Books for Younger readers

There's a story in this book fore very day of Advent.  You can start them on the 1 December and you'll finish them  just in time for Chrsitmas if you read one a day. There are stories about dragons, horses and other animals. There are stories about angels.  There are stories about people. There are even a couple of stories which tell us how the world became the way it is -  perhaps.

How better to spend this cold and dark time of the year than snuggling down in Front of the fire with a good book. (Lower primary)

Devils, demons, werewolves and other creatures of the night don’t have to be scary. In fact, at times they can be downright funny.

They’re not immune to recessions either. (Young adult)

Our Latest Title -Nativity

Many of the stories in this collection take place at or near Christmas time. There are stories of new births, of rebirths, of new beginnings, and there are a couple that deal with the joys and sorrows of the annual Nativity Play.

Again this year it was difficult to make the final choice. There are so many skilled writers out there. There was little wrong with any of the writing we read but in the end we went for the strongest stories and for those tales that best interpreted the theme.

There are some familiar authors in this volume and also some new writers. We treasure them all.

Two beautifully illustrated books for £14

From the legends and most beautiful tales of the World I have chosen twenty-four stories that only speak of love, happiness, friendship, faithfulness, compassion, understanding, goodness, faith and true values. I have heard these stories from people who are special to me, people who love story-telling, and so I feel with all my heart, it is my responsibility to retell them as I have heard them, just like our ancestors did. The collection can also serve as an Advent calendar and an opportunity for peaceful and intimate family time during the days leading up to Christmas.
