Jane Nissen Books

ACHUKA would like to wish Jane Nissen Books a very Happy Christmas.

"The purpose of this personal venture is to bring back into print some of the best-loved children's books of the 20th century and to enable a new generation of readers to discover for themselves high-quality, timeless titles that should not be lost." Jane Nissen


It's particularly good to see, in the current batch of new titles, Bogwoppit by Ursula Moray Williams reprinted, complete with the orignal chapter-heading illustrations by Shirley Hughes.

Ursula Moray Williams, who died only a few years ago (2006) aged ninety-five, had a fantastically fluid and natural writing style, perfect for reading aloud.

There are some real quality reading experiences that I found for my kids at readeo.com

more than the selection of quality books, the kids can video-conference and read online with their grandparents who live far away. Its awesome technology! Bed-time stories are so much funner when grandpa tells them.

Just thought it usefull
