Children’s Books Out Now – Lovely picture story books to share with children

Brick Who Found Herself in Architecture 
By Joshua David Stein
Illustrated by Julia Rothman
Hardback £12.95

It’s not often a children’s picture book comes along that is so beautiful, clever and warmhearted. ‘Good things begin with small bricks’ Brick’s mother says to her. Brick travels the world trying to find her place in it.

The storytellers weave real buildings into the illustrations, providing fact to sit alongside imagination. This is one of those children’s books you will wish your own parents had read to you. It’s an inspiring coming of age story about building supplies. You can’t fail to love it.

Three little monkeys

Three Little Monkeys
By Quentin Blake and Emma Chichester Clark
HarperCollins Children’s Books

Two illustrative Greats come together to create this picture storybook. Quite what Hilda Snibbs expected to happen when leaving three monkeys without supervision is anyone’s guess. But young children will love the ensuing chaos created throughout this story.

This is a fun bedtime read together story.

what was i scared of

What Was I Scared Of?
By Dr. Seuss
HarperCollins Children’s Books

Who else other than Dr. Seuss could create a rhyming story about a pair of empty trousers that makes perfect sense?

What Was I Scared Of? teaches children not to rush to judgement about others who are different. This publication comes with a glow-in-the-dark cover to bring an added element of nighttime fun.

The Rescue of Bunny Wunny
By Emma Chichester Clark
Hardback £12.99
HarperCollins Children’s Books

Emma Chichester Clark is a complete genius and has obviously been scarred by the same simpering inept and ridiculous parents I’ve also had the misfortune to encounter. We all know a family like Imedla’s and if you don’t, you are That Family.

The Rescue of Bunny Wunny ends brilliantly. It’s such an unexpected end that spoilers would ruin the book. It’s not a traditional happy-ever-after ending, but it is quite an important lesson about behaviour, expectation and the way other people view twatty parenting. I expect many childminders and nursery school teachers would LOVE to read this.
