Mary Poppins

Last weekend, I went to see Mary Poppins. I was thoroughly disappointed by the interval but they more than won me round by the end. I totally understand that they had to change things such as the hunting scene but other changes I was actually fairly creeped out by (toys that come alive who are not Buzz and Woody!)

On the whole, I loved it, they totally redeemed themselves.

Take your little ones and let me know what you think! Nb children under 5 are not allowed.

More to books…

Speaking of changing things, I always find it hard when I read the book and then watch the movie as for me, the film rarely does a better job than my imagination.

I never read Mary Poppins as a child, but I have as an adult (and a nanny) I can definitely say I would be fired if I did some of the things that she does, but of course I love Mary Poppins.

On researching Mary Poppins I found this gorgeous version illustrated by Lauren Child. I have mentioned before about author/illustrator signings. They are an amazing way to excite your child into reading a book but may also inspire them to write or draw themselves.

I met Lauren Child at a cute little book shop in Kew when I first moved down to London as a Nanny.

Totally nothing to do with Mary Poppins other than I am a Nanny, I had priority tickets to Loose Women last week, so with the help of the amazing compere Lee Peart, I gifted my book to Stacey Solomon and the Loose Women ladies.

Look at my book making a sneaky appearance in an audience shot!

Show me pictures of you at the theatre! What did you see?

Post a pic of your little one at a book signing!
