Keeping the kids entertained during lockdown with Books2Door

As we head into the 5th week of lockdown and the end of the Easter holidays, my thoughts have returned to restarting home schooling.

The kids started well with doing their work, but I have to admit that it has been a struggle so we are looking forward to some new lessons which will start online from next week as they are much keener to complete work on the computer.

One thing they have done well is reading and we have exhausted all the books in our house.

We are normally monthly library visitors, but with libraries closed we have had to look for other options, so when Books2Door invite us to review their book delivery service, we jumped at the chance. select books that they know children love, from treasured classics to the latest must-have series and all at affordable prices.

Isaac Alex Rider

I let the kids peruse the website and Eliza opted for the Worst Witch 8 book series bu Jill Murphy, whilst Isaac opted for the Alex Rider 10 book series by Anthony Horowitz. All Sebby wanted was the new Supertato: Books Are Rubbish! special book for World Book Day.

Worst Witch

I was really impressed with the Books2Door service as the books arrived within 2 days of ordering.

Books are Rubbish

They currently have a 10% off offer on site by using SCP10 and it is also free delivery on orders over £30.

Are your kids enjoying reading during at the moment?

  1. I LOVED the Worst Witch as a kid, I always wanted to go to that school. Nice to see a new generation are still enjoying those stories – very timeless.

  2. This sounds like a fantastic idea! I need to encourage mine to read more. I think they’d love The Worst Witch books they were great for me when I was little.

  3. Our kids totally love reading book and it is a bummer that the library is closed at the moment. We have also run out of books to read as we have read them all so getting books delivered from Books2Door sounds like a great idea

  4. I bet books are so popular at the moment with all ages. A perfect time to read and have less screen time. I must admit I have not been great at that

  5. [Appologise for the late comment, I had to wait for a new keyboard and it arrived today]

    Oh, I love this idea! It’s such a clever and great service for those that can’t use the library because of lockdown! Kudos to the person who started this online service! Brilliant xx
