Topsy and Tim: Meet the Police
Author: Jean Adamson Illustrator: Belinda Worsley
We are Topsy and Tim fans and really enjoyed the book. The main plot is about the police visiting the school. They find out about the roles of police officers and even do some role play about stranger danger - which in turn gives you an opportunity to discuss this with your own child. There is also a part about a lost purse which they take to the police station - again teaching children about morals and the correct thing to do.

Topsy and Tim: Go on an Aeroplane
Author: Jean Adamson Illustrator: Belinda Worsley
We are a Topsy and Tim mad family! The books are great for helping to explain children about real life experiences. This one tells you about the family going on holiday, the plane ride, how sucking a sweet can help with ear pressure on the plane, the moving platforms you travel on. Great for preparing children for a flight or just another great Topsy and Tim story! The illustrations are lovely and show a nice amount of detail too.

Guess How Much I Love You
Author: Sam McBratney Illustrator: Anita Jeram
This is a lovely heart warning tale and the relationship between the two main characters. It’s a lovely story reassuring little nut brown  hare that he is loved and will always be loved - so touching I’ve even heard it as a reading at a wedding!

Animal Ark, New 1: Kitten Rescue: Book 1
Author: Lucy Daniels
Emily love cats and kittens so was instantly attracted to the cute kitten on the front of the book. She’s just starting to read longer books - this was a nice length with good sized text. She enjoyed the story and the helpful tips on caring for animals! I think she will enjoy other books from the series.
