NEW PICTURE BOOK TITLES

WHOEVER YOU ARE by Mem Fox

Mem Fox is a highly regarded picture-book author. This book depicts many different cultures and diversity but our smiles, laughter, hurting and crying is the same. This is a great read-aloud book for younger children showing lots of understanding and empathy building knowledge on diversity. The colourful illustrations are a delight as is the classical font used throughout the book.

HOP UP! WRIGGLE OVER! By Elizabeth Honey

This is a great ‘action sound’ picture book with lots of sounds depicting a day in the life of an unorthodox family of Australian fauna. Koala and Kangaroo look after a mob of youngsters – going on a picnic, enjoying a daily bath and snuggling down with a bedtime story in the evening. This story will strike a chord with children everywhere as the young ones boing and bounce their way through the day.

THE MAN WITH MESSY HAIR by Pamela Allen

Pamela Allen has written another fabulous story for children. Parents will love reading this aloud again and again. Pamela writes wonderfully whimsical characters, outlandish plots with crazy rhymes. Children who loathe brushing their hair will find this book very amusing.

MISS HAZELTINE’S HOME FOR SHY AND FEARFUL CATS by Alicia Potter

Cats seem to be the flavour of the moment – on TV and the Internet, at least. This book is about a lady who looks after cats who are scared of everything. Miss Hazeltine teaches her cats to become braver. A fantastic story, especially for shy children, it is whimsical, adorable, unique with wonderful illustrations.

HOW THE SUN GOT TO COCO’S HOUSE by Bob Graham

This book follows the sun’s journey across the world from a whale’s eye to a little girl’s window in a tender story. The sun crosses frozen forests, cities and countryside, wakes furry creatures and balances on an airplane’s wing. This is a charming treatment of the natural wonder that comes with every new day.
