“Reading to children is most important,” says Mem Fox. Higgledy-Piggledy Farm agrees with Mem who says, “Parents must keep reading books – either paper or ebooks – with their children to interpret the characters and help the child comprehend the story.” Click on the link for the full story by Fairfax Technology Reporter Lucy Battersby.

As you know we’re a mixed up messed up, hotch-potch bunch on Higgledy-Piggledy Farm, which is why we celebrate Christmas in July instead of December! After all, it’s not what you’d expect, which is why it’s so Higgledy-Piggledy! We have so much to share with you this month. A new book coming soon on the iBookstore, weekly snow reports, a pom pom scarf pattern and an all-natural ice cream recipe. So, make sure you keep following us on facebook.com/higgledypiggledyfarm – it’s dairy important that you do! Mooray! Moo-ray!
Fans of Higgledy-Piggledy Farm have shared their farm yard to back yard animal stories with us. And you can read all about them on facebook.com/higgledypiggledyfarm Chook Chook belongs to Joanna and Grant, who live on a busy road in Melbourne. One day Chook Chook strolled in and literally made herself at home – taking over the dog’s kennel first and then the shower!
Quack! Quiff here. Or am I Quaff? No need to Quibble over a name when you’re in this month’s House & Garden magazine. Yes! That’s me in the photo! I star in a four-page feature on the real-life Higgledy-Piggledy Farm. Eb is in the background or is it Flo? Hard to tell them apart. He’s camera shy. If you’d like to see more, turn to page 89 of H&G (July issue – out now).
Since the latest edition of House & Garden launched, the Higgledy-Piggledy Farm animals haven’t slept a wink. The ducks have been preening themselves for all those sticky beaks passing by. The pigs continue to hog the limelight and the cows are milking the publicity for all its worth. This is Quibble and Quip – they can’t agree on who has the best Quiff! Quack!
The July edition of Australian House & Garden is now available.
H&G People has devoted four pages (89-92) to our 23 acre farm. One of our favourite photos is the farm’s white duck, roaming around willy-nilly. Can you guess which Higgledy-Piggledy duck he inspired? Was it Bill, Beak, Feathers, Down, Eb, Flo, Quibble, Quip, Quiff or Quaff?!
