Stay sane and keep the kids entertained with these books
As many families in Australia (and the world) prepare to be spending more time indoors, books can be a welcome (and educational) distraction for your little one!
Books encourage creativity and empathy in children. Books are also a great way to encourage learning in homes. Whether your kid is brainy, creative or a wiggle worm, we’ve got books aplenty to keep them occupied while you’re busy working.
And if you have access to a printer, you can use some of these Treehouse colouring-in activities to pass the time as well. Plus check out these Crack Up colouring-in pages too.
