Mid September Newsletter – Parenting Books

Friday, September 18th, 2009

What a busy month September is! As well as all the work to get kids back to school, the publishing world really picks up pace after

the summer break. In this mid month newsletter we have a brand new ‘parenting section‘ as well as exciting additions to Real Reads, Children’s Classics and a fresh range of dyslexia-friendly books.

Questions answered and challenges resolved for parents

We all want our children to grow up well rounded and happy but there are lots of challenges facing parents on the way, from the youngest baby to the turbulent teenager, and no quick fix solutions. Books can help but there are so many available it’s hard to choose. So we’ve been speaking to parents and experts to find which have helped them. The best of these titles are now in our new Parenting Books category. Find out more today and we hope you find them useful.

This month’s highlights not to miss

Epic, easy to read classic stories with just 64 pages

Real Reads are retellings of some of the world’s best-loved works of literature – skilfully shortened, simplified and illustrated so they keep true to the plot and feel of the original but can be enjoyed by less experienced or time-starved readers. We’ve added some new gems to the category for you to check out, including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights.

A dozen fresh Dyslexia-friendly titles

Making good reads accessible to every child is one of our missions here at Lovereading4kids. So we are excited to announce 12 new titles to our Dyslexia category, all printed on cream paper with an easy to read typeface . To help you choose, the books are split into interest age sub-categories and, of course, you have free Opening Extracts as well as 25% off the RRP.

Seven superb Pre-Publication exclusives

We had to stop ourselves going rather mad with alliteration but it was hard with so many (seven) superb October titles to show to you ahead of the crowds. New titles from Michael Morpurgo and Geraldine McCaughrean to name just two. Find out more today and pre-order any that take your fancy.

Pre-School Prize winners

The Early Years Book Awards are one of the most prestigious in the pre-school area.

However, you can now see all the shortlisted books in our “Prize Winners category“.

Christopher Paolini was a publishing sensation when he had the first of his Inheritance cycle book, Eragon published when he

was only 20. He had written it when he was just 15.

But perhaps, we can go one better. Lovereading’s new sister site, created to allow previously unpublished authors or self-published authors promote their books, has just been sent a novel written by a 10 year old – we think it’s excellent and believe the author clearly has the talent when he is a little older to get a publishing deal. And we are not alone in our thinking.

The short novel is called

Water Source and it’s written by Will Goddard. Top children’s writer Joe Craig, author of the Jimmy Coates books has said of the book:

‘It’s really impressive! Well done. It’s not easy to write a story that keeps the reader’s interest over that many pages, but you managed to develop the plot very well. I was totally absorbed all the way through!’

Will Goddard was born on Valentine’s Day 1998, some 17 weeks premature gaining him a Guinness Certificate for being Britain’s earliest surviving baby. Having battled through his first difficult years he showed an early love of reading, a skill he developed by reading the subtitles on television programmes. Clearly this worked as we think he will be a published novelist sometime in
