I have compiled over 100 of the best stories for kids to enjoy in 2019.

We have been really lucky and Freddie has always enjoyed reading. Even from a young baby, he would always enjoy looking through soft books. Fast forward 8 years and he still absolutely loves reading all types of books. We have books in every room of the house, from reference books to reading books.

    Such a brilliant, comprehensive list! My son is 7 but is a good reader and we’re always looking for new types of books to encourage him to read even more. I’m sure there are several books on this list that he would love. x #KCACOLS

    The book intends to help kids build up a positive bond with mathematics! Maths mastermind grade Pre-Primary is an attractive activity based book that aims to promote math proficiency in children. This book does not merely teach a child how to add and subtract, instead it incorporates series of exciting activities focused on pattern learning, number value and counting series. The book has numerous activities like count and draw, match dot-to-dot, shape-color matching and the like to make math fun.
