I don’t think you can ever have enough shoes or books, the former to prettify, and the latter to educate and entertain. Pan Macmillan recently sent some very cool kiddie books that I’m loving reading to my toddler, and that he’s enjoying looking at and listening from (and pulling the pop-out trucks, obviously).
These series of books are all new to me, and it’s refreshing to discover books other than the usual favourites (Spot, Gruffalo, Kipper, Maisy etc). I hope you and your kids get to enjoy some of them. Look out for them at bookshops at Exclusive Books. I’ve also found most of them at Takealot at good prices.
Fun, interactive, rhyming
Pop-up mask series:
Loads of fun to play with and make funny faces with, great visuals
Abney & Teal series:
Lovely illustrations, exciting stories, likeable characters
Tilly and Friends series:
Each book is about a different “friend’ who lives with Tilly. This is a charming and feel-good series of books.
