Discover and learn about endangered species...

Disappearing Acts is a beautifully illustrated search-and-find book. Each page features a densely detailed lanscape; rainforest, mountains, coral reef, freshwater, etc. Within these landscapes are hiding threatened species ranging from the numbat to the snow leopard, and children are invited to search the picture to find each one. Alongside each illustration run descriptions of the animals, their numbers, their habitats and why they are endangered. At the back of the book, a glossary of animals breaks down the details of each species and why it is endangered. A delightful way to learn about our beautiful planet and the rich bio-diversity that inhabits it.

Interactive learning in action...

A fresh new take on the alphabet book format, DIY ABC invites young readers to engage with each letter by drawing, cutting and pasting or colouring in a related image. For example: A is for ant... draw the ants in the anthill. F is for Family.... glue a photo of your family in the picture frame. S is for stars.... stick the star stickers in the night sky. There is a wit and a humour to the activities that will delight parents as well as children. Printed on heavy cardstock, with numerous die cuts, stickers and flaps, this is interactive learning in action. #pedagoofriday #kinderchat #eyfs #eytalking #mums #ece #childminders #children #nanniesofinstagram #nannies #nurseryschool #nursery #kidlit #childrensbooks #bookstagram #kidstagram #kidsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #teachers #momsofinstagram #dadsoninstagram #dads #primaryschool #gifts #childhoodliteracy #kindergarten #e17

With a simple, easy-to-follow structure and bold, quirky imagery by award-winning illustrator Madalena Matoso, this is an imaginative storytelling experience for children of all ages.

A tale about respecting and enjoying our differences...

Lucy knows how to do everything. She knows how to eat with a spoon and fork, play the xylophone, paint elephants – and lots more besides! All her friends ask her for help if they need to know the right way to do something. When Toshi arrives, Lucy thinks he can’t do anything properly at all. He eats differently, plays strange music, and he definitely can’t paint elephants. She can barely hide her frustration. And when she finally tries to teach Toshi the right way to do things, she learns a very important lesson herself. A simple, funny tale about understanding, respecting and enjoying our differences. #pedagoofriday #kinderchat #eyfs #eytalking #mums #ece #childminders #children #nanniesofinstagram #nannies #nurseryschool #nursery #kidlit #childrensbooks #bookstagram #kidstagram #kidsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #teachers #momsofinstagram #dadsoninstagram #dads #primaryschool #gifts #childhoodliteracy #kindergarten #e17

An exploration of home, friendship and family...

The Paddling family love nothing more than living on an island beneath a big black cloud, surrounded by water.

Richly illustrated, this story explores the themes of home, friendship and family. Written by Sarah L. Smith published by Child's Play. #kindergarten #pedagoofriday #kinderchat #eyfs #eytalking #mums #ece #childminders #children #nanniesofinstagram #nannies #nurseryschool #nursery #kidlit #childrensbooks #bookstagram #kidstagram #kidsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #teachers #momsofinstagram #dadsoninstagram #dads #primaryschool #gifts #childhoodliteracy #e17

A delight for young readers...

Published by Abrams Appleseed - Cityblock explores city life in an exciting and unique way, from up in a high-rise building to down in the subway. Divided into three sections—things that go, things to see, and things to eat—it features 24 different aspects of city living. As with the other acclaimed books in the series, die-cut icons hint at the larger context on the next spread. Each section opens with a full city scene but gradually focuses in on the small, unique neighborhoods that make the city large and grand. This clever book will attract young readers living in a metropolis as well as those in the countryside with urban life that pops off each page.
