So if you think you have a budding astronaut then take a look at our small but perfectly formed selection of titles. One Small Step is our personal favourite in the Lovereading4kids office.

Finally, with Father’s Day just around the corner, we’ve selected one truly gorgeous book that stood out from the crowd to such a degree that it’s the only title we’ve selected for you in celebration of father’s Day. Do look at the delightful On our Way Home by Sebastien Braun as it would make a lovely gift and a beautiful book to read out loud.

So there we go – a whole host of marvellous adventures and misadventures to keep your kids reading well into summer and beyond. Visit Lovereading4kids to find out more
