Little Lessons: Books galore at NoQ Store {and a $20 voucher giveaway!}

Update: NoQ store has unfortunately closed its doors since this post, so I’ve updated the links here to other online sources.

This week’s Little Lessons is about lessons we can learn from books. I was introduced to NoQ store recently and purchased a few books for the kids.

Here are some of them:

orange pear apple bear bookOrange Pear Apple Bear by Emily Gravett

Vera is learning how to read so I thought she might like Orange Pear Apple Bear. Yes, it may only have four words, in various sequences but it definitely helped to give her confidence a boost as she was able to read it after one or two tries. The illustrations are interesting and act as conversation starters.

Good for toddlers and starting out readers.

My many coloured days by Dr SeussMy Many Coloured Days by Dr Seuss

A fun and colourful book to help little ones learn about the different emotions that a person can feel. From happy yellow to dreary brown, how emotions can go up and down!

With lovely painted illustrations of how each colour can stand for different moods and emotions, this book is simple and delightful to read.

Green eggs and ham by Dr SeussGreen Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss
This is a good book to teach children the value of trying new things. In classic Dr Seuss’ rhymes, it’s easy to read and fun to listen to.

Try it. Who knows, you might just like it. 😉

I want my hat backI Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen

This award winning book centres around a bear who is hunting for his lost hat. He asks the other creatures that he meets whether they have seen his hat and they all reply no in a variety of different ways.

Finally he realises that he did see his hat and he claims it back in a wickedly funny way. (The kids didn’t quite get the humour but I did.)

A great book for teaching honesty.


Overall, I found the shopping experience at NoQ store pretty smooth. I received my books in around two weeks, quite similar to if I were to order from the book depository.

I compared prices using and found the prices to be very competitive and comparable to book depository. While NoQ didn’t come up as top all of the time, I found it was always in the top two spots (for the books that I was interested to buy).

But hey, don’t just take my word for it. You can try it out yourself. I’m giving away a $20 NoQ store shopping voucher to one lucky reader. Just enter via the rafflecopter app below.

    I have ‘Orange Pear Apple Bear’ at home too. Find it quite an interesting book. Simple yet can help to stimulate the children’s imagination. Nice play of words and illustrations.

    I would buy some Kumon workbooks and Ladybird Early Reader series.

    Ooops, sorry, I posted wrongly just now. Should have posted as a new comment.

    I would buy My First Classical Music Book.

    I love NoQ as well. Prices are very competitive at even cheaper than Books Depository or equivalent most of the time.
