BABY BAND

written by Diane Jackson Hill

On a normal day, a baby creates mayhem in an apartment block.

Diane Jacksons words express her passion for music, and its ability to soothe the soul.

Giuseppe Poli brings to life the musical theme in the book, transforming an apartment block into a vibrant community.

HOOTIE THE CUTIE

written by Michelle Worthington

A magical tale about a brave little owl in an enchanted wood who proves that heroes come in all shapes and sizes

…Hootie the Cutie is sweet and heart warming. It hides several layers of truth beneath its gentle text. Giuseppe Poli also does something a little magical in his illustrations. I have never seen characters in shades of brown that look so soft and even the darkest of pages seem to vibrate with a warmth and light...

This seemingly simple tale of courage and fear is as much a story for parents (if not more) than it is for children.

OLIVER'S GRUMBLES

written by Yvonne Mes

Oliver is a happy little boy, until one day he wakes up with Grumbles in his head…. and Grumbles IN HIS BED!!

The Grumbles dance on Oliver’s chest, tug at his ears and cause all sorts of trouble for him, but when they run away with his snuggle blanket it’s the last straw!

Will Oliver work out a way to tame those terrible Grumbles?

5 out of 5 stars
— Goodreads community reviews
…a delightfully close up and personal look at dealing with emotions such as anger and frustration. And, a reminder to us all that, sometimes to change everything, you simply need to change your attitude...The many subtleties of both text and drawings make this a winner for me. Recommended for grumbles under 10 or anyone having one of ‘those’ days.

FEARLESS WITH DAD

written by Cori Brooke

A little boy’s lovable celebration of the endless possibilities and adventures he has with his dad.

...a lovely read for a father and son at any time of the year!
— Kids' Book Review
… It should be found in schools, libraries, and homes, for although it is a boy and his dad, the message is clear. All we need is encouragement and someone to believe that we can, so we can also believe it ourselves.
— Buzz Words review
....the perfect read-aloud title or a beautiful bedtime book, read by a dad of course.
