Books, Wonderful Books!

If like me (and all my family) your mantra is “You can never have too many books”, then read on!

With so many new books constantly pouring onto the shelves, it is hard to keep up sometimes, so here are just a few recommendations for new children’s books to keep you (and them) busy …

Recent Titles…

  ‘Where’s Spot?’ by Eric Hill (recommended reading age: 0-5yrs).

Spot fans will be amazed that this book is to celebrate Spot’s 40th birthday! Spot is still a playful puppy of course and this lovely book follows the ‘lift the flap’ format to find Spot in a special anniversary edition of the classic tale.

Daisy and the Trouble with Nature’ by Kes Gray (recommended reading age: 6-8yrs).  Daisy is back and in this adventure she’s very excited about her school’s new nature garden. Trouble is, there doesn’t actually seem to be a lot of nature in it. Where are the birds and the butterflies? There aren’t any grizzly bears or wolverines either! Fortunately, Daisy and her friend Gabby are off on a camping trip and find the perfect chance to find lots of nature.

Mummy Fairy and Me: Mermaid Magic’ by Sophie Kinsella (recommended reading age: 6-8yrs)

It seems that Mummy Fairy is still having a bit of trouble with her magic. Fortunately, Ella is always around to help! This time they catch a robber, save a whale, swim with mermaids and cause chaos in a pottery class!

New Titles for April…

What Stars Are Made Of’ by Sarah Allen (recommended reading age: 9-12 yrs). Libby wants to be a scientist when she grows up. Although Turner Syndrome can make things difficult for her, she has lots of people around her who love her, including her big sister Nonny. And when Nonny finds herself in trouble, Libby has the perfect plan to help her. This is a moving account of a family, friendship and how it’s ok to be different.

Artemis Fowl’ by Eoin Colfer (recommended reading age: 9-12yrs)

At just 12-years-old, Artemis Fowl is a criminal genius. No scheme is too dastardly, no plot too devious and he’s just discovered that fairies are real. (Poor fairies!).Read the original book before the film comes out in May 2020.

Tales for Climate Rebels’ by Ben Lerwill (recommended reading age: 9-12-yrs).

A very topical read. It’s not too late to save the planet we all love. Read stories of humans from around the world, who are fighting to protect Earth. From Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough to the guardians of the Amazon rainforest. Climate rebels unite!

Never Show A T-Rex A Book!’ by Rashmi Sirdeshpande (recommended reading age: 6-8yrs).

How you ever wondered what would happen if you showed a book to a T-Rex? Apparently the results are quite surprising!

Reading is such a simple pastime and a great pleasure. Hopefully you will all enjoy some of these new titles and don’t forget the children’s classics too – perhaps I will do those next time! Until then, happy reading…
