The Guardian (again!) has a new list of summer reads up for kids this morning. Besides the usual suspects (Potter, another G.P. Taylor) there are some interesting suggestions. I'm going to definitely check out Raven's Gate by Anthony Horowitz.
The kids rode on the upper deck of a double-decker yesterday and were quite proud of themselves. They plan on doing the same today enroute to the Natural History Museum and the Victoria and Albert (the Underground is too much for my little one, not to mention the fact that all the stations around us are still closed). This evening we'll finally venture into King's Cross for our touristy picture of 9 and 3/4. We're also going to finally make it to Trafalgar Square. We tried to feed the Pigeons on the July 6, but Olympic Celebrations had closed the square down!
