Book of the Month: Big Words for Little People – Celebrate and Our World

Big Words for Little People: Celebrate and Our World

Written by Helen Mortimer and illustrated by Cristina Trapanese

Age 3+

The Big Words for Little People series focuses on the words we use to talk about big topics in a way that feels good for little people. Celebrate and Our World are the latest books in the series, creating special moments for grown-ups and young children to talk about things that matter, big and small.

Created by the language experts at Oxford University Press, and informed by the Oxford Corpus of Children’s Language, each book focuses on a word or concept to introduce young children to the vocabulary they need to make sense of their feelings.

These engaging and friendly picture books will build your child’s confidence through sharing and talking, with reassuring tips to help you enjoy the books together and to encourage conversation.
