Cover ImageThe Hug (A Hedgehog and Tortoise Story) 

Hedgehog was feeling sad.
As sad as a hedgehog can feel.
So sad only one thing could help . . .

Tortoise was feeling sad.
As sad as a tortoise can feel.
So sad only one thing could help . . .

In this clever flipbook, both a hedgehog and a tortoise are looking for a hug. They ask all the other animals they come across but for some reason no one will hug them. Until a wise owl explains: Hedgehog is too spiky; Tortoise is too bony.

And that’s when they find each other!

Mr Leafy and Friends 

Mr Leafy and Friends by [Rebecca Claire, Sarah-Leigh Wills]Mr Leafy and Friends Kindle Edition

Mr Leafy and Friends is a picture book that encourages children to be more mindful and enjoy the nature that surrounds them. It is beautifully illustrated and written in rhyme, with a bee to find on every illustration and a list of nature related activities included in the back.

‘Mr Leafy is a beautiful tree, a wondrous site for all to see; he stands tall branches swaying high in the sky, witnessing things not always noticed by you and I. Can you guess what he can as he stands viewing the world majestically?’

Mr Leafy sees fluffy tailed rabbits hopping by and beautiful brown hares leaping high; he also experiences hugs, observes birds, feels squirrels, hears vehicles and witnesses the seasons passing by, along with experiencing many other things. ‘Mr Leafy never sleeps; he sees many sights as he stands majestically all day and night. If he could talk he’d tell you a tale or two. Look after Mr Leafy and his friends and he will help look after you.’

Mr Leafy and his friends live and surround us all, but they are rarely noticed despite standing so tall. Mr Leafy and his friends are important to help sustain life and this book aims to help little ones appreciate the nature outside.
