I often find books for children more appealing than ones for adults. I think it’s because I really am a ‘judge a book by it’s cover’ type. If I am in a bookstore it’s always the bright and beautiful covers that have me reaching out and impulse buying.
In the evenings we read books together before bed. We’ve ploughed through many Roald Dahl books to date and currently are reading The Amulet of Samarkand. Big books, lots of chapters, tales of adventures. But when they get into their own beds they still love ‘younger’ books to read. Such books give them confidence in their reading abilities.
Kit and Oz were recently sent some such ‘younger books’ from Penguin, targeted more at 3-5 year olds. They’ve been enjoying these hardbacked stories and want to hold on to them for a little while longer before passing them onto their younger cousin, Charlotte.
