Books2Door kindly sent the girls some books add to our collection including some timeless story time classics and some brilliant Usborne information books. They have a huge range to choose from, all of which are brilliantly priced for all age groups and reading levels, making the decision quite difficult. I wanted to share our choices with you in case you are in need of some inspiration for your children's next reads.
The best books are the ones you can't turn the pages quick enough for, the ones that as I pop my head around the girl's bedroom doors to turn out the light at night mean that they shout, - "just one more page". Enid Blyton's Secret Seven books have really sparked Ellie's (8) imagination in this way ever since she brought the first one home from the School library, so she was delighted to be the proud owner of a full set of well loved tales.
Despite being first published in 1949 they have a timeless appeal of childhood adventure and are really accessible. The set comes with 16 stories and is priced at just £22.99 meaning each book works out at £1.44 each!
Phoebe (6) has just started reading longer books to herself independently and has been really engaged by the Milly Molly Mandy stories. The Books2Door set priced at £13.99 comes with six books working out at £2.33 each, all containing several short stories which are perfect for young readers to read aloud and would make a lovely gift.
First published in 1928 they are yet another timeless classic which transcends the generations. Phoebe has already decided that she would like to go as Milly Molly Mandy for World Book Day!
All our children are inquisitive, but Lottie (4) likes to ask lots of questions about how and why. I've always been a big fan of Usborne books as I love the way they present information in a bright and interesting way. Lottie really likes the interactive element of the books in this set of being able to lift the flaps to reveal the answers.
This particular set of four books is amazingly priced at £22.99 and includes topics Space, Science, The World and General knowledge. Books2Door have several Usbourne learning book sets which i'll definitely be adding to our collection. I think they are great for home learning and as they are board books they are really designed to last. Before google existed there were often where you looked first to source information and I want my girls to learn this skill, non fiction information books are great way for them to do this.
Ever since I was a little girl books have taken me off to imaginary worlds with carefully crafted words painting pictures and telling stories with each line you read. There is something so magical about reading and it's something I love to share with my children. In such a digital age it's really important to me that the girls know how to 'get lost in a book' and enjoy the feeling of holding a book in your hands and turning the pages. Books2Door have so many favourites from my own childhood but there are lots of new titles too, there really is something for every young reader to encourage a love of reading - and they'll deliver them straight to your door!
