There are plenty of books for little ones to get excited about this March, here are 8 of our favourites!
If you’ve got a young animal lover then you’re in luck this month! There’s Archie, a very energetic and enthusiastic sloth who doesn’t seem to fit in with his slow-moving, relaxed friends. Or Chip, a cheeky pigeon whose obsession with all kinds of chips gets him in trouble with the local chip van. And don’t forget Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise although he’s easy to miss, since he camouflages himself with finesse.
If you’re in the throes of potty training, Skip to the Loo My Darling might just help! With illustrations from Anita Jeram (from Guess How Much I Love You) and a rhyming story from Sally Lloyd- Jones, it’ll have your tyke skipping to the potty in no time (we hope).
Together Always and Ida, Always are both beautiful books dealing with friendship and loss. Together Always is about two friends who have grown apart, and helps children learn about staying connected and moving on. In Ida, Always polar bear Gus learns his best friend Ida is very sick, and although he will have to live without her, her memory will be all around him (it was inspired be a a real life polar bear friendship).
Last but not least, there’s A Tale of Two Beasts – a little girl finds a beast in the woods and takes it home as her new pet and she is unhappy when it escapes, but what would it be like from the beast’s perspective? This picture book shows you both. And Something Wonderful, from the writer and illustrator of Hello From Nowhere, is a simple story about discovery and dreams.
