Every parent understands the importance of reading to their children. However, one major headache most parents have is how to select the best children's books out there amongst the millions of titles available online. With bookstores like Borders, Kinokuniya, and MPH close to extinction in Singapore, gone are the days where parents could conveniently head to a bookstore to personally preview the titles before purchase.
Here at Josh & Cherie Books, we provide a monthly children’s book subscription for ages 0-7 years old. Leave the hassle of selecting the books to us. Just let us know your child’s age-group, and conveniently receive a box of curated quality titles at your doorstep each month!
In addition to a monthly book subscription, it’s also good to supplement your child’s library with additional titles depending on their interests. Here’s a list of our favourite classic children book authors and their most popular titles.
