All Kinds of Families by Sophy Henn

Celebrate diverse families with this adorable picture book, with every spread full of colour and life. There's lots to learn as it's packed with interesting facts about the different animal families you might find in the wild.

The Littlest Yak by Lu Fraser and Kate Hindley

Little Gertie the yak looks around and all she sees are yaks that are much bigger than her. She wishes she could be big too, so she tries with all her might to grow – until she learns that bigness can be found in the smallest of places. This is an adorable rhyming picture book with a lovely message about being brave and being yourself!

The Button Book by Sally Nicholls and Bethan Woollvin

What happens when you press a button? Some buttons are for beeping, some are for clapping, some for singing and some for tickling! In this brilliant book, every page has a colour theme to go along with its button and wee ones will love to find out what each one does. Chaos and fun ensue whilst sharing this picture book – but it has a lovely, calming ending for winding down, too.
