This little book on Our World is part of an important series which focuses on the words we use to talk about big topics with young children in a way that feels good. Words such as save, danger, wonder and fairness, are explored in this book in a way that is meaningful for little people in their everyday lives. It creates a special moment for grown-ups and young children to talk about recycling, peace and freedom and about being curious and to discover new words to help them to talk with confidence.
The engaging art style, fun characters who appear in familiar settings in all the books, and hardback picture book feel make this series accessible and perfect to share. Each one includes reassuring tips for grown-ups on how to enjoy these books, encourage conversation and build language confidence. This series is special not only because it focuses on feelings in a child-friendly way, but also because it’s from Oxford, it’s packed with educational goodness that helps children develop and grow.

‘I love these books (and so do my sons!). Not only are they beautifully illustrated but the content is pitched just right for having rich conversations with young children about values like kindness and bravery. These books will be a great resource for teachers and parents alike, helping them equip their children with the vocabulary they’ll need to understand and express their emotions better.’ – Adrian Bethune, Teachappy
