  • Counting on You

    Counting on You

    by Corinne Fenton

    A celebration of the strength that love can provide through the highs and lows of everyday life. On race-with-the-wind days, reach-for-the-sky days, sail-to-tomorrow days, and on the days I could fly! On those tummy-too-full days, I can’t-find-my-socks days, sometimes-I-forget days, and on the days when I cry . . . you hug me closer, squeeze me tighter, make things better, you’re always there. Beautiful illustrations by Robin Cowcher created in a limited colour palette make it a perfect gift for young and old. View extract

  • Hugless Douglas

    Hugless Douglas

    by David Melling

    Hugless Douglas will warm your heart: this is an adorable picture book about a bear called Douglas. He's a big bear with an even bigger heart and wants to share his love. When he wakes up one day needing a hug (we all have days like that) he sets about finding the right person for the job and yet no one quite fits the bill. I am reminded of the wonderful similarity to Goldilocks and the Three Bears and indeed, many nursery rhymes and fairy tales in which...

  • Not Now, Bernard

    Not Now, Bernard

    by David McKee

    The perennial and well-loved classic picture book story about parents too preoccupied to notice their own child. Without doubt, all parents are sometimes (or often) guilty of ignoring the requests of their children for attention because the parents are trying to accomplish some (to them) important task. 'Not Now, Bernard' illustrates the folly of this policy and the disastrous consequences for both Bernard's existence and for a moster's self-respect.

  • Someday

    Someday

    by Alison McGhee. Illustrated by

    This book is beautiful and moving. The illustrations are cute and fun, there's very little text, just one or two sentences on each page under the drawing. In simple beautiful words the author takes her daughter from her birth to the day when she will be a mother herself, and ultimately be old and cherish the memory of her Mom. It is amazing how such simple illustrations and words can convey such strong emotions. This is a book that every Mom will treasure. Reading it will likely bring tears...
