We all have lots of feelings, it's OK to let them show. They all live in our heart as our very own rainbow. What does your body do when you're sad or angry? How do you show someone you are proud? For children, experiencing new emotions and understanding them are two vastly different things, but poet Jessica Urlichs and illustrator Rebekah Ballagh have created an accessible and wondrous rhyming picture book about the rainbow of feelings that live in our heart that helps little ones to express their feelings. Also a qualified counsellor, Rebekah has provided notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book to help caregivers start conversations around understanding, identifying and navigating emotions.

This story about a reluctant seedling packs a powerful message about the benefits of being different. It’s early spring and below the earth’s surface seeds are just starting to sprout. One by one they stretch through the dirt and towards the sun, extending their shoots and leaves and growing tall. All except for one seedling, who isn’t quite ready. Each page of this gentle but powerfully evocative book demonstrates how some of us are different. As most of the seeds transform into strong flowers, they block out the sun from the one left behind. But the little seedling persists, twisting and turning until, with the help of bird and insect friends, it finds its own place to grow and blossom. In the end, this little seed turns into a flower that’s just as beautiful and healthy as all the others. Hailed by Publishers Weekly as “delicate, complex, extravagant, beautiful and strong,” Teckentrup’s inviting and softly colored illustrations provide the perfect backdrop for this moving tale about being unique while subtly teaching kids about the life cycle of plants. This book was produced climate neutral.

In this charming book, children will delight in the sounds animals make as they come together to help a young bird find a friend. It's spring and everywhere birds are calling out to each other. But one bird has forgotten which sound to make. He tries "Woof," and meets a dog, who encourages him to try "Oink," with the expected result. Moo, Hee-Haw, Baa, Meow--each successive call adds another animal friend to the page. Will the young bird find another bird friend? As young readers are introduced to each type of animal and their sounds, Hendrik Jonas's clever illustrations grow increasingly crowded. The result is a beautiful celebration of friendship that will delight young children everywhere.
