About Me

Hi my name is Melissa Jordan. I am an independent seller of children’s books, based in Cambourne, near Cambridge. My curated collection of children’s books includes books for all ages from babies to young adult, from a range of publishers. I passionately believe that every child can enjoy reading for pleasure. Whilst some children will appear to read anything, others are more particular about what they read.  The way a story is written and what is is about will make a difference to whether a child finds a book they want to read. The good news is that there is a great variety of books to choose from. When it comes to buying books, and especially my chapter books, many customers comment that they haven’t come across the story before.

I have been a seller of children’s books for over four years. The more I have found out about children’s books and about ways of encouraging reading for pleasure, the more I have wanted to share this with others, so that more children can find out about the fantastic variety of children’s books out there. To state the obvious you can’t choose a book you do not know exists! Having spent nearly 10 years working with young people before my children were born, and being a parent for 9 years, I know that children and young people always surprise you. Many of them do care about what they read and the world we live in. Give them a ‘heart felt’ story where the characters and setting have meaning to them and they will want to read it.
