Ron the Rhino reinvents himself in this delightful story, bringing joy to those around him too as he proves that being yourself, making lots of friends and having fun are the only life rules that matter. As the story opens, Ron is struggling with the rhino lifestyle and its rules, which are all about being alone, being grumpy and charging at anything that comes near you. Looking like a rhino understandably means making friends is very hard, but then Ron has a flash of inspiration and finds a way to show his true colours. Reborn as the fabulously flamboyant Rhinocorn, he’s happy for the first time ever. A funny and satisfying story that neatly delivers a message about tolerance, understanding and the importance of being happy in your own skin.Children who love Ron will of course love Elmer too, and vice versa.
The perfect picture book to teach children about the importance of washing their hands. There's a very special guest at the school for little animals, and her name is Doris - Doris the Doctorpus. She's here to help the animals learn to wash their hands because of something very very small called GERMS! Doris explains that washing your hands can send germs packing and she's got her very own hand-washing song too. A funny and reassuring story that's perfect for calming worried little ones while reinforcing the importance of keeping hands super-clean. A donation of 50p per copy sold will be donated in aid of the NHS Charities Together COVID-19 Urgent Appeal.
