Best Kid’s Books To Read These School Holidays

School holidays are a time for fun! While lockdowns have meant we’ve had to adjust our plans just a *few* times, thankfully books are always there for us. Not sure what your primary school-aged bookworm might like next? We’ve got a few suggestions for the best kid’s books to read these school holidays!

The Heart Principle: Helen Hoang — Book Review

The Heart Principle: Helen Hoang — Book Review

The Heart Principle demonstrates the importance of learning to love, accept and be confident in who you are. The journey to self-acceptance is hardly ever an easy one. It is refreshing to read a book that wholeheartedly acknowledges this.

Waking Romeo — Kathryn Barker: Book Review

Waking Romeo — Kathryn Barker: Book Review

Waking Romeo was the time-travelling literary mash-up we didn’t know we were missing. Drawing on the classic literature of both Romeo and Juliet, and Wuthering Heights it’s a delight. Achingly sad at times, funny and with a deep heart, this is a wonderful read.
