Have you ever thought about the difference between softback or hardback books? Sometimes there’s a lot to consider; the look and feel, whether you want a more lightweight book for travelling or a hardback to take on the beach so the spine stays together in the heat. Don’t know what we mean? Just try taking a softback children’s book into the sweltering sun and watch the pages weep.
Softbacks are useful because they’re light and portable, especially when one arm is burdened with your handbag and the other arm with your child. But a hardback children’s book is ideal for lasting gifts and here you’ll find our best varieties of both.
