Here are some of Minipreneur’s favourite picture books for International Children’s Book Day.

I’m Sticking With You Too by Smriti Halls & Steve Small

Minipreneur loves exploring pictures by the illustrator Steve Small, so we simply had to get this book as soon as it was published. A joyful tale about acceptance and belonging, this beautifully written, gorgeously illustrated follow-up to the bestselling I’m Sticking with You is the perfect book for examining how, even if new friends might disrupt the rhythm at first, the sense of belonging
that friendship can bring has the potential to make your heart sing!

The Dragon with the Blazing Bottom by Beach

Minipreneur loves a laugh-out-loud story so I couldn’t wait to read him this first book in a fabulously funny and hugely appealing A Very Fiery Fairy Tale series about a dragon who has lost his flame from the hugely exciting new picture book talent, Beach. This hilarious and dynamic character-driven picture book has a truly explosive ending that young children will love.

Little Bear by Richard Jones

From the highly talented author-illustrator Richard Jones, Little Bear is a tender, stunningly illustrated story about the friendship between a boy and a little polar bear. I loved this book as it helped Minipreneur understand the concept of letting go with love.

How to Track a Sabre-Toothed Tiger by Caryl Hart & Ed Eaves

This book transported Minipreneur to the Stone Age. How to Track a Sabre-Toothed Tiger is the latest adventure in the bestselling Albie series as we join Albie on a prehistoric adventure where he meets lots of amazing animals on the way. Minipreneur loved getting involved in the fun and naming all the different animals.

The Runaway Pea Left Behind by Kjartan Poskitt & Alex Willmore

Disaster strikes when Pea falls out of the shopping bag. Follow Pea as he journeys across the city on a skateboard, bus, and even on the wings of a passing-by bird for the adventure of a lifetime. Sometimes it pays to be small! The Runaway Pea Left Behind is laugh-out-loud funny, bursting with imagination, and the most perfect third story in this much-loved series. Minipreneur thinks this story is hilarious and giggles all the way through it!
