National Childrens Book Week

To celebrate National Childrens Book Week from Monday 7th October. I am posting a review each day and have a whole host of book giveaways for everyone to join in. With so many books to get your children excited about reading and creating their own stories, and lots of events happening in schools and library’s over the country everyone should have the chance to join in.

Children’s Book Week is a celebration of reading for pleasure for children of primary school age.

It’s been running for the past 80 years, and schools, libraries and other venues all over the UK hold events and activities aimed at encouraging children to view reading as a source of pleasure, explore libraries and bookshops and even start writing themselves.

Designating a special day or week for book-related activities can help children to see reading as pleasurable and fun, stimulating them to discover new books, extend their reading choices, discuss and share books, explore libraries and bookshops, and do their own creative writing.

I will be running a linky for you to add your favourite books, with books from fiction to non fiction everyone should find something new to read. I look forward to finding lots of new books for me and the boy to explore, so please pop by from Monday 7th October

 Link up, Read, Enter and Enjoy!

About the author


    1. I’m getting excited now as I have heaps of books to give away! Now to just work out how to do a linky wish me luck!

  1. What a fab idea-will get thinking about our favourites although there are so many from which to choose! Looking forward to discovering more too.

    1. I know there is something great knowing kids love books, Daddy M doesn’t like reading and I don’t have time but kids learn so much, I do all I can to encourage the boy to read.

  2. Hi, my 3 year old girl is a total bookworm, just as I was at her age (I might have encouraged her somewhat in that!). She doesn’t start school until next Sept but I’d love to contribute a few of her fave books here if I may?!

    1. Yes please do come and join in, I am enjoying finding some new books which I hadn’t heard of!
      I think I might have something to do with my little bookworm too!

      1. Great – thanks Tina! I am always trying to find new titles to keep my 3 year old engaged & challenged. Recent discoveries incl the William Bee books (‘And The Train Goes’ particularly); he is a unique author creating lovely illustrations alongside his witty texts. We also love any books by author/illustrator Polly Dunbar. Classic childhood books for me are any by Raymond Briggs and I look forward to sharing this with my LOs when they are a bit older. The Winnie the Witch series are also fun – and perfect reading for Halloween! 🙂
