My Big Barefoot Book of Wonderful Words
Seeing new things and learning new words opens so many doors for children! With this unique book, youngsters follow a bustling family through their busy day. The story unfolds through simple header sentences and bright, detailed illustrations.
Each scene is teeming with people, places and things. But what makes this book really different is that each of the narrative, "real world" scenes is followed and further developed by an abstract, interactive one. After the family gets dressed, for example, the readers are invited to choose their own outfits from a global closet of clothing. This alternating pattern enables the theme of each "real world" scene to be amplified, and gives the book a simple, repetitive rhythm.
• Literacy: Includes illustrations for over 700 items on themes like animals, home, food, jobs and familiar places, to build vocabulary, introduce eco-friendly lifestyle choices and promote literacy
• Interactivity: Invites young readers to engage with the text and pictures in many different ways
• Inclusivity: Includes images of people of many different sizes, races, cultures, lifestyles and abilities. Illustrations were developed with the help of an inclusivity specialist
• Endless Enjoyability: Clever, detailed scenes offer new ideas for families to explore and share every time they open the book

Stories for Boys Who Dare to Be Different
In fact, a whole lot of them out there don't identify with the idea of being a strong, independent, competitive saviour who never cries. As a boy, there is an assumption that you will conform to this stereotypical idea of masculinity, but what if you're the introvert kind, what if you prefer to pick up a book rather than a sword, what if you're very sensitive, what if you like the idea of wearing a dress?
As statistics keep showing that there is an ongoing crisis with regards to young men and mental health, with unhelpful gender stereotypes contributing to this malaise, Stories for Boys Who Dare To Be Differentoffers a welcome alternative narrative. It is an extraordinary compilation of 100 stories of famous and not-so-famous men from the past to the present day, every single one of them a rule-breaker and innovator in his own way, and all going on to achieve amazing things. Entries include Frank Ocean, Salvador Dali, Rimbaud, Beethoven, Barack Obama, Ai Weiwei and Jesse Owens - different sorts of heroes from all walks of life and from all over the world.
A beautiful and transporting book packed with stories of adventure and wonderment, it will appeal to those who need the courage to reject peer pressure and go against the grain. It will educate and entertain, while also encourage and inspire.
