Books for Children: Maverick Books

As a mum of three, I like most other parents know how important books can be for young children. In an age where gadgets and technology have literally taken over its important that children are still able to access and read books. In a growing age where children as young as 6 are given mobile phones it’s very sad that some children are still unable to even read the basics.
Although my children also enjoy computers, tablets and gadgets I do ensure they also spend some time each day reading. Be it their school book or books we have at home. Books feed their imaginations aswell as the educational benefits of language skills.
Maverick Books sent my children a selection of books.

Maverick books are really suitable for all ages. Even Izebella really enjoys looking and being read them. They are beautifully illustrated with lots of different colours and very clear pictures. The wording is very easy to read and see with clear bold lettering and not too much on one page. Many of the books have rhymes too making them lots of fun and interactive.

Mrs MacCready was ever so greedy

This is probably Jordannas favourite and about a woman named Mrs MacCready. The story is told in a fun rhyme and about a lady who cannot stop eating and eats absolutely anything. It’s a very funny story.

The Jelly that wouldn’t wobble
