Children books by age

Baby and toddler

It’s never too early to introduce your child to books and reading. Even young babies can start relating the images they see on the page to the world around them, and get used to having a book in their hands. We have a wide range of beautiful books created especially for very young children. These include bath books, board books, touch-and-feel books and a variety of early learning products to help children develop a love of books and learning.

3 to 5 years

Look out for the bright and colourful activity books in our home learning ranges as well as hundreds of character books, activity books, storybooks and treasuries to keep your preschooler entertained for hours.

6 to 8 years

It’s time to keep that early love of reading going with stimulating material for developing, curious minds. We’ve got the perfect storybooks, non-fiction reference books and activity books. Smart-KidsLetterland and Kumon workbooks will help you support this critical stage of your child’s development.

9 to 12 years

Most kids are reading – and thinking – independently by the time they reach grade 4. That means they need books they can really get their teeth into.  We’ve got exciting fiction and our range of non-fiction titles is particularly useful for project work.

We have fresh, contemporary literature written specifically to interest young South Africans. Choose from the excellent range of literature titles from our Maskew Miller Longman Literature titles, African Writers Series and Young Africa Series.
