Books for 3 year olds | BOOK KIDS


Reading to children from an early age gives them the best start in life.

Before people said “There’s an app for that”, they used to say “There’s a book for that”!! And when it comes to children’s books it is so true.

Book Kids provides parents, grandparents, friends and extended families great book, education and gift ideas for preschool aged children.

Books make great presents and are a fantastic alternative to “plastic presents” that kids get so much of these days.

A child’s language skills and general development benefit greatly from constant listening and reading.

We are firm believers of the Three Book Rule (aim to read children three books each time before they go to sleep) starting from when your child is a baby.

Repetition and habit is key to developing a vast vocabulary and strong language skills in young children.  They’ll get a headstart in life, and you’ll  enjoy spending time with them watching them learn and grow.

Book Kids provides a one-stop recommendation source for great book and educational gift ideas for kids and the best thing is – this is a FREE resource!
