Have you joined the #juniorbookclub yet? 

NO? Then you need to read this on how to join the #JuniorBookclub. We're passionate about books here at Junior and want to get kids reading as much as we can.

So, rather than just telling you what books to read - we have been sending them out for kids to actually READ and getting real honest reviews back in return. Hearing the feedback, love and enjoyment from a child's point of view hopefully will encourage a love of reading in other children - as there is nothing stronger or more reliable like a word of mouth recommendation - is there?

This is what the young stars of our #juniorbookclub have been reading since we launched in October 2017. We will regularly do these updates - as the more mini readers we have the more reviews we can do!

So come join in...

The Grumpy Frog by Ed Vere (Puffin Books)

"So far Bear's has loved the books, this one in particular - "Grumpy Frog" It's been a huge success. We took it on holiday and read it to Bear’s cousins (aged 5 and 2) who also loved it and were in stitches when we read the book (for the 100th time). I enjoyed reading it aloud too. It’s such a modern twist on a children’s book with great morals too such as respecting what others like and playing nicely."

My Animal Book by OKIDO (Thames & Hudson Ltd.)

"We've really enjoyed all the books that have come our way from the #juniorbookclub But 'My Animal Book' is pretty special - so many facts: habitat, life cycles, footprints, etc etc and cool activities to go with. Exactly what you'd expect from @okidomagazine."

Start Little Learn Big Colours: Lift-the-Flap by Smriti Prasadam-Halls and Olivier Latyk (Parragon Books Ltd.)

"It's the perfect weather to curl up with a good book and thanks to @juniormagazineonline we were sent a beautiful parcel of books for #juniorbookclub. We picked 'Lift the Flap Colours' straight away. The jazzy illustrations and gazillion flaps kept her amused for (toddler) hours - happy toddler happy mummy! We're just starting the journey into learning colours and this book is a great tool to help us further!"

Kevin By Rod Biddulph (HarperCollins Children's Books)

"Kevin by Rob Biddulph a perfect rhyming book about a little boy and his imaginary friend. It’s a totally heart warming story about friendship, kindness and other peoples feelings. Beautifully illustrated too - I mean look at that face? We loved it."

laugh--I guess we blew it. The oldest got 'age appropriate'--the next two had to listen to what we read the oldest., which is how a preschooler listened to the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings and essay writers book reviews. But since my 3 include 2 English majors and 1 Poli Sci major, a Masters and a PhD, we must have read something properly!

I’m not saying it’s a bad thing. The point I’m making is that you paid a premium for the goods as well as all that comes along with it. The better quality along with the packaging carries forward with the brand equity. Phi 41 Ne 33
