  • PhonicBooks

    Recommended by laura

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image
    PhonicBooks design and publish decodable books to help beginner readers and older, catch up readers. Decodable books are books a child can read independently once they have been taught the phonics at that level. Decodable books consolidate the phonics taught in the classroom or at home. With step-by-step progression, the child succeeds at each level while learning the phonics needed to become a fluent reader. This approach develops confident readers with reliable reading strategies. The level of your child’s reading and his/her age will determine which books are suitable for him/her. There are story books for age 2-5, beginner readers aged 3-8, beginner readers aged 5-8 and catch up readers for 8-14 year olds.

    "Mi hijo de 7 años lee los libros a ratitos, los remira e intenta entender lo que lee. El hecho de que intente relacionar los sonidos ya me parece un buen inicio, muy distinto a otros métodos de aprendizaje, y en ese sentido ofrece la ventaja de ser novedoso y lúdico." (Laura, mother of a 7 year old in Barcelona)

    "En relación a los libros de Phonic Books Ltd., puedo decir que a mi hijo le gustan mucho, son muy animados y amenos, incitan a la curiosidad de los niños por los distintos personajes, que están muy bien caracterizados, y por tanto aprenden fácilmente." (Maica, mother of a 7 year old in Saragossa)

    "It comes ready to go in a green durable canvas bag that can zipper close (so important to containment!) and has a carrying handle. Inside, you’ll find all sorts of goodies to keep kids aged 3-6 (there’s a separate one for older children) entertained. Let me tell you, it is LOADED with activities. Some of these include an age-appropriate coloring book, doodle pad with stickers, maze book, crayons, pencil, crafts for the making, small toys, as well as travel-sized tissues, sanitizing wipes and band-aids. There is also a separate plastic bag enclosed containing activities and toys to keep in reserve for the return trip (or another occasion). Which, when you think about, is totally key. Turns out we’ve not only used (and benefitted) from it during our sanity-testing road trip a month ago, but scores of times since – grabbing it any time we anticipate needing a little Elise-distraction time, even while at home. And there’s still TONS left for her to do." (KC, Sept 2009)

    "Just in case anyone hasnt tried this website ..... Ive had a fantastic experience shopping for healthy, organic baby & toddler food/snacks at
    Baby Deli Good prices and great service - they delivered in 24 hours ! Well worth it !"
    (LP Dec 09)

    "My sister came across the shop Baby Deli in Madrids "barrio de Salamanca"  and was impressed by how lovely it all was...she sent me a comment about  it through Facebook the next day....I checked out their website: www.babydeliworld.com from Sitges, where I live, and decided to try out  their online shopping service and buy some organic food on offer I was  familiar with, having spent the last summer holidays in the UK, for my   16-month old son... Surprisingly, I received the parcel just about 26 hours later (even thoughthat day was La Mercè, a holiday in Barcelona)... I really think their website is worth a visit and wish they had one of  their stores in BCN....in fact I would love to be the one to open it!" ( Paloma, Oct 2010)

    Comments:
    "Thank you for sending the Kangaroo sling so quickly, it arrived in 2 days! It was great to able to carry our baby around so comfortably and the sling was really nice and light, so he was never hot and normally went straight to sleep (a bonus). It was much better than taking the pram out with us all the time and my son was happier being close to us. Thanks too for the many emails answering our questions and worries about how to use the sling, my wife really appreciated it and in the end she found it really easy, just as you said she would! We will be using the sling all the time now and would recommend it to anyone who asks" (RM, July 2010)

    Recommended by Charmaine Lay

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

    A huge range of baby and maternity products.
    www.mothercare.es  

    Comments: 
    "I discovered Mothercare Iberica when we were searching for basic baby furniture and were horrified by the prices of any aesthetically decent baby furniture in Barcelona. Unfortunately, they do not have a branch in Catalonia, but they do have a catalogue (which is more updated than their web site) and items can be ordered by telephone. Once the bank transfer is made, they deliver the items to your door (you can also pay by "contra reembolso"). We bought the moses basket, a really great travel cot, a cot-bed and mattress as well as a few other bits and pieces. The mattress is a much better one than we could find in any of the baby shops in Barcelona (Rillo, Rabassa, Nonetes etc.).. Its a sprung mattress with a zip on/off washable "coolmax" layer, and the cot-bed was really well priced for its good quality and aesthetic. However baby clothes at Mothercare Iberica are as ridiculously expensive as in any other shop in Barcelona. For example. A set of three plain white baby-grows that costs 8 pounds in the UK is sold for 28.90€ in Spain" (CL, May 2008)

    Comments:
    "I recently discovered that Dreambag sleeping bags now have a Spanish online store (www.thedreambag.es) which is great since I was given one by my mum when my little girl was born and wanted to get a summer one, but they wouldn´t ship here from the UK. The service was really quick and friendly. The websight is bilingual but I think its run by an expat. Cheaper than Grobags and wash and dry really fast. Highly recommended!" (PF, July 2011)

    "Just discovered this range of eco friendly baby products in a pharmacy and am really impressed. The range includes bottles, dummies, teethers, soap, baby hairbrushes, bibs and towels amongst other items. All products are made from 100% organic, natural materials. I bought my baby girl a natural Iris Root teether attached to a wooden soother chain which will hopefully help soothe her gums when the time her teeth begin to come through. The products are pricey but look very nicely made and its nice to find some natural products" (LB, Sep 2011)
