A young girl falls asleep and travels in her dreams through the sky, down to the ocean's depths, and into a jungle. She is accompanied by a lion friend, who eases her fears, gives her confidence, and helps her explore the world around her. Along the way she meets whales, jellyfish, grizzly bears and wolves. Then it is time for the moon balloon to take the girl home to her bed, where she awakes, snuggled safely next to the lion, who returns to being a stuffed toy. Award-winning children's illustrator Britta Teckentrup's collage-like artwork creates a magical world of captivating colors, classic shapes, and softly detailed textures. The gently told story reassures children that they are never alone, even in their dreams. Exquisitely produced, this book is certain to become a pre-bedtime favorite for children and their parents.

Molly Mouse gets up to all sorts with her friends; she has fun, meets new people in the neighbourhood, but most importantly, she learns how to be kind through testing circumstances. This wonderfully vibrant book grasps children's imagination through its intricate imagery, while still imparting a dash of wisdom. With each spread, the book's varied range of characters think up beautiful solutions to (often challenging) everyday situations. The importance of being empathetic, compassionate and kind becomes more and more apparent as the story unravels. Not to mention, the fun of finding our cheeky Molly Mouse hidden within each spread. The Be Kind story helps Kiwi kids understand the importance of diversity and how to act in situations they may not be familiar with, around people who are different, as each character represents New Zealand's unique diversity.

Two of the world’s ancient traditions come alive for young readers in this fascinating book that proves the most interesting distance between two points is never a straight line. This brilliant book on mazes and labyrinths in history and the modern world encourages young readers to really think about why these puzzles are so appealing. Filled with amazing illustrations, it takes a thematic approach to these enigmatic works. Why are we sometimes afraid to get lost—and why does the idea excite us? How do mazes and labyrinths figure in history and mythology? What can nature tell us about humankind’s obsession with lines, spirals, and patterns? Along the way children will learn about the labyrinth designed by Daedalus for King Minos in the ancient city of Crete; the mystery of the Hemet Maze Stone in southern California; and the magnificent labyrinth at the Cathedral of Chartres. They are encouraged to trace their fingers along a labyrinth to experience its soothing effect, and to create their own mazes and labyrinths. Packed with fun facts and engaging ideas, this book will help children understand why mazes and labyrinths are so popular, while inspiring them to identify and create these fascinating puzzles in their own world.
