Due to social distancing requirements, parents and kids find themselves working to understand a new reality. With daycares, schools, and libraries closed for the foreseeable future, having good quality books at home is becoming more important for families with kids of any age.
During the month of April, Megan from Usborne is gifting her 20% commission from all online book sales back to MumNet to help keep the core staff employed and to continue providing online content for members in lieu of the planned in-person spring groups. Place your order today to both keep your kids entertained and help MumNet benefit from this generous donation.
To make your shopping easier, Megan has complied a list of the top books by age/grade along with some good boredom-buster activities offered by Usborne.
