GETTING BORED? 40+ BOOKS FOR THE  6+ YEAR OLD

jeanniejeanniejeannie.co.uk BLOG Monday 12th August 2019

We are half way through the long summer August school holiday with the danger of boredom setting in. Here is a list of books  to help ease that boredom. They are mainly meant for the 5, 6, 7 year old reader although most are listed for 7-11 year olds. They have all been chosen for their entertainment value and you should come out of reading each one with more knowledge about some subject even if it is only flatulence!

For the 5year olds and under check out the list from 1st August again.
