Edinburgh Libraries Online is an excellent resource for children and adults. The Kidzone has a mixture of informative resources to stretch young minds, useful sites to help with learning and homework, and plenty of fun links too.

Both adults and children can download audio books, ebooks and newspapers direct to their mobile or tablet device. Handy for those who love to read and all downloaded publications can be taken away on holiday with you… leaving more space in your case for holiday shopping!

To find out more about why sleep is so important and some useful hints and tips on how to help your child get into a better sleeping routine. Take a look at The Good Night Guide For Children on the link below.
