My Mixed Emotions: Learn to Love Your Feelings
Author: DK
I love this book. My children both said that this book is great, they love the bright colours , the illustrations and feel it is easy to read. 
I work with a lot of children who struggle to identify or talk about their emotions and this book will now be part of my resources. 

I love that the book is in a language that children can understand, that it explains emotions, why you get them and physical aspects of them emotions. I also like the fact that it includes ways to cope with emotions like Anger. 

It is great that it links to stuff they are doing at school too - Around bullying and mindfulness

Around the World in 50 Ways
Authors: Lonely Planet Kids , Dan Smith Illustrator: Frances Castle
PWe have loved reading this book, it feels like an adventure every time. The kids love the fact the can make choices whilst reading it and it is written so they can read alone or with me. You travel through the book and learn things about different places on the way.
The illustration through the book is brilliant and we would definitely recommend it.

All About Virtual Reality: Includes 5 Amazing VR Experiences
Author: DK
Both of my kids have read this and think that it is a great book.  It comes with all you need, you make the headset (The headset was a bit fiddly to put together but not too much) and then use with a phone. 
It is full of interesting facts and it is written in a way that keeps the children reading, the headset and app bring it alive! My kids love it and we would definitely get more books like this.
