Books For Kids This Christmas

Personally, I think the gift of a book for a person of any age is a thing of beauty, but this is especially true when it comes to gifting a book to a child. Fostering a love of reading is something that should be nurtured and encouraged from an early age, whether this be a work of fiction or non fiction.

This guide is dedicated to a few lovely book gift ideas for children of all ages.

Annuals From Little Brother Books

Little Brother Books is the UK’s only annual dedicated specialist, and this year they have a range of 13 annuals that are suitable for those who love Barbie, Elf on the Shelf, gaming (both Fortnite and Roblox), Dinosaurs and sport (WWE and Shoot for football fans.) Music fans are catered for with the Little Mix annual.They also have the classic Beano which is also suitable for big kids as a bit of a collectors item now.

Annuals offer hours of fun, with stories, quizzes and features, and are a great idea for something to read over those days between Christmas and New Year.

All thirteen 2021 Annuals are now on sale at most major retailers (Morrison’s, Lidl, Aldi, WH Smith, Smyths Toys, Asda and Sainsbury’s and more) and also online with Amazon, as well as Little Brother Books’ own website They are some of the greatest value Christmas Stocking Fillers around for the whole family behind the biggest brands this Christmas!

A subscription to the Children’s Book Club

A book for each month of the year, specially gifted wrapped and chosen carefully to appeal to the recipient is the brainchild of Louise Knight, a mum of two with a love for reading.

The Children’s Book Club choses tailored titles based on the age and interests of the recipient – from birth through to young adulthood – and include an array of hidden gems with a strong emphasis on independent publishers.
A gift-wrapped, brand-new book arrives on the doorstep each month accompanied by fun questions about the title to further inspire and engage your young reader. Children’s Book Club gifts are available at on a one, three, six or 12 month subscription basis, starting from £11.99 per month, including free UK delivery.
I think this is a lovely gift idea that extends so far beyond Christmas, and should inspire a love of reading that lasts for life.
Frostheart: Escape from Aurora

Jamie Littler’s Frostheart: Escape from Aurora is the follow up to the Branford Boase shortlisted debut, Frostheart.  

The mystical world of Frostheart expands ever further in this heart racing sequel full of dangerous quests, new strongholds and even higher stakes. Ash and the rest of the brave crew finally arrive at the majestic stronghold of Aurora. Ash can’t wait to solve the next clue that will lead him to his parents but it’s quickly clear that even Aurora isn’t safe for Song Weavers and what they find is even more incredible than they could have imagined! 

This is a magical and heart-warming tale about identity, trust and friendship. With a stunning cut out double cover, the snow filled world of Frostheart would make a fantastic gifting item for children aged 8-12 this Christmas.

Frostheart: Escape From Aurora is available from Amazon, click here to view.
