With the sun shining, it finally feels like Spring is almost here. With Pancake day, World Book Day, International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day all happening in March, it promises to be a busy month, but no matter how busy, there’s always time for a good book.
When Julian sees some beautiful women dressed up on the subway, he starts to daydream. Julian Is A Mermaid has a powerful message, beautiful illustrations full of sass and energy and a sparse text that brilliantly conveys all the character’s emotions with subtly and humour. Both my four year old son and I are huge fans of this book. Now in paperback, Julian Is A Mermaid has also been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize.
Ben is playing with his cat when suddenly – she disappears. Bella offers to help, but it’s not long before Ben, Bella and the cat have all vanished into the book and it’s up to the reader to save the day! My son loved the idea that a book had stolen some of the characters and it was up to him to rescue them.
Captain Shipshape thinks it’s time for Sidney Green to stop playing and become a proper pirate, but there are just too many other things for Sidney to do. You’re Not A Proper Pirate, Sidney Green! is a fun book all about the power of imaginative play.
Rosa can’t wait to start at Unicorn Academy and go on her first adventure with her unicorn Crystal. But when a magical map stops working, they find themselves in trouble and have to quickly learn how to work together as a team.
