The three books in this edition of picture book perfect are pure beauty. Overwhelmingly perfect for sharing and delving into, whether with just your own children or a class full. The messages are positive, yet honest and there is much to interpret, learn and empathise with.
Words to describe these books have been hard to find as I cannot seem to do them the justice they deserve. What I can do is promote them for their beauty, power and potential discussions in classes of all ages.

I am a primary school teacher, turned librarian. Now I have the title Reading Advocate for ASSET Education Trust, based in Suffolk.
I read constantly and have more books than bookshelves, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
I celebrate reading every day at work and at home with my two children, aged 11 and 9.
I sit on the National Executive Committee for the Federation of Children’s Book Groups and run an OU/UKLA Teachers as Readers group!
