3 4 Friday: Quiz question number 1: What shall we do with the kids this weekend?

It's a week until our annual Mostly Bookbrains Literary Quiz for charity - the questions are now set, prizes have been collected and the infamous bookswap table is being prepared. This year we are raising money for Abingdon-based national charity 'The Pelvic Partnership' who will also be running a bar and providing food on the evening.

There are still places available for both teams and individuals - so learn more about the quiz here.

I wonder if there may be any clues in today's 3 4 Friday?

As we approach the end of the Easter holidays, if you’re looking to get out and about with children this weekend ‘The Usborne Big Spotters Sticker Book’ and ‘Spot the Bird’ are two sticker books that are ideal introductions for children to start spotting and taking a keen interest in the nature around them. And the Usborne ‘Illustrated Book of Nature’ also gives a more detailed insight into the world around, from the biodiversity of woodland, where flowers get their names, to fossil hunting.


Nature books are the perfect way to make walks more interesting and fun for children – and helps adults with all the background they need to know for any questions en route!

Of course if you’ll be trying to keep the children busy indoors you may like to know that the fabulous Jonny Duddle (famed for being the main illustrator behind the Aardman ‘Pirates’ film) has two themed activity books, ‘Pirates Activity Book’ and ‘Pirates Colouring Book’, bursting with pictures to draw and colour, dot-to-dots and word searches to name just a few of the activities children can do. These books are based on the three action-packed picture books that bestselling creator, Jonny Duddle, has written.

And just in from those craft-masters Klutz we love ‘Clay Charms’ a kit to design charms, clay to make them and all the bits and pieces you need to make charms at home, all in one fantastic book.

Klutz do these things marvellously - and if you want any other recommendations, you know where to come this Saturday...
