Books for Lockdown

 

While we can't Hug by Eoin McLaughlin and Polly Dunbar

 

The bestselling and heart-warming picture book that shows us ways to be affectionate while social distancing, from the team behind The Hug.

Hedgehog and Tortoise were the best of friends.
They wanted to give each other a great, big hug.
But they weren't allowed to touch.

"Don't worry," said Owl. "There are lots of ways to show someone you love them."

So the two friends wave to each other, blow kisses, sing songs, dance around and write letters. And even though they can't hug and they can't touch, they both know that they are loved.

A gorgeous, uplifting, inspiring picture book that makes social distancing fun! I just love the illustrations in this book.

 

The World Made a Rainbow by Michelle Robinson

 

Let's paint a big rainbow to put on display.
When people pass by it and see it, they'll say .
'All rainstorms must end, and this rainstorm will too.'
And they'll feel a bit happier, all thanks to you.

Light can't shine without dark. Rainbows can't colour the sky without rain. And the world is always full of hope and possibility, even when we feel lost and alone.

Inspired by the rainbows that children across the world have been creating and displaying in their windows, The World Made a Rainbow is a beautiful story with a hopeful message of staying connected to the people we love, and a proportion of proceeds will be donated to Save the Children UK.

Bestselling author Michelle Robinson was desperate to find a way to help small children navigate their way through the complex emotions caused by the 2020 lockdown. She has written a story that matters now, but will last for ever. With charming illustrations from new talent Emily Hamilton, The World Made a Rainbow will reassure, uplift and is the perfect reminder of fun, hope and togetherness.

The Save the Children Fund is a charity registered in England and Wales (213890) and Scotland

 

Superheroes don't get scared...or do they? by Kate Thompson

 

'I absolutely love this fun, brilliantly illustrated book' - Elizabeth Dale, children's book author

'An important story for young readers, told in lively, dynamic rhyme, which matches the colourful and fun illustrations brilliantly' - Clare Helen Welsh, children's book author

An action-packed, fun-filled story to reassure even the littlest of Superheroes' - B B Taylor, author of The Vigilante Tooth Fairy

 

Superheroes Don't Get Scared... Or Do They? is an awesome rhyming tale about normalising fear and finding inner powers by realising there's a hero inside of us all.

Scared Maisie Brown dreams of being a fearless superhero because they never get frightened, right? But when Dad explains that even the strongest, boldest and bravest hero can sometimes feel afraid, and that's perfectly fine, Maisie realises there's superhero in all of us.

With fun characters, rhyming text and a wonderfully relatable take-away message about normalising feelings, this heart-warming book is an amazing addition to any little hero's bookshelf.
