Right. Let’s get this party started! In honour of launching my new look blog, I’m giving away 3 awesome kids’ book prize packs for upper primary school aged kids. Simply follow Charming Language on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or by email subscription. Then, leave a comment below telling me the strangest word you’ve heard this week. Weirdest answers win!
Reading for pleasure in childhood has lifelong learning benefits
Did you know that reading for pleasure as a child has been linked to the development of language and maths skills up to the age of 16? In fact, some research suggests that your vocabulary at the age of 40 is linked to how much reading you did as an adolescent!
Luckily, books for school kids are so varied these days that there really is something for everyone. Get your kids off to a great reading start this year with a prize pack of quality titles.
Kids’ Book Prize Pack 1- Perfect for girls, 10yrs+
- The Secret Cooking Club by Laurel Remington
- Princess Parsley by Pamela Rushby
- Lizzie and Margaret Rose by Pamela Rushby
Kids’ Book Prize Pack 2 – Perfect for boys, 9yrs+

Kids’ Book Prize Pack 3 – Perfect for fantasy fiction lovers, 8yrs+
- Star of Deltora series – Books 1-4 by Emily Rodda
Thanks for dropping by my community of readers and writers! Now…
- Please leave a comment telling me about the strangest word you’ve heard this week! It could be a new phobia you’ve just discovered, something your child has invented or a dubious Trumpism (heaven help us)! You can also tell me which prize pack you’d prefer to win.
- Go and visit me Charming Language in the social media of your choice. If you’re not already a ‘liker’ or ‘follower’ it would be great to have you on board.
Hope your last couple of weeks of school holidays are squabble-free and enjoyable. You’ll enjoy them even more with kids quietly absorbed in books from their kids’ book prize pack!
