This week I will be putting together some summer holiday boxes for children. A box containing a few things to keep children occupied during the school break – a child version, in a way, of our Tree House Box of Treasures. Boxes will contain two books and a mixture of other things: pen or pencil, notebook, a Lost Words trail sheet, bookmark, badges, puzzles, etc. Some may be marked as containing books that may appeal more to girls, or the type of books that are in the box, but I obviously avoid anything too prescriptive in the way of gender differences – it just gives some idea. Boxes are £7, and will be available from Saturday 20 July.
I can also do holiday reading boxes for adults, if you want to take a punt on some surprise books! 4 books for £6. I will make some by genre (crime and thrillers, chick lit, etc) and some that will just be a mixture of general fiction.
I will also make up some of our Boxes of Treasures to sell in the shop. These are £10, and contain two books and a number of little extras and treats.
So if you want some summer reading, or something for your children or grandchildren, come and see us from next Saturday! We will also be open on Sunday 21 July for Kenilworth Food Festival.
