In our family a good book is an absolute December must-have. I love searching for the right book to match each child’s interests and reading level, although sometimes it takes quite the hunt to find that perfect read! I am super excited to have stumbled upon this fabulous new book by Richard Platt and can’t wait to hear what the kids think of it:

As much as they enjoy a nice fiction story our 8 and 10-year olds are even more intrigued by facts and figures, miss 8 regularly borrows a Guinness Book or Records from the library (to the great delight of the library staff) and they pick up so many cool facts and general knowledge through reading. With that in mind I am confident A World of Discovery (RRP $29.99, ages 7+) will be a huge hit.

A World of Discovery is filled from cover to cover with fascinating discoveries and inventions about space travel, science, technology, the human body, time, computers and much more. When and where was it invented and by whom, how does it work, how do we use this today? Inoculation, the compass, explosives, the internet, DNA… kids will love reading about these and many other discoveries that changed the world forever.

With more than 30 different topics there is something interesting to discover for every young reader, in fact even mums and dads can learn a thing or thirty! The gorgeous modern illustrations by James Brown are very eye catching and will help children visualise how each discovery works. A World of Discovery is a large hardcover book with a beautiful embossed cover, making it a wonderful luxurious gift for Christmas.

Hip Tip: If you enjoy ‘A World of Discovery’ make sure to also check out ‘A World of Information’ and ‘A World of Cities’ for many more wonderful finds.

With Mother’s Day just a week away most children have their precious mamas on their mind and are excitedly crafting handmade treasures for the big day. My kids on the other hand are completely focussed on Hip Daddy, who will soon go on a work-trip to Japan. They are lucky enough to have their dad home at 5pm most days so they are a bit nervous about having to miss him, even if it is only for week. Especially miss 6 is finding it hard and she has shed quite a few tears reading this lovely book with her daddy:

With My Daddy (RRP $14.99) is an absolutely gorgeous picture book for young children that celebrates all the wonderful things that make dads so special. Everyday activities like eating and cleaning, playtime and bath time turn into a fun adventure when you do them with daddy.

Our little girls adore the colourful illustrations featuring a range of father-child animal duos and they also love the rhyming story which encourages¬†them to read along and guess what is coming next. If you’re looking for heart-warming story to settle down with at the end of the day this book is a real winner (and of course a great gift idea for Father’s Day too).
