Here are some fun books that we think your little ones will enjoy from EK Books!
Sadie wants to be a painter just like her best friend, Tom. She loves playing with colour and finding patterns in unusual places.
This innovative flip-format picture book is a sequel to the best-selling and CBCA Notable Book for 2017, Smile Cry. Piglet, Bunny and Cat return in a charming, whimsical sensory adventure that encourages kids to explore the multitude of ways that they can engage with the world around them, particularly via the senses of sight and sound.
Edie’s Granny is a perfect Granny – she’s warm, loving and all things fun! But then she has a stroke, and suddenly, the Granny that Edie knows isn’t there anymore.
Sarah loves spending time with her Grandpa. But she knows there’s a part of his life that makes him sad – when he fought in the Vietnam War as a young man.
Loppy is very worried about not doing his homework well enough. He always focuses on what he hasn’t done rather than what he has, and then he becomes very frustrated. So, his friend Curly teaches him about how petunias grow – in lots of different, imperfect directions that we can’t control!
Setting out to visit a loved one, a child curiously asks a fellow commuter, “Who are you going to visit?” In answer to this simple question, the child learns about the love and loss in the life of a stranger: a father who lives apart from his small daughter, a husband who has lost his wife, a granddaughter who is forgotten by her grandfather, and a mother who fears for her son’s recovery.
Even outgoing and adventurous children sometimes have social anxieties and fear trying something new. SCAREDY BOOK addresses those fears and encourages children to leave their comfort zone, just like book does when book leaves the library shelf to explore with Emma.
