We’ve have lots of animal and environmental themed books for you to borrow both from the library and from the BorrowBox app. Some of the recommended titles available in both formats include:

The Magic Ocean Slide by Emma Beswetherick and Anna Woodbine. Perfect for younger readers, this short chapter book follows best friends Katy, Cassie and Zia on a series of amazing adventures as they work together to save the planet.

My Name is River by Emma Rea. When Dylan overhears his dad say that their farm has been sold to a global pharmaceutical company, he decides he has to make them change their minds and sets off for Brazil, but things don’t go at all to plan…..

Non-fiction isn’t forgotten either with RSPB Nature Guide: Wildlife by Catherine Brereton. This trusty companion guide uncovers all the mysteries of the extraordinary wildlife that surrounds us with information about over 195 different animals, plants and other wildlife.


Ebooks with no queues!

Harper Collins have kindly gifted 19 children’s ebooks to libraries with unlimited downloads until the end of August. All are available on our Borrow Box page:

They include titles by Michael Morpurgo, Ben Fogle and David Baddiel so plenty to keep youngsters reading over the summer.
