Here are some of Minipreneur’s favourite board books this month.
Hidden Animals by Mia Cassany & Albert Corberó
Minipreneur loves animals and can’t wait for his next visit to London Zoo. So it’s no surprise that he loves this unique, beautifully illustrated board book that teaches kids brilliant animal facts. With something new to spot on every page, the bright colours, hidden animals and graphic style helps to develop attention skills with counting activities at every turn of the page.

Jonny Lambert’s Bear and Bird: Learn to Share by Jonny Lambert
Minipreneur is a big fan of the stunning illustrations by renowned artist Jonny Lambert. This is the latest beautiful book by the author & illustrator all about friendship and the importance of sharing with others – vital life skills that I’ve already started teaching Minipreneur. All grown-ups should be teaching these skills to their children around the age of three.

Once Upon A Time…
The Once Upon A Time series introduces your little one to lesser-known fables and fairy tales from around the world. Maja Andersen’s colourful illustrations bring the magic and wonder of the stories to life and the board books are the perfect length for bedtime reading. The series taps into the growing movement for greater diversity in children’s literature and a renewed commitment to tell stories from varied world cultures.
The latest books in the series are Once Upon A Time… there was a Thirsty Frog, a tale about sharing based on an Aboriginal Australian story, and Once Upon A Time… there was a Little Bird, a tale about kindness that teaches children how important it is to care for others.
