We are dedicating this month to some classic stories which we think would be wonderful to share with the children you read with. 

Many of the titles have an eternal magic about them and are stories which many generations are able to find a connection with. These books highlight the importance of how showing your own personal connection to a story can help children do the same, having a greater impact on them.

Through classic storytelling, timeless illustrations and simple but engaging plots, children of all ages can find connections with the range of characters and situations presented so skilfully by some of our most well-loved authors.

Generations have shared this beautiful book, and readers of all ages will want to return to it again and again. (From Harper Collins website)
