I don’t know about you but as a parent one of the gifts I entirely encourage – whether it be for Christmas or Birthday – is a book. They are educational, fun and can be read again and again. For example, I read ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’ by Roald Dahl to Grace over a year ago. The other night we were searching around for a new book to read and she chose this one again. As I turned out the light after having read the first chapter, Grace turned to me and said ‘I do love Roald Dahl, Mummy. I wish he was still alive’.
I was recently approached by Grace Sandford, author of the book ‘Tell Me A Story – 250 Great Books for Kids’ who asked me if I might like to take a look at the compilation she has put together. I was so glad I did. She has collated a glorious selection of many well-known titles.
With the fact that there are over 800,000 kids books listed on Amazon, it does make it somewhat difficult to choose. In Tell Me A Story: 250 Great Books for Kids Grace Sandford takes the guesswork out of choosing great books for your kids. This time saving guide recommends 50 great books for each of five age groups, from babies right up to early teens; books that will educate, entertain and inspire.
With sections including the best bedtime books, chapter books, read-out-loud and read alone books, Grace Sandford’s concise reviews get straight to the point, explaining why each book will appeal to kids and motivate them to read more, and more and more!
As a useful reference for busy Mums and Dads, a christening gift for first-time parents, or to keep up to date with current trends in children`s literature, Tell Me A Story: 250 Great Books for Kids is a welcome addition to any library. Plus, it’s going to make life easier for anyone searching for a book to give to a child this Christmas.
