All the Ways to be Smart

All the Ways to be Smart

Author: Davina Bell Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/01/2019

The third project from this dynamic partnership that celebrates the myriad talents that each child brings to the world. Smart is not just ticks and crosses, smart is building boats from boxes. Painting patterns, wheeling wagons, being mermaids, riding dragons... From the award-winning creators of The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade and Under the Love Umbrella comes this joyful ode to all the unique and wonderful qualities that make children who they are.

If All the World Were...

If All the World Were...

Author: Joseph Coelho Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/01/2019

A moving, lyrical picture book about a young girl's love for her granddad and how she copes when he dies, written by poet and playwright Joseph Coelho. This beautifully illustrated, powerful and ultimately uplifting text is the ideal way to introduce children to the concept of death and dying, particularly children who have lost a grandparent.
