Arts & Culture Editor Janie recommends these three cracking good reads for your little lambs this Easter.
When I was a little girl I had a special book about a Spring lamb who had no friends! I was given it instead of an Easter Egg and, I can never thank my Grandma enough for her wise choice. You see, I still have that book and will never ever forget the beautiful story that magnificent book held.
As Easter fast approaches I thought it would be lovely to find three books for @wimbledonkids to enjoy over the holidays. I hope they bring your little ones as much joy as my Spring lamb story did to me.
I Love You To The Moon And Back by Little Tiger Press and Tim Warnes
When the sun comes up, Big Bear and Little Bear think of new ways to share their love. Big Bear loves Little Bear more and more as each day passes, right up to each new moon – and back.
The most joyful and beautifully illustrated book for little ones about the special love between parent and child. I can see this being a firm family favourite that will be treasured forever.
It is a hardback book so is perfect for your tiny bear to sit and read alone.
Dinosaur Valley by NS Ether
This wonderful book of adventure and fun is hot off the press and I can’t imagine there being a child anywhere who doesn’t love a good dinosaur tale!
It was an ordinary day in Dinosaur Valley when a chance encounter turned it into the most extraordinary one involving a desperate search. A group of brave and helpful young dinosaurs strive to find a lost baby dinosaur’s mother. The only problem is that she is possibly one of the fiercest dinosaurs in all the land. Can they find her, and will they be able to reunite mother and baby in time?
The Enchanted Wood – The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton
Part one of the timeless classic series of Enchanted Wood stories that never age and are loved by children all over the world.
When Joe, Beth and Frannie move to a new home, an Enchanted Wood is on their doorstep. How amazingly lucky are they? But things just get better when they discover the Faraway Tree and their magical adventures begin! Join them and their friends Moonface, Saucepan Man and Silky the fairy, as they discover which new land is at the top of the Faraway Tree. Will it be the Land of Birthdays, the Land of Toys, or even the Land of Ice and Snow with its magic snowman?
Even now when I walk past a large tree I hear the excitement and fun of the Faraway Tree in my head! I wanted to live in one and, I guess that explains why I’d still love a treehouse in my garden to go and read in!
I hope your little ones will enjoy my selection of books. Maybe a little bit of their magic will rub off on them and inspire years of fun and imaginative reading and play.
