With a nod to the past and a look to the future we share with you some of our favourite children's books.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”

Stephen King

A book is the most magical of objects as it’s a doorway into new worlds and gateway into imagination. Reading books aloud to children stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world and develops their skills with language and listening. In a world of smart phones, tablets and telly it’s more important than ever to read aloud together and to learn to listen.

With that in mind we have bought into two very different ranges of children’s books. With a nod to the past and majesty of the classics we have the most incredible pop up and playful visually sumptuous versions of Beauty and The Beast and Peter Pan. These books are such a treat. Not only will you be reading together, but also you’ll be intrepid explorers of these narrative landscapes looking at maps, searching for clues and opening up secret envelopes! With these books you’ll feel you’re living the adventure!
