Books for kids: Sign up for recommendations to support their wellbeing today

Would you like to get weekly recommendations for books for kids for you to read alongside some amazing activities for those books to help and support your kids wellbeing?

If you would, keep reading….

I’m a librarian. I’m also a member of the British Counselling and Psychotherapy Association as a counsellor (MBACP). I’m also the editor of this site, and have been doing it for over 10 years. I’m also a proud Autistic and ADHD business owner (self diagnosed). All of these things mean I am passionate about kids mental health. I’ve create resources to help and support kids, including a kids mental health series, and lots of amazing advice and activities for parents on this site.

You can join our mailing list and get free recommendations every month for wonderful books from Quarto Kids to encourage reading, and help support your kids mental health at the same time.

Kids from age 3+ will like these ideas – the books are typically focused on those within primary school and later nursery school.

My experience as a librarian, and a counsellor, as well as my ADHD passion, put me in a unique position to offer something special to you all. Why not sign up and get your kids reading, and growing? All the books we will cover are here, so you can get them in advance, or check your local library has them.

We will send you activity sheets each month that go with a specific book from Quarto Kids, and you can sit down and enjoy reading the book with your children, your class, your grandkids, and beyond.

Next sit down and have a go at the activities – and have LOADS of fun together, while building up your kids. Reading is wonderful for children, offering them experiences, escape, creativity, and much more besides.

The books include themes each week, and don’t be surprised to be reading an Easter story at a different time of year – we like to mix things up. If you don’t like one week’s books though, just skip a week and you’ll find something else that suits you.

We cover everything from grief, and loss, to friendship, finding courage, perfectionism, and building empathy. Some books might have a seasonal theme to them too, we trust that won’t put you off the key messaging with them though!

Thanks as always for coming to see us on KiddyCharts. If you are looking for more wonderful wellbeing books, why not check out these lists of ideas for supporting your kids too, alongside the recommendations and activity sheets we have.

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!
