Our world

In this section you will find stories about a range of topics including the seasons, migration and environmental issues. We hope you will enjoy sharing our selection with your children and that the books and activities will also give you the chance to talk together about our world and important topics such as climate change, recycling, endangered animals and sustainability.

As always, we have included ideas for talking together about the books, things to make and do and suggestions for how to find out more or simple ways to make a difference.

The majority of these are engaging stories, our activity ideas and suggestions pick up on the themes. Lovemybooks patron Mini Grey says:

The great thing about picture books is they often involve an adult and a child reading together – so the picture book message can be for everyone of all ages. A picture book might not change the world, but it can change your mind. Books are a fantastic delivery system for ideas, and every book you read will change your mind a bit.’
