"We believe that every child should have the opportunity to indulge in books"
Irene adds that teaching young children to read helps them develop their language skills because "storybooks encourage them to think, dream, and unleash their imagination in all ways possible."
There are close to 10,000 books available for children of all ages and include every genre you can think of!
Check out some of their most popular titles:
1. Your kids will fall in love with the Roald Dahl collection illustrated by Quentin Blake
2. We all have memories of snuggling up with a great Enid Blyton book
3. The Disney books contain all their beloved classics as well as newer releases
4. Dick King-Smith is my favourite children's author!
5. Great reference books for your little explorer
6. And picture books galore! Perfect for young readers ;)
All the books are carefully screened and selected from the UK to ensure kids bring home quality books
Although the couple are not currently taking book donations from the public, they are considering offering these services in the future.
Not sure where to start? Irene suggests board books for babies and picture books for toddlers.
"Visuals play a critical role in learning, teaching kids how to make references and develop self-awareness. These pictures are more than illustrations to children. Open up a picture book for your child and they instantly glow with enthusiasm. They look at the pictures almost as they would watch a movie," explains Irene.
"After they 'graduate' from picture books and become independent readers, children are able to tell you what books to buy :)"
Irene's personal favourite children's books are "everything by the classic children's author, Julia Donaldson."
"From the much-loved Gruffalo to the charming Stick Man and the bumbling dragon in the Zog, Julia's books are always filled with fun rhymes, pleasing rhythm, colourful and wonderful illustrations."
