Little bookworms are going to love the new partnership between BEAR Nibbles and Puffin Books! BEAR & Puffin’s Big Book Club is an online hub packed full of resources and book related activities to keep little ones busy. A new ‘Book of the Month’ is launched every month, these include favourite childhood classics as well as new releases. Create a reading den, stock up on your favourite BEAR Alphabites and spend the perfect afternoon reading a good book. Let us show you how we did it!
Creating the perfect reading den
The blanket den under the dining room table has been firmly confined to my childhood memories. My lucky children are not short of den building materials. When they wanted to establish their own Book Club at home, they got out their favourite teepee. This is the perfect size for the two of them and their favourite cuddle toys. They added a cosy rug, BEAR & Puffin Big Book Club cushion and Reading Cave sign to keep any grown-ups out.
My 5 year old put on her favourite snuggly pyjamas to wear in their reading cave and they both wore their BEAR reading ears and Big Book Club badges, to show they were members of this exclusive club.
Snacks to fuel big imaginations
Now, reading requires energy and what better way to fuel little minds than with a delicious bowl of yummy BEAR Alphabites? Did you know that BEAR Alphabites contain no refined sugar or salt? Not only are BEAR Alphabites seriously yummy, in honour of the partnership between BEAR Nibbles and Puffin Books, you will find special limited edition story book magnets inside packs of Alphabites!
We were sent some of the first ‘Books of the Month’, which have been carefully selected for little cubs of all ages and include both picture and story books. We received Dogger by Shirley Hughes, Brown Bear Brown Bear, What do you care? by Bill Martin, Jr., Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul by Jeff Kinney and The Borrowers by Mary Norton. It was lovely to see some of our favourites, as well as be introduced to new books.
Inquisitive little ones will love to discover all the fun activities waiting for them at BEAR & Puffin’s Big Book Club online. They can discover fun new characters, read extracts of each months’ book, download colouring and activity sheets for each letter or book of the month. They can sign up to become a member of the club and receive monthly updates and competitions via email.
