Being a parent is absolutely the best feeling in the world. However, raising a child, who is totally dependent on you to seek valuable lessons for life, is no easy task. Therefore, inculcating good habits, right from the infant stage of a child makes them become a better individual later in life.


Our team at Teatime Bookshop realises the importance of such good habits and encourages Reading to be adopted well early in life. To assist in the very objective, we have designed & created a list of ten very interesting books for children to read before they turn twelve.
