Activities for little children

Activity books for journeys

Small children can learn how to draw with the Big Drawing Book, or practise number skills and line-drawing in Dot-to-Dot Things That Go. There are stickers, colouring pages, puzzles and more in Farmyard Tales Activity Book, and fun for the whole family in Travel Snap.

Wipe-clean telling the time cover"When learning to tell the time, repetition is invaluable, so this wipe clean book is perfect for early learning of this vital skill. Knowing that mistakes can be wiped away increases children's confidence as they are willing to 'have a go'."
