Milky Moments by Ellie Stoneley

A beautiful book for children and their families, Milky Moments celebrates the joy of childhood and mothering, and normalises breastfeeding as a part of day-to-day life. Delightfully illustrated scenes are complemented by lyrical rhyming text that gently draws the reader into the lives of the families depicted. The hand-painted illustrations are set in a variety of locations including a playgroup, a shopping trip, parks, hospital and at home. The children's ages range from newborn to 5 years old, baby and child breastfeeding positioning is accurate and realistic, and the love and attention to detail in the book were inspired by the guiding principles of the La Leche League and the author's own personal experience. Inspirational, intimate and fun, Milky Moments is not only a book to treasure, but also a book that will educate and inform on the importance and normality of breastfeeding - however old you are.

About the Author

Ellie Stoneley

Ellie Stoneley was inspired to write her first book Milky Moments after her daughter was born and every book they were given depicted bottles and bottle feeding rather than breastfeeding when it came to showing babies being fed.

When she’s not writing, she's generally singing songs about dingle dangle scarecrows and black sheep with her 3 year old daughter. Ellie also works freelance helping small charities and businesses to give themselves a louder voice online. She has worked all over the world, most notably helping teach Aboriginal children and mining opals in the Australian outback, and more recently, making a visit to Madagascar to highlight the issues many children face there, on behalf of the Kitchen Table Charities Trust. Ellie writes regularly about breastfeeding and being an older first time mother on her own blog Mush Brained Ramblings, for Huffington Post, as well as at Mumsnet, Midlife Mothers, What to Expect and Breastfeeding Matters. She has appeared on TV and radio to discuss a variety of parenting issues.

Milky Moments published by Pinter and Martin in May 2015 is an illustrated rhyming book for children depicting breastfeeding as a normal and loving part of day to day family life.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Amrit Bunet – Teen

I love Lovereading4kids because I get an opportunity to put my opinion forward and to try new books

Elosie Clarkson – age 11

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
