Carmen Saldana – Howard the Average Gecko

Howard thinks he’s the most exceptional creature in the rainforest – that’s because no other creature is as exceptionally camouflaged as him! But when he learns that the rainforest is full of other camouflaged creatures, he begins to wonder: ‘Who will like me if I’m just . . . an average gecko?’

Illustrated by Carmen Saldana, ‘Howard the Average Gecko’ is a fun new picture book published by Oxford University Press.

Daniel Egneus – Tisha and the Blossom

We all have busy lives and little Tisha and her family are no exception. With life always moving at such a pace, Tisha must ‘hurry up’ to get ready for school on time, ‘hurry up’ to finish her drawings before break time, and ‘hurry up’ to tidy up before she goes home. But hurrying up all the time can be exhausting. Thankfully, Tisha’s Mummy knows a special game to help them all slow down when everything becomes too much . . .

‘Tisha and the Blossom’ is a beautiful story sensitively illustrated by Daniel Egneus about allowing more mindfulness and stillness into children’s lives. Available this April from OUP.
