This week we want to hear about books that have taken your kids to somewhere exciting and helped them forget lockdown. The best tip wins £200 towards a Canopy & Stars stay
Children’s books have never felt more precious. They offer an escape from the boredom and frustration of lockdown, taking young readers on fantastical journeys to distant – and different – lands. They might crash land in the Amazon, cross the Himalayas or be whizzed back to ancient times. Last weekend, author Piers Torday picked 10 books that offer adventure and drama, tears and laughs. Now we’d like your recommendations for books that take young readers on a journey to a real place – not an imaginary one. Avoid the titles chosen by Piers and tell us about your favourites, either from your own childhood or your children’s.
Please ensure your tip stays around 100 words.
