(ad - Gifted)
With half term coming up and summer holidays looming, you are bound to be looking at ways to keep the kids entertained. That's where Books2Door can help.
They have an extensive website of books for all ages, but I am going to tell you about some of the books from their range of Activity books.
Activity books are great for keeping kids entertained, especially when these activity books can be taken outdoors to be enjoyed.
We were sent a bundle of books to tell you all about.
Books2Door has lots of different books perfect for different age ranges. We were sent a selection of ones for different ages seen as the age range in our household is from 1 to 9 years old.
Firstly ones for our youngest at 1. We were sent Usbourne Peep Inside books which come in a collection of 6. Due to the text inside, they are recommended for children aged 2+ but Henry is just delighted by the colourful pictures and the flaps. Each book has a different theme. There is the Zoo, The Farm, Dinosaurs, The Garden, Nighttime, and Animals Homes. Each book has storylines about what you would find there, and you lift the flaps to explore and find out.
The books are hardback and have sturdy pages, which are great for little hands. And the flaps, are easy to open and also not flimsy, making them harder to rip.
The next set of books is another lovely set of lift flap books which are aimed at ages 0-5. These books are all about nature and are all about homes of nature. The set of 3 books are Bug House, Animal Homes, and Bird House. Each book shows delightful images of creatures and their homes, with flaps for you to explore more. For an older child, they can read all about the different birds, bugs and animals and learn all about them. Henry loves birds so opening flaps and seeing birds was lovely for him. These books are all shaped like a house, which is a cute design. They are also hardback which means they are great for small hands. They also have lots of peepholes which is another aspect of the books that Henry loved.
The next set of books is aimed at children aged 3 to 5 years old and are a lot more hands-on activity type of books. These are playtime learning books, and they come in a set of 5. These activity books are all about keeping your children entertained with things they love to do. So the set comes with Dot to Dot, Trace and Colour, Number Puzzles, Word Games, and Search and Find. Not only are these activities super fun, they are also sticker books, and we all know kids love stickers. Each book comes with a whopping 250 stickers which are such to keep your younger ones entertained. Lily is now 7, but she still loves a good dot to dot book and still loves playing with stickers. All the books are also filled with cute characters and animals that little ones would love.
The next collection of books was a lovely collection of I Heart Colouring Books. Colouring is such a good activity to do, its relaxing, its creative, and its mindful. It is something that can pass the hours along without realising they are passing. These mini colouring books are perfect to take places with you to keep your child entertained, they are also perfect to take along outdoors for some relax time. This set comes with 6 different colouring books in 6 different themes, narwhal, mermaids, butterflies, flamingoes, unicorns and cute unicorns. The book has back to back choices of images to colour and all the images are filled with lots of shapes, patterns and details to colour in. The books are paperback and although there isn't an age range for colouring, I would say with the details in them that they are better for children aged 5 plus.
The last selection of books we were sent is a bundle of STEM starters for Kids. These paperback activity books give a fun way of teaching children all about STEM, (science, technology, engineering and maths). Children are often fascinated with how things work, so getting to learn more about things while being out and about, will be great for them. The collection of books are for ages 7+ and come in a set of 8. You have Meteorology, Geology, Biology, Robotics, Maths, Science, Engineering and Technology. In each of the books, there will be a page all about parts of that subject, there then will be a fun activity that is in conjunction with that subject. They are perfect for learning while having fun. The books are paperback and also full of colourful pictures which will keep the attention of your childs interest.
Books2Door also sell single books as well as collections and the prices are super reasonable. The collections of books above range from £6.99 to £16.99 as you find them in brilliant sale prices.
Head to the Books2Door website and have a good look around at the Activity Books to see for yourself.
