For the best children’s books, look for the bear! Picture Book Party book montage________________________

As parents we know there is no joy more complete than watching the rapt faces of your children when you read a picture book together. Picture books have lots of other benefits as well such as stimulating language because children have a natural responsiveness to pictures. They are also perfect for settling children at bedtime.

________________________

‘As publishers Walker has made a hugely creative contribution to helping children to learn how to look, not only as an adjunct to learning to read but as a lifelong pleasure in itself, a springboard into all kinds of future delights.' – Shirley Hughes ________________________

This special section is full of all our favourite Walker picture books, both new this year and published previously. No childhood should be without many of these beautifully crafted titles and they will stay with your children (and hopefully their children’s children) for the rest of their lives!
