Carlton Kids books are a new publishing company to us so I was excited to receive some of their titles to review. We were sent a good mix of fiction and non-fiction books, puzzle books and colouring books so the kids had plenty of choice on what to read or look at first.
My favourite book from the lot is the Alice Through the Looking Glass hardback book, written by Lewis Carroll. It is beautifully illustrated with lots of lift-the-flap fun which keeps children engaged in the story, especially younger children who might find the amount of text on the page a bit overwhelming.
We also really enjoyed the Tomb of Tutankhamun which can be used as a resource on its own or with an app that allows you to explore the tomb on a full 360 rotation. The facts are really interesting and easy to digest. It would make the perfect resource for a school project and I think we'll donate it to the kids' school as they have an Egypt topic every year.
The Mensa Kids Train your brain puzzle books are great for keeping your child's mind active during the school holidays or for extra homework. Z loves puzzle books and can work his way through one fairly quickly. These books come at different levels and increase in difficulty as you progress through the book. They are well laid-out and colourful, making them really engaging for children.
I love colouring books and so do the kids. I find colouring really relaxing and the more intricate, the better. I get really annoyed if I go over a line! These books are full of interesting designs and again, they vary in detail and design. There are sections where you have colour by number or dot-to-dot too.
I have a copy of each book available to giveaway to one lucky reader. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning these books, simply fill in the rafflecopter form below.
