The Curious Kids Book Club: August

Welcome to the first edition of The Curious Kids Book Club. Each month Finley, Olivia and I, will bring you our top five books. We talk about what we like, why and who we think its suitable for.


There’s a Monster in Your Book by Tom Fletcher 

There’s a Monster in Your Book is a brilliantly funny and interactive story about the little monster that lives in a book.

As we leaf through the pages we are met with a monster and it’s our job to get him out. The story is captivating from the very beginning, with beautiful illustration to cleverly compliment the story and lots of actions to ignite the imagination.

It is the perfect length for little attention spans too.

Suitable from 1 years – 5 years.



The Further Adventures of the Owl and the Pussy Cat? by Julia Donaldson

The Owl and the Pussy Cat is a well loved favourite in The Curious Mummy house hold. So when we discovered Children’s Laureate Julia Donaldson had created a new adventure for this romantic duo, we could not wait to read it. With Donaldson’s hallmark prose, it is a funny, witty and engaging story which will captivate your little one for years to come.

Suitable for 18 months – 8 years


My Grandpas Amazing Inventions by Richard Johnson

My Grandpas Amazing Inventions is a tale filled with imagination and ideas. The story is about a Grandpa who invented a marvelous magical story telling machine for the Annual Inventors Competition. The colourful illustrations are amazingly detailed and help bring this story to life.

Suitable for 2years +



If I Were A Unicorn by Jellycat Books

The perfect sensory book for unicorn lovers everywhere. This colourful board book is filled with lots of eye catching illustrations and different textures to keep your little reader engaged. Olivia loves it and it has helped her to understand what certain words mean.

Suitable 0-2 Years 



The Tiger Who Came To Tea by Judith Kerr

A well loved classic about a big, furry, stripy tiger who unexpectedly visits Sophie and her Mummy for tea. The tiger indulges until there is nothing left to cook for Daddy’s supper. Oops! (Well we can all relate to that). The characters are warm, the story line is funny and the illustrations are beautiful. If you haven’t read it, give it a go. It won’t disappoint.

Suitable 1 – 6 Years
