Walker Books £12.99
This read-aloud story is just perfect. How a parent tries to coax their little one to eat something that is good for them, and realise that often reverse psychology is a very useful tool to remember. Really funny.
Andersen Press £12.99
This is a very important story about Asiya’s first day of hijab that echoes out into a universal story of new experiences and the unbreakable bond shared by siblings.
Thames & Hudson £12.95
A very lovely book, so simply told about how things change, things fly away, things disappear but there is one thing that lasts forever.
Simon & Schuster £6.99
We loved this book so much that we have to include it even though it isn’t published until April 2nd. Keep an eye out for it. A first for Richard Jones to both illustrate and write and it is beautiful. Will Perdu ever find a home in the busy city?? ADORABLE.
Thames & Hudson £11.95
Deeply reminiscent of the late John Burningham’s work this is a story about a small child trying to stop the day from ending with a handful of animal friends. Borka makes an appearance. The illustrations are a delight. One to keep for always.
Orchard Books paperback £6.99
It's a beautiful day and Worrysaurus has planned a special picnic but a small butterfly of worry starts fluttering in his tummy, what if it rains? what if he gets lost? What if? What if? This is something for every little worrier, utterly adorable, loveable and very reassuring.
Andersen Press £12.99
A great way to learn about pesky problems and how they need to be confronted and told to get lost. Gently funny and very readable this is a great way to keep the conversation about what is going on in our children’s minds open.
Big Picture Press £14.99
They say that a picture can paint a thousand words. Here the sublime illustrations capture everyday animal similies creating a blissful menagerie of feelings big and small. We’d like all of these drawings on my wall.

Mabel doesn’t like books, but everyone keeps giving her more and more of them, at birthdays, at Christmas and for special ‘treats’. She’s managing to find uses for them for climbing and juggling and reaching, but suddenly the books decide enough is enough. Mabel is in for a treat.
Such a gorgeous joy-filled book about looking for Happiness and finding it in all sorts of unlikely places. The illustrations are exquisite conveying a wonderful message that Happiness, in the end, begins with you.
