I’ve reviewed several children’s books that I’ve received from Books2Door here on Linda’s Book Bag but I haven’t ever really said much about the company who have sent them to me for review.
With schools opening and closing, online learning, the inability to meet up with friends and all the restraints that our children are dealing with, now seems the perfect time to engender a love of reading. Through books children can escape the everyday world and the lovely folk at Books2Door have some fabulous new worlds for children to discover. I’ve found Books2Door really fabulous in offering a wide range of books and I love the fact that the more books you buy, the more points you get to redeem against future purchases.
Established in 2004, Books2Door provide discounted children’s books and there really is something for everyone on their website. You can search by age (and yes, there are books for adult readers too), price (starting at 99p), popularity and so on, so that there is the chance you’ll find a book for any reader.
You’ll find the my reviews of books I’ve received from Books2Door as follows:
Michael Morpurgo’s 8 Book Collection here
Calming Art Therapy Colouring Book here
The World of David Walliams Book of Stuff here
Horrid Henry’s Mischievous Mayhem here
Evie in the Jungle here
Most recently I was offered a choice of books for review on 22nd December and I chose a box set of Anthony Horowitz’ Alex Rider books because in the past I have written teaching resources for Hodder for other of Anthony Horowitz’s Power of Five books (available from Books2Door here) which I thoroughly enjoyed, so I’m excited to read this series (which you can also buy here and which is cheaper than on a well known online store!). Having placed that order on 22nd December, I received a confirmation on 23rd and the books arrived on 24th. Given the Christmas post I thought this was absolutely brilliant service and is exactly the service I have had every time I’ve had books from Books2Door. Indeed, I think it says something about the level of service they provide when they have an average score of 4.9/5 on Trustpilot from over 14,000 reviews.
The books are well presented in a cardboard holder that gives any child an instant bookshelf. I forgot to photograph the packaging they came in, but the parcel arrived in pristine condition. I confess I haven’t actually opened the collection yet as I didn’t want to spoil it! That said, I’m desperate to get reading this series so there will be a review of Stormbreaker soon! The set contains:
