Once a month Parragon books send my boys or me a book or something bookish (like Life Canvas stationary) to have a little look at. Sadly it is a struggle to get my boys to read anything at the moment, which is why I am doing a roundup style post.
Books can make great presents, especially if you aren’t really sure what to buy. My personal favourite of these is the glider kit, it is so retro looking and would be a great gift for a school buddy or a young relative. I used to love getting books that weren’t strictly books – things like cardboard dress-up dolls or make-a-scene books.

Paper is just for writing stuff on and doing homework right? Wrong! Paper is for folding up and throwing around. It’s for making an awesome airforce of paper planes and incredible flying objects. So, forget what you thought about paper, grab your planes and get ready to fly!
