Children’s Book Week 4-15 October

Every year the Dutch CPNB organises the Dutch Children’s Book Week (Kinderboekenweek). This year it takes place from 4 until 15 October and the theme is ‘scary books’.

During this week ABC will offer an English-language selection of scary children’s books, chosen by Tatia Gruenbaum from The Little English Library. You can find the list of titles here (scroll down to Highlight Collections -> Kids Book Week 2017).

If you spend € 20 on Children’s books during this special week you can get a lovely book like The Midnight Library by Kazuno Kohara or There’s a Snake in My School by David Walliams for FREE!

Tatia also found some online activities that tie in to the books on the list above, for an even livelier reading.  Spot the differences on Alan, color your own monster in the hood, and make your own collage of fears

A new selection of discounted Children’s Books also arrived at our stores recently. Now you can buy Operation Alphabet by Al MacCuish, The Selfish Giant by Oscar Wilde and A Child of Books by Oliver Jeffers for prices like 5 or 10 euros! Come and have a look on our shelves.
