New Carlton Children's Books for Spring - Bundle Giveaway

One of the best things about any new season is all the new releases, and this Spring Carlton Books have loads of really interesting books for children. We've been sent 3 of the best to take a look at. They're a really eclectic mix taken from 3 different book ranges - and one of my readers can win all 3 for themselves.


The books I'm looking at are My First Creativity Book: Ponies (age 3+) by Anna Brett, The Fairy Creativity Book (age 6+) also by Anna Brett and Champions League Fact File written by Clive Gifford.


My First Creativity Book: Ponies is designed for children aged 3+. This range is an introduction to more exciting activity books, for children who are beginning to use scissors and recognise letters, and read together.


My First Creativity Book: Ponies is spiral-bound, with 56 pages. It's got a lovely thick glossy cover , 4 full colour pages of glossy stickers and a pull out cardboard playscene to decorate. And this is as well as tons of activities to make, do or colour. This book will keep any child who has an interest in ponies busy for hours. Children can even make their own rosette and certificate.


The language is nice and simple, but not childish, in short sentences with accompanying images. This is a great book to encourage newer readers to stretch themselves a little bit, because a lot of the text can be guessed by looking at the pictures, and the font is an absolute joy to read. Age 3+ rrp £6.99.


The Fairy Creativity Book is for children aged around 6+ who are independent readers. There are some quite complex activities, for example paper-folding and mobile-making, but nothing too daunting for younger readers. In fact the pretty style of this book makes it really very attractive to children throughout primary school.


The book itself is spiral-bound, with a wipe-clean cover including the pull-out playscene, and 80 pages, including 2 sheets of stickers and a sheet of stencils. It's really impressive and makes an awesome gift.


The Fairy Creativity Book offers enough to challenge children throughout primary school. The language used is clear and not overly-complicated, and I love the font. It's beautiful to read. Age 6+, rrp £9.9.


Champions League Fact File is an A4 hardbacked book best suited to independent readers aged around 6+, or to read together with other people of any age. Full of all kinds of records and achievements from the Championship league, even a non-fan can find something of interest.


Champions League Fact File has 96 full-colour pages with loads of photos and colour on every page. It's really bright and eye-catching, and each different table, diagram or fact is presented clearly, on a page of information with a common theme.


 My eldest is a football supporter and he's read this cover to cover - just don't tell his mates... Suits any age group, but maybe best for readers of primary school age, rrp £9.99.

  28. Now, this is an interesting puzzle. We need to think about it as the Fairies can fly and have magic; the ponies are used to running around and can work as a team. Also what size is the ball? The fairies arent very big and ponies seem much largers so kicking a tiny ball wouldnt work at all!
    I am reading too much into this arent I... ok I think that the ponies would win, as long as it was an fair game.

  34. I'd support the ponies but think that the fairies would win because they could sprinkle fairy dust on themselves to ensure a high scoring match

    ReplyDelete
  35. The fairies would win as they have the advantage over the ponies because not only can they fly but they have magic on their side.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ponies because bigger and stronger than fairies

    ReplyDelete
  37. Fairies! They can overcome the Ponies size and strength with magic

    ReplyDelete
  38. The Ponies, they are faster and have four legs to kick the ball about

    ReplyDelete
  39. Fairies as they could magic a ball in the goal straight away without moving

    ReplyDelete
  40. What a question! It would have to be the fairies as they are so light and magical they would run rings around the ponies.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Fairies because they would use magic to score goals - l ryves

    ReplyDelete
  42. Ponies as Fairies wouldn't be allowed to use magic as that would be cheating and they're far too small and light to be able to kick a ball !

    ReplyDelete
  43. Ponies because they could HOOF the ball down the field, to their striker. Although saying that the fairies might be able to magic the ball into the net (although that might be cheating lol).
