Little Home Bird Written and illustrated by Jo Empson
Little Bird loves everything about his home. He’s surrounded by his favorite branch, his favorite food, his favorite view and his favorite music. Why on earth would he ever want to change, even when his brother tells him that they must? Discover how Little Bird ends up finding happiness in his new home away from home in this beautifully illustrated picture book. Perfect for all children who love their home, however many they may have. • The comforting tone will resonate with children who have more than one home. The book is particularly relevant to children whose parents are separating, as they come to terms with the changes and grow accustomed to having more than one place to call home. • Introduce children to the topic of bird migration and use the map in the endpapers as a starting point to discuss how and why migration takes place.
Empson’s dreamy illustrations capture the beauty and majesty of nature with warmth and elegance; wide-eyed Little Bird is a green-and-yellow puffball. Simply lovely. – Kirkus Reviews

Mr. Moon Wakes Up Written and illustrated by Jemima Sharpe
Mr. Moon always sleeps. He naps during hide-and-seek, passes out on puzzles and dozes during adventure stories. But what would happen if Mr. Moon ever woke up?

Written and illustrated by Alborozo It’s hard being an older sister when everybody is admiring your newly born younger (I would change to “brand new baby brother”) brother – particularly on your birthday. Especially when that younger (baby) brother is noisy, smelly and slimy – just like a tiny squid! How can our hero grab everyone’s attention, and grow to love her brother in the process? This quirky, exuberant picture book reminds us of the power of the imagination, and shows us how telling stories can help us order and deal with our experiences. • ‘And Then...’ celebrates creativity and the traditional art of storytelling. • The book can be used as a starting point for a number of creative activities. For example, children can create their own outrageous story, using ‘and then...’ to connect a series of nonsensical events. Why not have a competition to see who can tell the longest tale without stopping?
