As restrictions are easing and museums are opening, being a nanny in London, I wanted to share my love for London with you all, through…you guessed it…books!

There is so much to do in London, and even if you’re not living here, your little ones can learn about it through pages.

For our older readers, The Story of London by Rob Lloyd Jones goes from the Romans to now. If you do live here, I really recommend the Museum of London.
For our little ones, this lovely visual hard book by Jane Foster depicts iconic London things.
Without being in London, you can create a mini city with your Lego bricks with this amazing book by Warren Elsmore, there really is #moretobooks when you can create iconic London things in your own home.
Or for our little ones, find things in this visual “search,find,match” book illustrated by Marion Billet.

However, if you’re lucky enough to live here or visit…

This clipboard by Erik Nash and illustrated by Clair Rossiter can bring London to life and keep boredom at bay, while learning at the same time.

I rarely share books for adults but these will help you bring learning to life with your children by sharing walks and things to do.

Jimi Famirewa has described all the amazing things to do in London and categorises them for your little ones to your big ones taking the guess work away.
My family love walking. With this book, you can take your children around London bringing history to life but also showing there is #moretobooks by seeing places from books and films in the city. Becky Jones and Claire Lewis have done all the hard work for you.
Maybe one to do as a family, this journal has pictures to colour in and activities to do. Might be fun!

What’s your favourite thing to do in London?
