Grandpa Green
By Lane Smith

This is a gentle book about memory, aging and the love of family. Great grandpa has created a wonderful garden where his memories are kept alive in the shapes carved out in his topiary trees. Each tree symbolises some aspect of his past and becomes part of the legacy he will leave behind. The artwork is beautiful but understated. This truly is a lovely book to read with young ones.

Press here
By Herve Tullet

This book is just a delight. It is very funny and very clever. The reader is required to press buttons on the page, once done, upon turning the page are met with suprise and wonder at what they have suddenly changed or created. Having read it with classes of five year olds – they truly believe the book is magic. And why wouldn’t you? When read to classes of ten year olds they just delight in the humour and laugh all the way through. This is a great book just for fun but would be great for helping with instructional writing. It really is one out of the box!

It’s a little book
By Lane Smith

I loved the first book and trailer for It’s a book. Now there is another version as a board book.
Really very sweet.

Splat the cat
By Rob Scotton

If you haven’t read any of the Splat the cat books you are missing out. Delightful and cheeky and great for younger readers. Great to snuggle up with a wee one and read aloud.
