Synopsis

Usborne First Activities Summer Fun by Fiona Watt

This is a Summer-themed activity book perfect for young children only just getting to grips with art and craft projects. Each simple activity is ideal for a parent or carer to share with a young child and helps to develop important skills such as hand control, coordination and concentration. Projects include printed sandcastles, sparkly seashells and paper plate sunflowers with simple step-by-step picture instructions and there are two pages of stickers to help decorate and complete each Summer activity. To help encourage and build confidence, a relaxed attitude is taken towards each activity, let the child do as little or as much as they want, the results don't have to be perfect - it's the taking part that counts.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
