    Anyone would like to give story books for free?

    Hi all,

    I am a new mum (with a 4-month old boy) and would like to see if anyone wants to give away free story books (Chinese/English, for babies & children).

    I would like to start reading stories to my baby, maybe try to read for bed time ^.^

    Thanks.

    I don't have any story books (yet), but you may try borrowing them from the public libraries.

    Hi Gataloca,

    Yes, I was planning to bring him to public library when he gets older.

    I saw the one opposite Victoria Park has got a large area for children. Look quite nice.

    Oh, you don't have to bring him to the public library. You can actually borrow books out from there... I think you can take out 6 books per library card. You can borrow them for 2 weeks, and you can renew them 2 or 3 times (I think) if you wish.

    I think it is an excellent option, as you have lot of story books to choose from, and you will not end up with lot of books at home.

    Yes, you can renew up to 5 times on the internet so you won't even have to go in. You could also get your husband to join and then that's 12 books that you can borrow in one go which would be plenty!

    That's true, purchasing all the books at home stocks up the room.

    Maybe I should try borrowing as well from the library.

    Thank you for your advices!
