Welcome to my buyers, borrowers, and readers guide to the wonderful world of children’s books. This blog is for anyone who has stood staring at bookshop or library shelves, tearing their hair out because they don’t know what to buy for that small (or not so small) person in their life.

Who is this blog for?

This blog is for everyone with an interest in children’s books. I’ll be discussing all age groups from babies to young adults, so whether you’re looking for yourself or someone else, I’m sure you’ll find something that interests you.

Age Guidelines

In each post I’ll mention an age guideline (eg. 5+, 9+, Teen, Young Adult). These categories are according to Nielsen Bookdata and Goodreads and are a recommended age only. If you/your child is a proficient reader, you may find them reading books recommended for a higher age group, or reluctant readers may prefer to read books a little under their age group. Either way is fine, but check the content first. I always include a link to Goodreads where you’ll be able to read reviews on the books and gather a little more information first.

How to search content

Because age categories vary depending upon the reader, I don’t always divide my posts by age. Instead, books are divided by genre. Just use the search bar on the right to search keywords such as ‘adventure’, ‘pirates’, ‘war’, ‘princesses’. Alternatively you could try authors surnames or book titles.

A note about gender

I don’t believe in applying genders to books, so you will never find posts with titles like ‘Books for Boys’ or ‘Girly Reads’ etc. Try searching for keywords (see above) based upon the reader’s interests.

Use the comment boxes

This blog will slowly grow but until then, if you can’t find what you are hoping for drop a comment below and I can tailor recommendations for you.

      Thanks, yours looks really interesting too. I may be buying The Miniaturist later. I wanted to start a book group for reluctant readers and children with dyslexia but I never got my act together so if you’ve got any tips or recommendations please let me know.

    A book club for reluctant young readers is a great idea. I would love to participate in something like that. The volunteering I do at the moment is organized through work, so I can’t take credit for it. But I am looking into some options from ‘reading charities’ so let’s stay in touch.
