Hi! I’m Katie, mum to Alexander and owner of Alexander’s Books.
I sell Scholastic educational packs and books from over 60 different publishers, as well as offering home tuition and support for home schooling parents. Working with Scholastic I help to raise money for my chosen charity, Milton Keynes Hospital Charity; they’re a fab cause and do so much good for our local hospital. Funds I raise go towards the maternity and neo-natal services; after having my own son there after a difficult pregnancy I wanted to find a way to give back.
I’m also studying for an MA in Childhood and Youth, and used to work as a teacher, specialising in special needs education.
Running a business from home works for me as it fits around my study and research and allows me to spend more time with Alexander; I’m a single mum so flexibility is important to me.
Plus their products are fantastic! These are amazing! We have the sticker chart and my son is now familiar with all the Foundation year words, ready for starting school in two weeks.
These magnets could go on the fridge or even a magnetic whiteboard in a playroom or bedroom; seeing the words every day helps make them easier to recognise and so improves reading skills. Only £4.99
Books can be purchased from the shop here:https://book-parties.scholastic.co.uk/…/mk-hospital-fundrai…
I can help select books if you’re unsure about what to buy, and of course Alexander himself likes to offer his own reviews of the products!
