All About Clive
Jessica Spanyol
Meet Clive – and his imagination! Clive enjoys doing all sorts 
of activities; trying on accessories from his collection of hats 
and bags, playing with his dolls, and making art. These four 
books demonstrate the importance of role-play during a child’s 
development. A gentle, affectionate series, celebrating diversity 
and challenging gender stereotypes.

Helping Hands    
Illustrated by Georgie Birkett and Jess Stockham
Children love to imitate adult behaviour. Helping with real tasks is a natural progression from pretend play, and is a crucial stage 
in a child’s development. Achieving a shared goal encourages a sense of responsibility and develops many skills useful in later life. 
Encourage your child to help out as they share in the fun of more grown-up activities. Simple conversational text and lively illustrations 
are carefully designed to initiate dialogue between reader and child.

New Baby 
Illustrated by Rachel Fuller
A new addition to the family is exciting, but the experience can also be worrying and confusing for siblings. Coping with the new  
situations and emotions that arise can be very challenging. This series of four board books deals with the anticipation of waiting  
for the new baby, the excitement of the arrival itself, and the beginnings of the special relationship between siblings.  
The simple conversational text and lively illustrations are carefully designed to encourage dialogue between reader and child  
and help to prepare them for the downfalls and delights of having a younger brother or sister.

My Secret Scrapbook Diary     
Kees Moerbeek
An entertaining diary format based on much-loved fairy tales. Visually stimulating pages, littered with pop-ups, photographs,

Errol’s Garden
Gillian Hibbs
Errol loves gardening, but there isn’t enough room in his flat to grow everything that he would like. When he discovers a secret but 
neglected space at the top of the apartment block, he has a wonderful idea, but to carry it out he’ll need some help. Surely the other 
residents will be too busy to help him realize his dream? Or just not interested enough? In this heart-warming tale of common purpose 
within a diverse community, Gillian Hibbs illustrates the power of the natural world to inspire and reward humanity within a seemingly 
inauspicious environment.

Quiet
Kate Alizadeh
Ssh! Listen. What’s that noise? What can we hear when we’re really, really quiet? A toddler enjoys the range of sounds they hear 
as their busy day comes to an end, from the bustle and chat of dinner time, to the quiet hush of their father’s voice at bedtime. 
The text and sensory clues to be found in this enchanting, inclusive picture book allow us to experience our home through its many 
noises. Auditory landmarks help all children to become familiar with daily routines, and can be particularly important to those who 
are blind or partially sighted.

My Tail’s Not Tired
Jana Novotny Hunter, illustrated by Paula Bowles
How can any little monster possibly go to bed when their tail 
isn’t even tired? And when their knees still have plenty of bounce 
in them? And when their arms still want to fly like a jet plane? 
Bedtime is surely a long way off! Luckily, Big Monster has a strategy 
to humour Little Monster, with the inevitable result! A humorous 
and charming bedtime story that adults and children will love 
to read – and play out – again and again.

Jemima Sharpe
Mr Moon isn’t the most exciting playmate. He passes out on puzzles, naps during hide-and-seek and sleeps through tea parties! 
In fact, the only time he’s wide awake is in the middle of the night, when he inhabits a surreal garden filled with mythical creatures. 
Using traditional screen-printing techniques, Jemima Sharpe creates a magical realm reminiscent of the most classic children’s tales.

Alborozo
On her birthday, a little girl is feeling left out as her family fawns over a new arrival. Her squirming, slimy new brother is more like a squid

A child’s early years are more important 
than any other. This is when children 
learn most about the world around them, 
and the language skills they need to 
survive and grow. For more than 40 years, 
Child’s Play
 
has put enormous thought 
and care into creating exactly the right 
sort of material for this all-important time.
Child’s Play has a history of creating innovative, 
award-winning books for children that promote 
learning through play. Vibrant illustrations 
positively portray children of all cultures, 
nationalities, gender and abilities, helping 
children to develop an understanding of our 
diverse society. Non-stereotypical traditions  
and values are fostered as a matter of course. 
Respected and loved by parents, educationalists, 
and most importantly, children, the Child’s Play 
programme offers learning, fun and happiness  
to children from the very earliest age. It provides 
a wide range of formats and experiences that 
will enrich and empower every child’s life.
