Bell Lomax Moreton is incredibly excited to announce thatLauren Gardner has sold world rights in a book deal for debut author, Daisy Upton aka Five Minute Mum, to Penguin Random House Children’s Editorial Director Holly Harris!

The first book from Instagram superhero, Daisy Upton, will be called GIVE ME FIVE, a collection of easy and fun activities for guilt free parenting. This helpful guide will be published by Penguin in February 2020.

More about the book:

Five Minute Mum’s GIVE ME FIVE is the perfect handbook for busy parents; it includes over 150 games to help make life easier for those who spend time with little people. Each game takes five minutes to set up and five minutes to tidy up and makes use of objects and materials easily accessed from any household.

From Holly Harris:

Daisy is a total genius – and as soon as the parents in the Penguin team read her proposal, they were testing out the games on their own children. Our list is about bringing families together, and Daisy’s activities do just that, and they genuinely do take just five minutes to set up and tidy away. The response to the announcement from Daisy’s fans has been phenomenal and we are very excited to publish Give Me Five next year.

More about Daisy:

Daisy Upton aka Five Minute Mum is a Londoner who now lives in Cheshire with her husband and two children. After years of working in sports broadcasting, she quit her job to become a Teaching Assistant. When her two children turned 3 and 1 she found her love of coming up with silly games to make learning more fun in the classroom finally came into its own at home, and she began blogging about what she was up to. It turned out quite a few other people wanted to play these games too. Daisy now has a large social media and blog following who share with her on a daily basis how they too are playing her games.
