101 Small Ways to Change the World
Authors: Lonely Planet , Aubre Andrus
Bella absolutely loves this book. So much so she’s taken it to school today (world kindness day) to share with them the first section which is ways you can change at school. Talk to someone. Be kind. Help a teacher. 
They are small things but they really can help change the world. Not just for kids as I learnt a bit too! Set out in a fun way to engage kids it’s really is a wonderful book

Jack's Diamond and Other Stories
Author: Cat Weatherill
We were lucky enough to go to a storytelling session where Cat was preforming (she's brilliant) and bought this book. The stories are short stories and there are 9 in total. There are a few illustrations along the way which Bella liked. Bella liked naughty Miranda the best. The stories are very descriptive and full of expression. Perfect for any little reader

Unlock Your Imagination: 250 Boredom Busters - Fun Ideas for Games, Crafts, and Challenges
Author: DK
 I think this is our new go to book for activities. Since we received the book we have used it every day. My kids loved the board games that are included (checkers/chess/snakes and ladders) and have now learnt how to play them. 
The book has over 250 activities that are laid out in a colourful manner. If you fancy making puppets there’s a large section showing you how to make card/sock/spoon/finger/shadow puppets. There’s quizzes, slime making, obstacle courses and much more. I highly recommend this book for keeping the kids entertained as it really has entertained my two.

Disney Ideas Book: More than 100 Disney Crafts, Activities, and Games
Authors: DK , Elizabeth Dowsett
this is every Disney fans dream. It is packed full of ideas of things to make from all of the Disney movies. The pages are full of themes and easy instructions for what you need to do to make something. The best thing about this book as most of the items needed to make things we already have! Great for keeping the kids entertained after watching a movie or even a good idea for party ideas.

Angry Cookie
Author: Laura Dockrill Illustrator: Maria Karipidou
A lovely illustrated book which makes children think about the anger emotion. Poor cookie gets very angry and you discover along the way what it is making him so cross. I liked that it showed every day events which could cause children frustration and then it showed ways in overcoming them. The book “speaks” to the reader and makes you feel involved. Thankfully cookie turns out to be happy at the end due to a special someone - you!
