This is a great time of year to talk about hobbies! The outdoors is becoming colder and children will be spending more time indoors and may find themselves bored, and you may more for them than to sit in front of a screen for hours. You may also already be thinking about Christmas gifts so you can be prepared and spread the cost out a little. This week the focus for What to Read Wednesday are hobbies; from time-tested postage stamp collections and chess to more modern Lego creations, there is a hobby for everyone, it’s just a matter of trying a few out to see what’s most suitable. To help you out, I’ve gathered up a collection of children’s hobby books that your children may be interested in. If your children already have a hobby, let me know what it is in the comments!
