Peppa Pig: Peppa the Mermaid
Author: Peppa Pig
If your child is a Peppa Pig fan, then this book will be a big hit. Peppa has a party, which is fancy dress....from the title you can imagine what she dresses up as!
My 4 year old loved the story. It's got all the usual characters in it and follows the familiar structure of the rest of the books.

You Choose!
Author: Pippa Goodhart Illustrator: Nick Sharratt
The children adore this book. It's really simple and so they can remember it to read along with from a young age. Even as my children have got older, the book has been great for looking at lots of differences and making up stories.

Ten Little Pirates
Author: Mike Brownlow Illustrator: Simon Rickerty
This is a charming picture book which has a familiar structure and a rhythm that is perfect for reading again and again. The pirates seem to meet dreadful ends throughout the book but it's got a lovely happy ending and always makes us smile.

We're All Wonders
Author: R. J. Palacio
We loved reading this simple and wonderful story, which delivers the themes of respect and friendship from the original 'Wonder' beautifully to young readers. The illustrations are bold; perfect to capture the imagination and get children talking.

The Bluest of Blues: Anna Atkins and the First Book of Photograph
Author: Fiona Robinson
This book really is breathtaking in it's beauty. The story of Anna Atkins isn't one that is very well known but her contribution to photography is great. The book tells, very simply, of her life and work, with blue images on each page that replicate the cyanotope process in her work. It's a joy to read and really brings to life an important figure in the history of art.
