For Kids and Parents


Children of all ages love choosing their own books.

For the very young, we have board books and picture books you can read to your children, along with a good selection of audiobooks, DVDs and CDs. Young children also enjoy reading to themselves.

For the not-so-young, we have a wide range of fiction and non-fiction, and graded easy readers for those learning to read.

There are also online resources for all ages:
