At Wild Thing Books, we believe in the power of reading. But don’t take our word for it, there have been numerous studies stating that reading to your child from a young age has invaluable benefits, including comfort, relaxation, increased confidence as well as feeding their imagination and growing their vocabulary.
Here are just some of the benefits of reading to children:
Developing a bond with your baby
Improved language skills. A larger vocabulary is often an indication of better academic performance.
Cognitive development is supported
Develop imagination and creativity
Develop empathy and a deeper understanding of the world around them
Social skills and interactions improve
Develop a life-long love of reading
Here at Wild Thing Books, we want you to enjoy your time reading with your children, so our books are carefully chosen to delight children and adults alike. Think awe-inspiring stories and eye popping animations!

We also do one off boxes for little ones starting school, expecting a new sibling and to help parents broach the difficult subject of bereavement.
Don’t forget, we make a donation to UK Reads for every box sold. We believe every child should have the opportunity to excel and this starts with reading. Did you know that four out of ten children on free school meals are not able to read well by the age of 11? Let’s close the gap before it’s too late!
