More children's books:

Hello Ruby. Adventures in coding (But I might spend mroe time with a Scratch book).

Nine Open Arms

My Little Book of Big Freedoms

The Lost Words

All of those are perhaps a bit "worthy", and we read a load of other books. We're going to make our way through anything published by Little Gems. These are small, short, books with a clear font and nice illustration. I think these are great for reluctant or new readers. Here's one example, but they have a load: Mr Birdnest and the House Next Door (lovely illustration by Hannah Shaw)

And things like The London Eye Mystery (which may be a bit too old for my child, we'll see how it goes)

We're still reading a few heavily illustrated books. I love Kate Hindley's work, so I'm buying The Knight Who Said No!

I guess this list isn't massively useful, so here are some actual books.

The Explorer by Katherine Rundell (but anything by this auther, she's written some excellent books)

The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd

and The Guggenheim Mystery by Siobhan Dowd and Robin Stevens
