Aldi launches first ever Summer Reading range with children's books costing as little as £1.99
Snap up new children's books for as little as £1.99 thanks to a supermarket's first ever Summer Reading range.
With libraries still closed and families keen to find things to keep children still learning at home occupied, Aldi hopes this week's book launch will provide families with some new and reasonably priced reading material.
Aldi says it has everything from paperbacks perfect for book-obsessed teens to Disney and Marvel tales that families can pop into their basket alongside their weekly shop from this week.
The books are also available to buy online from the 'Specialbuys' section of its website under 'summer essentials' where some titles have already sold out.
Amongst those on sale are five re-imagined Disney stories full of familiar characters from the big screen - with each book costing just £1.99.
Families can choose new bedtime reading from Frozen's Anna and Elsa, Moana, Belle or Ant Man amongst the characters with stories such as Anna, Elsa and the Secret River, Moana and the Ocean to Night Night, Groot and Grow up, Ant-Man!
Whilst for older readers there is the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney and Lightening Girl stories written by presenter and singer Alesha Dixon together with a number of reads for older teenagers and adults too.
Paperbacks for children and older readers start from £2.99.
According to charity The Reading Agency, which works to promote the benefits and joys of reading, 31% of people are turning more to books for company since lockdown began with a particular spike amongst young people where 45% of those surveyed say they are now reading more than before.
