Book Recommendations – Top Books to Buy for Kids of All Ages
Most of the Play & Go team are avid book readers – we either read a lot or we wish we had the time to read more. We love to encourage children to read, and one of the best ways is to give a book as a gift. We’re huge fans of putting books under the Christmas tree each year.
Hairy Maclary series by Dame Lynley Dodd
We’re Going On A Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen
Press Here by Herve Tullet is a clever interactive book that’s so simple but so much fun for kids.
Book Recommendations for More Confident Readers
A really recent popular release is Nevermoor by Jessica Townsend which is for the 8-12 age group. This would be good for someone you know has a lot of books as it is unlikely they already have it since it was only released in October 2017 this year.
Wonder by RJ Palacio is one of the best books we have ever read, and it is adored by all ages and of course the movie has just been releasedd. We would put it on the must-read list. Probably best for ages 9+
