Children's Books

I'm sure you are not surprised to hear that I love children's books. Picture Books, Chapter Books, Middle Grade, Young Adult and Graphic novels. 


Relaxing means browsing bookshops, and I buy books from independents as well as Amazon, Wordery and second hand places.  I love our local library and check out lots of books regularly too (at least I did before COVID!)

I set up a shop page on so feel free browse through my favourite titles.  Hopefully it will inspire you on what to get next...

Books I've bought...

I buy lots of books, whether is for Christmas, birthdays, or just beacuse of a great review.  Here are some of the ones that found their way to us over the last couple of years.

Older Middle Grade

I love older middle grade books, but it can be a tricky category, because it really depends what you think your child can cope with, and what their reading taste is.  Books here are suited for 11+, pre-teens who don't mind being a little scared.  Some have a little swearing and The Cheerleders might be best suited for 13+ .


Just be mindful of each story and what you feel is suitable for your own child.

Young Adult

I won't pretend to be an expert in this category, but I have always been a fan of YA books.  Here are the titles I recommend.
