The Copper Tree
January 9, 2012
New Book! Published 3rd April 2012 (release date brought forward due to advance orders).
When Olivia’s teacher, Miss Evans, dies, the children at her school are encouraged to think of everything that reminds them of her.
Written with touching sensitivity and sprinkled with light hearted moments, ‘The Copper Tree’ is about love and legacy and will help children understand that while sadness is an inevitable part of grief, death is not necessarily the end… for what is left behind can be everlasting.
A great book for young children facing bereavement.
Still looking for a children’s book for Christmas?

Then let us suggest Mixed Up Fairy Tales.
We found this quote on the Spectator website:
It would be great fun for a child who has just learned to read. Each page is split into three parts which can be turned individually like the traditional books in which you could mix and match head, body and legs. In this case the text is on one side and the illustration opposite, so surreal and ever varying stories can be created, such as ‘Sleeping Beauty cried “Open Sesame” and was pounced on by a wolf disguised as a helping of porridge.’
