If you've been following my blog for a while you'll know that I love to read and have started to introduce Ava to some of my favourite children's books. As a child I could lose myself in Beatrix Potter tales, Enid Blyton stories and Harry Potter books.
So I find it incredibly shocking that the UK has one of the worst literacy and numeracy levels in the developed world and 8.5 million adults in our country have the literacy and numeracy levels of a 10 year old, which is why when I was contacted by the people at Cardooo, I was behind them 100%. I find it so sad that children are picking up books less and less.
The people at Cardooo have created wonderful greetings cards that contain puzzles, games and short stories which are proving a big hit with children.
As they are short but fun and colourful they are keeping children engaged and are helping with their literacy and numeracy skills. We were kindly sent one of their cards and received the short story "Three Little Pigs". It is cleverly put together and you also receive the envelope for it to be posted in. The pictures are lovely and colourful and it definitely kept Ava entertained.
I think these are a fantastic idea, what child wouldn't love to receive one of these in the post?! The cards start from £3.50 which I think is a fantastic price, I have paid more for a standard, boring greetings card! You can see their full range here, they have a card for every occasion and have just bought out a short story Christmas range. I can guarantee these cards will put a smile on someone's face!
*We were sent the Cardooo card free of charge as part of this review but as usual thoughts are 100% my own
