The Lost Words
Authors: Robert Macfarlane , Jackie Morris
Words can't describe how much I love this book! Everything about it is beautiful, the words, the illustrations, even the gold edging on the pages. My 5 year old calls it the golden book, and loves to read the introduction about spells conjuring back lost words. It is such an important book, to help children and adults be more aware of the world around them and of what would happen if the things these words describe, were to disappear. This is a wonderful book for children and adults alike, a keepsake book that would be perfect as a gift.

Tell Me a Dragon
Author: Jackie Morris
My 9 year old and 5 year old love dragons, and this has a wonderful selection of illustrations and words about dragons. They loved thinking about what their dragon would be like, and reading about all the different types of dragons. A beautiful book

Author: Hannah Whitty Illustrator: Paula Bowles
This is a lovely book, with a storyline that shows how we can all make a difference, even if the way how isn't obvious at first! There are many great illustrations win this book, and funny animal characters, which appealed to my 5 year old and really had him cheering on super kitty!

Everything You Need for a Treehouse
Author: Carter Higgins Illustrator: Emily Hughes
This is a beautiful book, with lovely illustrations and ideas that spark the imagination. I loved treehouses as a child and my children do too, especially my 5 year old who really enjoyed looking at all the different ideas for treehouses. It is written in a beautiful poetic way, which is still accessible to children.

Kitchen Disco
Author: Clare Foges Illustrator: Al Murphy
This is a great book with fab colourful illustrations and catchy rhymes. Even my 8 year old who often refuses to read picture books, enjoys reading this with his brother. Both my boys think the idea of fruit having a party whilst you're in bed is hilarious!
