Just time to order some books for the half term holidays….

Hoping for just a little peace during half term? If you buy them some books from our great book selection, all of which are recommended by children, you might even have time for a quiet coffe and a natter with a friend while the children are off …and if it snows, what better way to warm up after an afternoon’s sledging than with a woolly jumper and a great book.

So here are a few of the highlights from our site. Remember, that when you buy from us you have the advantage that we make great recommendations and then you click through to Amazon for great prices.and rarely any postage.

For the little ones, a great new discovery for us is  “Lost and Found”. An enchanting story of the friendship between a penguin and a little boy. Just look at the reviews on Amazon for this book!

For 6-8 year olds who are fairly confident readers, but who like a book with lots of pictures, “Dinosaur Cove” is a great series.It is particularly good for readers who have only read factual books up until now. If you are now trying to get them to read a bit of fiction, these books are definitely the way to go.Great stories – with dinosaurs.The reading level of these books is Amethyst.For little girls who love fluffy kittens and playful pups you can’t beat Holly Webb’s delightful books. Also at  Amethyst reading level, these are the type of book that they just have to keep reading and reading to find out what happens at the end.

If your 6, 7 or 8 year old is only just starting out with reading alone, Ricky Ricotta is a great favourite. As well as a great story these books have “Flip-o-rama” pages to make a moving story and instructions for drawing Ricky and all his friends. These books are at Emerald reading level.

If you haven’t got into the Rainbow Magic stories yet, and you have a little girl, these stories are easy to read and just brilliant for girls.They are at Ruby reading level. All the Rainbow Magic books that we feature are the 3 books in one versions, but if you would prefer a thinner book with just one story in, click through to Amazon here.

In Monday’s blog we’ll be featuring some book suggestions for 9-11 year olds.
