each episode, encouraging children to prepare for bedtime.

Something I like about programs such as ‘Disney Junior’s The Book of Once Upon A Time’ is that it is bringing storytelling to life. Children are getting a vision of what is actually happening within the book and have someone reading it to them whilst having some educational TV watching. Character voices,re-enactment and classic touches of animation will ignite your child’s imagination in a different way over a book in front of them.

Disney Junior's animated and live action programming blends Disney's unparalleled storytelling and beloved characters with learning components, including early language and maths skills, as well as healthy lifestyles, with an emphasis on social and emotional development.

The Book of Once Upon A Time features Disney stories that are available as eBooks from the Disney Story Central app, available to download from iTunes.

Where have I been? [LIFE POST]

I'm so sorry for neglecting the blog and not being around since my last post 3 weeks ago.
It has been a real whirl wind of crazy busy madness but I want to fill you in on all the goss as to what went on.

1. I was back working both days on the weekend and having Wednesday/Thursday as my days off so I was spending most of my down time with the family and getting out. Who likes staying in on there days off? Not this chick.

2. Bloggers United AU just had there first Perth event. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make it due to work commitments and I'm super sad. We had a full house sell out event and it just looked to have been amazing day. The lead up to the event is crazy busy whilst we finalised all details.

3. I've started vlogging - for those who don't know what vlogging is, it is basically blogging but by video taping myself and uploading it to YouTube.
This is something huge as you are really putting yourself out there. You can't hide yourself, and who you are as a person. Why did I start vlogging? If you watch my first video here it will explain why - I'm time poor and this was something much easier and quicker. I'm still perfecting the text in videos and need to work on a backdrop but hey I'm a L plater.

4. I've become a KFit Brand Ambassador - KFit are a one membership that entitles you to go to many fitness and wellness facilities around you. They are all around the world. I'll be posting a video shortly going into more detail.

5. Niah is about to turn 2. I cannot believe how quickly two beautiful years with my little chick have flown past. Planning parties and all things that come along with birthdays take a lot of time and thought to organise. I can't wait to be able to share this memory with you all.

6. I'm taking on Maxine's Challenge round 2 for 2015. Last time I gave it after about 4 weeks, what I did do within that time and until now was drop 6kgs and keep it off. I learnt more about my training and about food intake. Every single day my knowledge of healthy living is widened and I'm just loving being in such a happier place as I look at my body and see changes within myself.

I think I have caught you up to speed now but keep posted via my blog, most importantly subscribe to my YouTube channel and follow me on social media to see how things are progressing for me.
