Isle Of You
A deep breath and a little imagination are key in this gentle, beautifully illustrated story that will inspire little ones to lift their own spirits — and remember that they are loved.
Some days are harder to get through than others, but when you’re sad, or lonely, or angry, it helps to remember these words: the Isle of You. Take a moment to shake off your worries, then set sail to a land where your dreams can come true. Soar on the back of an eagle, hunt for treasure, watch dancing polar bears on roller skates — anything you can imagine is yours. Hopeful and dreamlike, Jaime Kim’s paintings illuminate a way for young readers to visualize a brighter, happier mood in this compassionate story by David LaRochelle.
- A terrific introduction to "guided visualization" for letting go of negative emotions and remembering you are loved.
- The ending—with its reminder that "Isle of You"—makes this perfect for a parent to share with a child, especially during times of transition.
- Kids today are more anxious than ever, and this provides a tool to help parents help them to cope.
Leon and Bob
Leon is new in town and doesn't know anyone. That's when he makes friends with Bob. No one else can see Bob, but Leon knows he's there. One day a boy exactly Leon's age moves in next door. Leon would like to meet him, as long as Bob comes along. But suddenly Bob is gone. How alone Leon feels! Is he brave enough to make friends without Bob beside him?
With a simple, witty story and free-spirited illustrations, Peter H. Reynolds entices even the stubbornly uncreative among us to make a mark — and follow where it takes us.
Her teacher smiled. "Just make a mark and see where it takes you."
Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can’t draw - she’s no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says.
That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery. That special moment is the core of Peter H. Reynolds’s delicate fable about the creative spirit in all of us.
A Brave Bear
What is the bravest thing in the world? A brave bear, of course! And who is the best at helping a little bear be brave? His dad, of course!
A story inspired by dads and sons, about the little moments that pass between them and about enjoying the very simple pleasures of life - splashing in a cool river on a hot day.
For young children just beginning to dare to do new things and their supportive and loving parents, this warm, gentle story just might be the best read in the world.
How Do You Feel?
A first book about feelings, for very young children.
How do you feel? Sometimes you feel happy, sometimes sad. Sometimes you even feel surprised. Supreme artist and Children's Laureate Anthony Browne brings all his understanding and skill to bear in this exploration of emotion for very young children. This book will reassure and help them understand how they feel, using simple words and pictures. Every parent can feel "confident" that this is the perfect book.
A tender tale to remind the youngest of children that Mummy always comes back.
“I want my mummy!” Three baby owls awake one night to find their mother gone, and they can’t help but wonder where she is. What is she doing? When will she be back? What scary things move all around them? Stunning illustrations from striking perspectives capture the anxious little owls as they worry. Not surprisingly, joyous flapping and dancing and bouncing greet the mother’s return, lending a celebratory tone to the ending of this comforting tale. Never has the plight of young ones who miss their mother been so simply told or so beautifully rendered.
Happy In Our Skin
Is there anything more splendid than a baby’s skin? For families of all stripes comes a sweet celebration of what makes us unique—and what holds us together.
Look at you! You look so cute in your brand-new birthday suit. Just savour these bouquets of babies—cocoa-brown, cinnamon, peaches and cream. As they grow, their clever skin does too, enjoying hugs and tickles, protecting them inside and out, and making them one of a kind. Fran Manushkin’s rollicking text and Lauren Tobia’s delicious illustrations paint a breezy and irresistible picture of the human family—and how wonderful it is to be just who you are.
