Today DK brings out a lovely Summer picture book written by Zoe Armstrong and illustrated by Sara Ugolotti, Up In The Air. This wonderful children’s illustrated book celebrates the nature around and above us, encouraging children to look, listen, and take notice with a mix of drawings and nature photos. It could be defined as a biology compendium for very young children. Useful for primary school pupils to digest information in a very fun way.

There’s nothing quite like searching the rocks on a beach until that special one catches your eye – a perfect shape, a gorgeous colour, an intriguing pattern. I have been a fan of pebble spotting since I was a little girl. I still have a few meaningful pebbles collected from beautiful beaches over the years, the heart-shaped ones being my favourite ones. As the UK slowly eases out of lockdown and parents begin to plan their family holidays for the summer, Clive Mitchell’s new guide on pebble spotting is the perfect introduction (for them and their children) to everything they didn’t know there was to know about the mindful pleasure of pebble spotting.

By Francesca Lombardo – I was 25 years old when I asked myself questions such as “why can’t she see me?”, “why can’t she hear me?”, “who is she?”, “who was she really when she was a child just like me?”.
The person I wanted to ask all these questions was my mother. A mystery to me as a child, as a teen and as young women that I longed to unlock. But mostly a pain that leaves many daughters struggling with their sense of self-worth and a fractured identity; a yearning that turns into an abyssal void. It was then that I jotted down a letter to her, a letter that I have never sent.
