Say Hi to Hedgehogs!
Author: Jane McGuinness
This gorgeously illustrated read is a story book combined with factual information on all things hedgehogs. It’s a book that caters well for both my girlies and one that has been well received. It’s also a book that gently informs young readers of the number of hedgehogs dwindling and what we can practically do to help our little spiky friends. 
Highly recommend.

Tales from Acorn Wood: Friends
Author: Julia Donaldson Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
My two daughters have enjoyed this series of books since they were younger. My eldest knows many of the books by heart and my youngest absolutely adores the different characters. 
Friends is a collection of illustrations from the previous books, explaining to young readers about the friendships the different characters have. There isn’t a story as such.
Admittedly I was expecting a story of some sort about the different animal
characters however, my youngest daughter really liked the book as all the characters are familiar to her. 
The book doesn’t have lift the flaps like others in the series but it is full the brim within a Scheffler’s fantastic illustrations.

My Little Gifts: A Book of Sharing
Author: Jo Witek Illustrator: Christine Roussey
Celebrations are made that more special when you have all your loved ones nearby and gifts, well that can make it special too. I talk not only of things purchased but acts of kindness too. 
Indeed there are lots of way to give and share and this cheery read explains just that. Complete with realistic examples and fun flaps to explore this would be a great book to share in a learning setting as it is for a home library too.

It Starts With A Seed
Author: Laura Knowles
This book is such a treat.  It is also a fantastic book to explore all four seasons.
The illustrations are just so beautiful and set against a white background the natural palette of colours are so striking. Readers witness the journey of a tree growing, starting with a seed and flourishing into its wonderful tall self. The flowing rhyming stanzas are great to read aloud and a fantastic introduction to poetry. A superb read that won’t disappoint.

Peek and Seek
Author: DK Illustrator: Charlotte Milner
Large fold out pages brimming with facts, seek challenges and fantastic illustrations make this board book heaps of fun. 
Each double page is dedicated to a different habitat giving readers an opportunity to meet a range of animals in the home that best suits them. This is a great book to introduce new vocabulary, practise observational skills and with challenges along the way young readers will be happily engaged. 
My girls enjoy this book and I appreciate the refreshing non-fiction books that are available now.
