Ramon loves to draw, anywhere, anytime and anything. One day his brother laughs at him and Ramon tries harder but eventually, when it doesn’t go the way he plans he decides to give up. That is until his sister shows him a different way to see things. Ramon learns that ‘ish’ is a powerful concept, a wonderful thing.

This is a beautiful book on creativity, perspective and encouragement. Totally adorable, with simple language, simple but incredibly appealing illustrations. I totally love Reynold’s books.

Highly Recommended.

Yes We Can!

By: Sam McBratney

Illustrated by: Charles Fuge

Little Roo, Country Mouse and Quacker Duck decide to build a leaf mountain. It’s hard work so they start to play a game but at the end of it no-one is very happy. Little Roo’s mother comes along to see what is going on.

An adorable tale of fun, friendship and the discovery that everyone can be good at something.

Another wonderful pairing of McBratney and Fuge. I have said it before and will say it agin I love Charles Fuge’s illustrations. There are bright colours and wonderful expressions teamed with delightfully appealing text that contains a beautiful truth.
