The Groovy Giraffe is our latest finding for buying children’s books online for really affordable rates. We love our experiences. So, this is my Groovy Giraffe review which will be helpful for you to decide on your next book purchase for your kids!

We all know that reading to our kids is one of the best things which we can do from their early stages of life. I started reading books for my son when he was just few months old. Now we continue the same habit and we have established a bed time reading routine too. There are many advantages of reading books for kids including improving the communication skills, better literacy, academic skills and mastering the language. There are many more reasons to read with kids. Reading will also develop a stronger relationship between the parent and the kid. With all these reasons, we always surround our kid with age appropriate books for him to read including the books from the library.

But, you can easily buy books from online bookshops as most of the bookshops sell high quality books for affordable rates. Most of the time, online bookshops sell the books for a rate lower than the local book store.

Farm Animals Pocket Library Review

We bought these books when he was just 1 year old. At that time he enjoyed looking at the colorful illustrations of farm animals. He quickly learned the names of the farm animals and could point the illustrations with the name of the animal.

Now he really enjoys reading the cute stories in these books. Actually he can’t read yet. But he asks me to read the books several times a day and he knows the stories in the books. Then he alone repeats the stories turning page by page.

The Enormous Turnip : Kids Book Review

The Enormous Turnip is a kid’s story book which I read with my son recently. It is based on a traditional fairytale about very big turnip.

The author has written this book focusing the very young children. The writing of the book is simple and it talks to kids. With his rhythmic writing style, the author tries to improve the imaginations of kids. He talks with the kids throughout the book telling the fairy tale.

The Enormous Turnip

In this book, the illustrations are really colourful and attractive. My toddler son enjoyed reading this book with me few times again and again. It is written for preschoolers, but still good for toddlers as bedtime story book or even to keep them engaged reading.

As quoted from the book introduction,

Part of the Ladybird ‘First Favourite Tales’ series – a perfect introduction to fairy tales for preschoolers – this hardback book contains lots of funny rhythm and rhyme to delight young children. Ideal for reading aloud and sharing with 2-4 year olds
