I discovered an amazing website that sells loads of English books, learning to read books, activity books etc at a great price. The best deals are when you buy sets, so you can get 10 great books for 10 pounds! So a pound a book, which is amazing! Some sets we have bought and loved are Julia Donaldson books, Elmer, Paddington. We also bought phonics, learning to read sets etc. The website is The Book People. I am not sure where they deliver to (other then the UK where we are based, but check it out). If they don't deliver to you, keep this in mind if you ever travel to London, then you can order. www.thebookpeople.co.uk
Does anyone know if there is a French equivalent? I would love to be able to get some good deals on French books. I spend LOADS now on French books.
Also, if there are other websites you know of for different languages, it might help others who are looking for good deals on books, so post them as well.

Mayken: We visited a Loire Valley château yesterday. Our daughter got a kids' activity booklet and we parents got the regular tour booklet in French. She asked for one in German (our ml). When I later asked her why, she said "Because I'm a German-speaker!"
