This series of book are brilliant. One page of reading per day on a really wide variety of subjects including poetry, often prompting further reading on the subject of the day. I got these to promote extra reading in my children as an alternative to simply fiction.
The service from schoolbooksireland was also top notch, the books couriered out the next day.
