The perfect gift for any baby boy

October 2020 Debut of the Month

Full of a sense of tenderness but also possibilities, Songs for our Sons contains every wish you could have for a young boy growing up today, from ‘Never change, fib or follow, just to try to fit in./Be proud, free and happy in your own, unique skill’, to ‘Keep a still place inside, that you can call home/ and know how to find it, wherever your roam.’ The text is touching, heartfelt and always uplifting, while Ashling Lindsay’s illustrations depict children playing in a range of settings, from green fields to desert cities and magic trees, bold colours and shifting perspectives making every turn of the page an adventure. Giving this and receiving it, both will be a real joy.

Songs for our Sons Synopsis

A star-scattered night, a brand new baby boy, and all the potential in the world... This is a poetic introduction to what it means to be a boy in the challenging times we live in, and all of the dazzling possibilities that await him.

A beautiful and poignant message is at the heart of this book: whatever is expected of you, you can be whoever you want to be. With gold foil detail on the cover, this is a truly stunning gift for sons and parents at any key life moment, from birth to graduation.
