"classic literature books for 10 year olds"

Once the school term starts, so do the birthday parties.  Come September, I am on the hunt for gifts and this year I am trying hard to be organised.  That means finding a few nice gifts and ordering them now so I don’t have a huge panic the day before each birthday party that ends in me paying crazy shipping prices for next day delivery.  One of my favourtie gifts for kids is books.  While on the hunt for some new books, I came across these timeless classics with the most beautifully illustrated covers and I thought they would make beautiful gifts.

Anya and her friends are a bit young for these books but Anya has older cousins and sometimes gets invited to her friends older sibling’s parties.  So I end up looking for gifts for a range of ages and I thought I would share them here in case you do too.  These classic books are a great way to introduce 8-12 years olds (depending on the book) to literature and are the kind of books that are kept forever.  Over the years there have been many different covers for these books, but when I saw these ones illustrated by Anna Bond, I loved them.  There are four classics in this range and each cover is illustrated in the prettiest colours with beautiful drawings that make you want to pick up the book and get reading.  All the books also come with matching bookmarks. Wouldn’t they look lovely on a shelf or on a table?  And besides, what can be nicer than giving a child a timeless gift that will last forever?

These classics will be available from October but can be pre-ordered now.  And dare I say it, but I will – I am also thinking of these as lovely Xmas gifts.
