“Until I feared I would lose it, I never loved to read. One does not love breathing.” To Kill A Mockingbird
Sat poolside? How is your book going? Inspired to read more instead of watching TV once back home?
Or perhaps you’re stuck on a commute, but with everyone on holiday you can actually get a seat, so you’re reading.
It’s an addiction well worth passing on to our kids. Which is why we’ve devoted the month to books. See previous week’s selection here.
By sharing a recommended book yourself you can help others to sift through the trees to find a good paperback. Literally.
Remember, published newsletters now feature on the app, so if you’re passing a bookshop simply tap in for a recommendation or two. Oh and we have added articles too. The first one, by Josie, a mum of 2, is about keeping your kids’ brains engaged during the holidays. It’s just a 3 min read and it full of smart tips. You’ll need to update your Kinfo app to read it .
A board book with flaps for the teeniest of tots to play with. Hunt down the bear (or other animals in this series). “Very simple clever little books” says this mum of 1. “Perfect out and about stories.”
“A lovely first-time introduction to the magic of the night sky,” tips this parent. This charming book excites little ones into studying various constellations beautifully illustrated in gold, black and white.
A quarterly print publication that encourages and inspires ‘intelligent’ creativity for kids. “Lovely stories, graphics and games. I pretend I buy them for my child, but really they are for me,” says a parent of a toddler.
A vibrant, scientific guide to the tiny particles that make up everything around us from trees to buildings, light to ourselves. Perfect for kids who ask “how” and “why” all day long. Oh and the perfect example of why non-fiction books need not be dull and boring, recommends this mum.
The last book in the first series about a teen super hero agent is recommended by a parent of two very excited kids. Follow Alex Rider’s 007-style action-packed adventure filled with suspense, drama and endless globetrotting, in his quest to defeat the baddies. Get the whole series here.
These carefully curated songs are real headphone moments, calming bouncy young minds, and allowing them to get lost in page after page in the sunshine, or cosied up in bed.
They all have a fantastical, dream-like feel to them – something to help kids minds open up to wonder and adventure.
So, put on the headphones and sink into songs from artists such as Sufjan Stevens, Iron & Wine, Lord Huron and Nick Drake (perfect for bedtime reading).
