"All the reading she had done had given her a view of life that they had never seen" – Matilda
Welcome to our penultimate book review this month.
We've received great feedback about our summer-long romp through the Kinfo library. If you missed any of these weekly newsletters, find them here (and on the app).
All we ask is, if you take one book out, pop one back? Together we can teach our kids how to sift through the wood to find the best literature.
Maybe we'll include your tip next week. Other parents will thank you.
Oh and we have been asked many times to improve the search function on Kinfo, so we did. Now you can search through thousands of screens on the app. Just update your app and start searching!
Ted is too busy for bath time. Ted is, in fact, a little mischievous, but we like that. "Bold colours and simple lines, one of the few books that we enjoy all together, baby and toddler," approves this mum.
Make Believe Ideas
Fifty pages packed with "very first activities" including colouring, stickers and games. Ideal for those little stolen lattes on the move! Recommended by a mum of 2.
A hardback with stunning pictures, a wonderful gift for toddlers who can learn to connect with nature (it's never to early to love a mountain?). "A beautiful lyrical story about the flora and fauna on the mountainside. Grown-ups will like it too," says a mum of 2.
A mum of 2 tips this absolute classic. (It's about a bookworm, we had to include it, right?). Kids love the story so much that they want to read it, watch the film, see the musical, sing the songs, wear the costume on World Book Day...
"Cats and clans with funny names and the moral in this book is: fight for what's yours," reads one review on Kinfo. Universally addictive, fans will be begging, buying or borrowing the entire series before long.
A parent of 2 rates this weekly postal subscription. Current events are written in a "clear, child-friendly manner" alongside environmental stories, tales of animal welfare, politics and recommended apps and books. New subscribers get the first 6 issues free.
It’s been well documented that using your electronic device before bedtime can disturb sleep patterns, stimulating the eyes and mind with a stream of notifications and moving images.
What’s the antidote to this? And how can you help a young mind get the sleep it desperately needs to develop and grow?
Reading is one of the best things a child can do before sleep to help your brain gradually switch off - combining this with the soothing music we’ve refreshed our playlist with this week to ensure they’re ready and willing for the dreaded back to school.

PS: we also post our playlists on Kinfo app every week.
