If I Had An Octopus by Gabby Dawnay, illustrated by Alex Barrow (Thames & Hudson) is a gorgeously illustrated book about how amazing it would be to have an octopus as a pet. The pictures and rhyming text are great fun, and kids will learn a lot too!
This Is Not A Unicorn by Barry Timms, illustrated by Ged Adamson (Nosy Crow) stars one of our favourite mythical creatures. The zany artwork and bouncy rhyming text make it clear that unicorns can do all kinds of incredible things!
Big Feelings by Alexandra Penfold, illustrated by Suzanne Kaufman (Bloomsbury) is a quirky, lovely tale about a group of children playing together – but it is also about the different emotions they experience. Reading this book is a great way to start a discussion about coping with feelings.
