Pocket Money Tales – Magpie Money

Boo has taken after me with his love of books, and is eager to read anything and everything he can get his hands on. He recently discovered Roald Dahl (still one of my favourite authors!) and he is enjoying reading Charlie and the Chocolate factory which he borrowed from the library. He’s been asking for a while if he could buy some Roald Dahl books as he wants to build his “own little library!” and I have been keen to let him as I love Roald Dahl! Today I promised a quick look in our local charity shop for a puzzle, and E was pleased to find a puzzle which was perfect for him! Boo was unimpressed as there was nothing suitable for him, and so I suggested a look at the well stocked children’s book section. It was then we uncovered a big stash of Roald Dahl books, and after some deliberation Boo decided to use some of his saved pennies to buy George’s Marvellous Medicine!

I had to resist the urge to buy all of the Roald Dahl books they had, as part of the fun of this was allowing him to use his own money to buy a book which he had chosen all by himself and for 50 pence he’s delighted! So a little maths practice and a new favourite book, not bad for a 5 year olds first day of Easter Holidays! Now to explain that under no circumstances can he try out George’s recipe on Granny or anyone else for that matter!!
