New Release books July


Look, we understand here at KIDDO that parents don’t get a lot of chance to read; we’re too busy doing school pick up, making dinner, wiping bums… the list goes on! But when we do get those hallowed moments to sit down with a book, it better be a page turner.

So we’ve done all the hard work for you, and put together our top picks of the new release books for July. We’ve also included a few for the kids too, because grubby little fingers love brand new pages to turn too!
