This week’s selection of possible gifts for book loving children and families comes from The British Library Shop.
Bookchase is the perfect game for anyone who has ever read a book. The game can be played with questions or without – fast or slow. Ever dropped a book in the bath, or lent a book to someone and never got it back? 2-6 players aged 6 and upwards – the perfect family boardgame. First to collect, beg, borrow or steal 6 books is the winner.
Children’s Writers – The Spoken Word. Settle down and enjoy as ten favourite children’s writers read extracts from their own books. Listen to the actual voices of J.R.R. Tolkien, Roald Dahl and Philip Pullman among others.
I also want to point you towards Wonder-Shirts – an online shop selling t-shirts (for both adults and children) featuring artists more familiar from children’s books, including Arnold Lobel, Rosemary Wells, Garth Williams and Tomie de Paola
Wonder-Shirts is based in the US but will ship world-wide if you contact them about shipping costs.
