    Make It! By Jane Bull (2013 edition),,9781409325772,00.html?/Make_It!_Jane_Bull They already have Jane Bull’s Make It! book (2011 edition) and find it really easy to follow and full of inspiration!

  6. RHS Garden Projects sounds good, it might inspire me a bit to get a move on with the garden when spring arrives!

  7. I’d buy something for my baby niece. I can’t get the website to work (it’s just hanging) so I can’t choose a specific one and I have no time to wait as my low battery warning is beeping at me!

    Travel Guide: New York City would be handy

  11. I would buy Eyewonder Planes it is just the thing for Thomas and it is time he had a new book instead of reading Lilly’s old ones.

  12. A Trip To The Theatre. Informative book, I love the theatre. This would be a good introduction to a child, and prepare them for what to expect on a visit / trip to a theatre.

  13. Mary Berrys Cook Up a Feast- I love cooking and Mary is so down to earth we can all follow her instructions.

  14. Ready steady grow for my daughter , we already have a strawberry patch up and running last year with some flowers so this year she has told me she wants an orange tree!! ( she’s 4)

    1. Sorry, forgot to give my reason – because I’m experienced in cooking food from all over the world and yet the cuisine most like ours in culinary terms has escaped me – all I really know about it is ribs, burgers and fries

  15. I’d like to buy The Knitting Book, Vikki Haffenden, I used to know the basics of knitting when I was a kid but can’t even remember how to begin now. Would love to take it up again so this would be so useful.

  19. I would choose something from the non-fiction Reading Alone Level 3 series to motivate my grandson, a reluctant reader of stories but loves factual ones. As a retired teacher I always used DK books for this purpose. A great combination of printed word along with superb illustrations 🙂

    I would love to buy this book as i am always calling my Great Aunt to look up plants in her RHS book and would love a copy for myself

  32. It’s a toss up between the Lego Movie book and the Crochet essentials book – I love Lego and want the kids to love it as much as I do, and I learned crochet last year but still find some things confusing so a good basics book would help!
