The perfect gift for any baby boy
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.
An uplifting, poetic picture book about the unique experiences and opportunities that children raised as boys will encounter in this ever-changing, conformist, highly pressurised world. A star-scattered night, a brand new baby, and all the potential in the world... dazzling possibilities 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. The companion book to Dreams for our Daughters, this is a truly stunning gift for children and parents at any key life moment, from birth to graduation.
A gentle, hopeful dream for a kinder world. - Kirkus
