What Makes A Good Book

What Makes a Good Book?

All our books are hand picked and individually curated based on quality

Quality Content

We truly believe in the power of stories. We strive to ensure that all our books contain quality use of language.

We love stories that are heartwarming, inspiring, encouraging and stories that will draw the reader into them. Stories that keeps both kids and adults engaged and hungry for more. Stories that tell our story of humanity and build us up as people. Stories that promote love, joy and peace.

Beautiful Illustrations

We believe that people were made to appreciate beauty, and being able to appreciate beauty enriches our lives. Good illustrations expose and introduce children to different forms of art. Beautiful illustrations are no less important than the storyline.

How should you choose a book?

Based on child's age

Our books have been classified based on the recommended age. However, you would know your child best as a parent. By no means restrict your child from a book that is beyond a recommended age group. Likewise, choose books from a younger age group for struggling readers. If you have already bought a book that is too advanced for your child, consider summarising the story so that your child can still benefit from the book.

Based on child's interest

If your child is interested in trains, look for books on trains! When children are engaged in a topic, their minds will be more open to learning and absorbing information regarding that topic. So make use of this!

Look beyond what you already have

Find topics and genres that are new to your child and to you. Do not be afraid to read beyond what you are familiar with. Reading a wide variety of topics will broaden your child's general knowledge and pique curiosity to learn and find out more. This also exposes your child to more forms of storylines, characters, and forms of the language. Give your child a more wholesome appreciation of the world.
