Books we recommend


Owl Babies


Separation anxiety is common at this time of year with lots of children starting school or child care and experiencing new feelings of anxiety.
Owl Babies by Martin Waddell is a sensitive depiction of separation seen from both sides. The child, unsure of why their parent or carer is away from them, and the adult going about their tasks of caring for their young, knowing they will be back soon. Patrick Benson’s beautiful illustrations add so much depth to this story.


Today we have NO PLANS


Take some time to wind down over the holidays. This story, about hectic lives and the need to slow the pace, by Jane Godwin and Anna Walker, is a great reminder of the need to dream, imagine and relax.


The Singing Hat


Some books are written with quirkiness to help convey complex ideas. The Singing Hat by Tohby Riddle is a delightful story which addresses the way we treat those who fall outside our idea of ‘normal’. He uses descriptive language and sophisticated illustrations incorporating collage. The story is a sensitive but gently humorous exploration of social isolation, inclusion, problem solving and compassion.
