Book-related fun for young children

The Little Big Book Club provides a range of great printable activities to help your child to learn through play and exploration, and encourage them to use and express their imagination.
Reading books aloud to children is fantastic both from a bonding perspective and assisting children to develop their vocabulary and the skills necessary to learn to read and write. Songs and nursery rhymes, puppets and craft activities are also important... They all help your young child to understand what language is all about, develop new skills, provide an opportunity to talk to your child and most importantly, have fun.

Click on the links below to access the activities:
  • 0-2 year olds - All activities for this age group are reliant on an adult's help
  • 2-3 year olds - Adult supervision is still required at all times for these activities
  • 4-5 year olds - Some activities require the use of cutting tools so adult supervision is required
New activities are added each month to coincide with monthly book selections. Make sure you check back regularly to see what's new.
