WOW! Said the Owl
Author: Tim Hopgood
This is my daughter's absolute favourite book, and was also my son's favourite when he was younger. (He still loves to read it together!) This is a beautiful story of discovery and awe, and beautifully reflects the wonder that children find in the world around them. The illustrations are simple, yet gorgeous, and it gently teaches children about colour. I love reading this story to my children, and would thoroughly recommend it - it's a very special little book!

Owl Babies
Author: Martin Waddell Illustrator: Patrick Benson
This is a beautiful book, and is already a firm favourite for my 3 year old. He really enjoys the comforting and reassuring ending, and it has really helped him to explore his own anxieties at a time when I have returned to work after maternity leave. My little girl, who is 1, loves the illustrations, and the detailed and atmospheric illustrations are strikingly different to those of her other stories. Although she is only very young still, the story has opened up opportunities for me to talk about my returning to work and reassure her. We love it!
