Kisses in your Heart has words that are reassuring and will help your children overcome fears by realising their loved one is still with them no matter where they are.
Heidi Cooper Smith made me want to smile, cry, laugh and tap into every emotion possible when reading this story. She has beautifully captured a child’s feelings about new situations and the illustrations are just WOW!
Tiggy and the Magic Paintbrush is an inspiring series by the talented Zanni Louise and Gillian Flint, that centres around the themes of friendship, imagination and creativity.
This book is adorable, fun and quality reading material from Nosy Crow. These books continue delight me in how well they have been written for young children, and how well they support other developmental areas such as find motor and communication skills. There is so much to love about this book for 1 to 3 year olds and this is for sure going to be well read in storytime this year for me.
One of the first things I thought about when reading this book is that my mum is going to be horrified when she reads my review, she hates the F word…the Fart word…it is one of her least favourite words. But then I realised she also has a sense of humor and she might overlook her least favourite words…maybe.
With a title like Hug Machine there was no way I could go past this book, hugs are one of the most simple acts one can do but is also one of the most caring and kind things that can be done. It is books like this, spreading love and happiness that I want to share with children.
Sometimes I wonder whether picture books are written for us the adults too, or whether something just resonates with us that it just feels that way. This is how this book was for me, first of all I loved it – its hard not to love Aaron Blabey books – and second I think we have all had or have a guff in our lives whether it be a fabric or human friend.
The colours draw you into the story on those first few pages of the book, the shades of green give you the feeling of being out among the trees and plants in the garden, the tortoise face a beautiful rosy complexion whose eyes show an old but warm and happy soul. The colours and illustrations continue to amaze as I turn the pages, each majestic and beautiful creature brought to life by the artist ability to bring us the African Jungle through her artistic ability.
