Bespoke Book Tree Orders

A friend asked me a favour – could I draw up a list of book suggestions for her four boys – ranging in age from 10 – 17. Her boys are not big readers, don’t like fantasy and are put off by ‘big fat books’.

I love a challenge and having kids who don’t always want to read, I know all about reluctant readers… I came up with a springboard list to get them started – a good mix of reality, biography, action and adventure with some altruistic choices too – from an environmental book that help teens understand the major green issues to a bestseller about understanding and accepting people with differences for the ten-year-old.

How about you – do you battle to find books to get your kids reading? Judging by school-gate and dinner-party conversations there is a need for this service so I’ll be running a trial Bespoke Book Tree in the new year. Send me your children’s details with their likes and dislikes and what they have read already and I’ll work out a list for you.  Once you have selected the ones that interest your child – if you want I can source the books too and have them couriered to your bookshelf! Send your details to hello@thebooktree.co.za and I’ll work out a costing for recommendations per child and, if needed, per book order.

Here’s to getting your kids reading in 2017!
