As many of your know, I love nothing more than burying my head in a good book and lucky for me my children feel the same way. I’m always on the lookout for new and interesting reads, for both them and me!
With a little help from my three girls,today I’m reviewing four children’s books covering ages from toddler through to tween. Because what’s better than children’s book reviews if not by children themselves?!
I also think books make the best presents (you can never have enough books!) and with Christmas fast approaching they may also be helpful for selecting a few titles to give as gifts this year.

Reading has always held a special place in my heart. Not just for the love of stories and the ability to experience a different world, if only in my mind, but also for the memories they bring of loved ones I may have shared a particular book with, special moments in time and even places I have travelled.
I have always loved to read and lucky for me my children seem to enjoy it just as much as I do. Reading a book forms special part of Miss 2’s bedtime routine every evening, with the two of us sharing a book before she gets tucked in for the night, just as I did with my two older girls. Even now, Miss 8 and Miss 12 still enjoy sharing a few pages of their latest chapter book with me before bed.
I’m back today with a few more book reviews for children of different reading stages and ages.
I am reviewing three books covering toddlers, young children and tweens … with a little help from my three daughters. I hope that by offering opinions from my own children, it essentially gives other parents a really insight into what kids really think of some of the books that are available to them – these are essentially book reviews by kids for kids.
Previously on the blog, I have covered the topics of how to encourage young people to read throughout their school years, even during the school holidays – I learned a great deal from these guest posts by Dymocks Literacy Expert Ryan Spencer.
At my request, Dymocks also provided a list of book recommendations for different age groups in these posts and I recently received a book for each of my girls, who are aged one, seven and 11, to review.
