The summer holidays are but around the corner which means inevitable days stuck indoors and cries of ‘I’m bored!’ Or maybe you’re lucky enough to be jetting off somewhere which could mean long travel times and more cries of ‘I’m bored!’
Either way, prepare yourself now with my favourite distraction – books!
My First French Word Book – £7.99
Kingston is in Reception where he has been learning French so we are loving this new board book of simple French words. We practice a new word and phrase every night to reinforce what’s learned at school. If you are travelling to France this summer this book is a must take to help them use all the words and phrases they’ve learned at school. It looks like a picture dictionary so is very easy and covers subjects like ‘Les animaux’ and ‘Mon corps’. I had a great time reading it with him as it brought back to mind all the French I learned (and loved) at school.
The Usborne Third Big Maze Book – £7.99
Kingston is really into mazes and puzzles at the moment so there’s lots of fun to be had with this 60-page book of mazes. He gets to dodge aliens, lead lost explorers and smuggle pirate treasure as he works his way through the book. The mazes get progressively harder so they might need a little help as they get closer to the end which results in some nice quality time together.
I’m putting both books on an easy access shelf in preparation for August!
