    Dear Friends,

    In this time of uncertainty, when the world seems almost unrecognisable, we would like to send out our love and best wishes to our readers both near and far. 

    We’re in awe of the people being creative and supportive to their communities. In these tough times we all have to stick together (even if it’s only possible virtually). 

    We’re working hard to continue to bring you our beautiful books and we will carry on sharing details of them in the hope that we can cast some light and enjoyment to your day. 

    Here, we’ve gathered together a selection of our books which we hope will offer you and your children activities to share, adventures to escape to and ways to learn together. You can find more of our beautiful books by browsing here on our website.

    We would urge you to support your local bookshop online where you can, but in order to make it as easy as possible for people to have access to books we have introduced free postage on all UK orders on our website to help too. Also, if you subscribe to our mailing list you can get one free book with any order placed on our site. Happy reading.

    With very best wishes,

    The Floris Books team
