A great way of taking up time and things to do is getting stuck into books. To avoid the length of screen time that most kids are getting, why not tempt them with real-life books?

Amazon knows this and has a great 3 for 2 deal on Children’s books right now

These books are as low as $2.66 each.

These are PERFECT for adding to Easter baskets this week, or sending to kiddos that you miss. No coupon is required for this promotion. Simply add three books in the sale to your cart and the lowest price will be removed. Some book quantities are limited, so my recommendation would be to order ASAP. (Amazon affiliate links are used)

Below I have listed a bunch of children’s books in the $3-$6 range, making these books as low as $2.66 each when you add three two your cart.

But, this is NOT an exhaustive list. There are many chapters books and some DVDs as well.

Our favorites are:
