Of Beautiful Illustrations & Engaging Text: 5 Books for your Preschooler

This April give your child a best friend, a book with engaging text and beautiful illustrations.

Welcome to our World by Moira Butterfield with Harriet Lynas

Subtitled “A celebration of children everywhere”, this delightful book is full of wonderful illustrations with interesting facts that inquisitive preschoolers adore. The book helps children to learn to say “My name is” in different languages. An interactive book that will leave children glued to their seats as they discover facts like Australian children get to eat sugar sprinkles on toast for breakfast. Preschoolers can wow grown-ups with sayings from around the world such as “Some days honey, some days onions” (you win some, you lose some).

Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth by Nicola Davies with Emily Sutton

Is your child a young nature lover? Lots: The Diversity of Life on Earth is the perfect book for your preschooler. A beautiful hardback book with almost old-fashioned yet lovely illustrations is guaranteed to become the young reader’s best friend. Illustrations by Emily Sutton will attract even the adults to pick up the book. Prepare your mini eco-warrior with some amazing facts about the diversity of the planet that your little one would love.

Zog and the Flying Doctors by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler

After the Gruffalo’s child, children’s book dream team Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are back with another adventurous book for their young fans. Zog the dragon, Princess Pearl, and Sir Gadabout have taken their adventure to the skies! The flying doctors are on duty while Princess Pearl's uncle, the king, thinks princesses should stay in their towers and embroider cushions all day! Will the team be able to save the king from “orange fever” and his prejudices?

Everything You Need for a Treehouse by Carter Higgins with Emily Hughes

Curated by the magical team of picture book creators Higgins and Hughes, this beautifully illustrated hardback is an ode to outdoor exploration that will make your child want to explore the natural kingdom. A beautiful and delightful bedtime treat, the book is almost like a poem as it journeys through the universal wonder of treehouses. Who wouldn’t want to live among the branches after reading this?

Boogie Bear by David Walliams with Tony Ross

The tale of a brown bear and a polar bear, Boogie Bear is a gripping book that introduces the concept of inter-racial harmony in an unlikely but incredible way. The two bears end up realising that their differences are only fur-deep. David Walliams is a magician when it comes to cooking up a sweet and entertaining story and Tony Ross’ humorous illustrations deliver the messages with perfection. Pick your copy and enjoy this wonderful story with your preschooler!
