The Worry Box
Author: Suzanne Chiew Illustrator: Sean Julian
I read this book to my class to introduce our Worry Box. It was a lovely way of introducing worries and how we can manage our feelings positively. The characters and beautiful illustrations help to tell the story. Would recommend for young children :)

Alfie and Bet's ABC: A pop-up alphabet book
Author: Patricia Hegarty Illustrator: Maddie Frost
This book is colourful and interactive so it really engages little children. The rhyming and pop up letters make it enjoyable for children of different ages. My class have been learning letter names and this book along with the alphabet strip along the bottom will really help them. It’s a book they have wanted to borrow from the library lots!

What are Germs?
Author: Katie Daynes Illustrator: Marta Alvarez Miguens
Another fantastic Usborne book with easy to navigate pages, flaps to lift and interesting facts. This is the perfect book for young children who are learning the importance of good hygiene habits. I will be putting this book in my classroom and sharing it with the children to encourage more hand washing and self care.

Author: Jeanne Willis Illustrator: Briony May Smith
A really wonderful story about how everyone is special and unique. The little girl in the story learns how, like the stars in the sky, everyone sparkles in their own way. The illustrations are beautiful and the story simple for little ones to follow too. A new favourite :)

There's A Snake In My School!
Illustrator: Tony Ross
It is the best school day ever - everyone can bring their pet to school for the day! But what will happen when Miranda brings in her pet python Penelope? This is another great book by David Williams and Tony Ross! The children in my class thought it was hilarious and they were keen to create their own alternative versions like 'There's a crocodile in my school' and 'There's a bearded dragon in my school'!
