•Books• newest additions to our collection. I have been dying to add these particular ones! We are definitely transitioning away from board books now and Yona-Gray can easily listen to longer stories too. She brings us books to read ALL DAY. I’m very conscious about which books we get her, first choices always being a book written/illustrated by a woman or - even better- the main character being a girl, without the character portraying gender stereotypes (eg passive, princess-types). And equally important; the story or illustrations portraying diversity.
We’ve always read books a bit out of her age-range but she seems to really enjoy listening and looking at all the pictures, pointing things out on every page. We’ve read to Yona-Gray since she was a teeny baby in both German and English and I’m happy to say she’s become a little bookworm. This mama loves nothing more than to read beautiful stories to her Honey! The next haul will be when we’re in Germany next month because we now have a serious lack of German books! #childrensbooks #booksforkids #childrensbookillustration #books #bookclub #childrensliterature #readmore #readmorebooks #bookworm #booksofinstagram #bookstagram #flyingeyebooks #carsonellis #illustration #bookillustration

Last year I raved about the picture book entitled Leaf 🍂 written and illustrated by the same author/illustrator of this book, Sandra Dieckmann. This year, Sandra is back with another powerful animal picture book that is so timely and relevant to the current events of today.

Down in the valley, lots of animals all live peacefully in a beautiful and lush environment...until one day, the dog appeared. The dog ate everything including animals, trees, mountains, the sky and the sun. He ate and ate until there was nothing left to take.

Meanwhile, in the dog’s belly, all of the animals made due and re-built their environment making it stronger and more robust than ever!

There are so many themes and lessons to be learned about bullying, friendship, community, loss, teamwork, hope, empathy and rebuilding. I absolutely love the way all of the animals worked together and adjusted to their new way of life without complaining or bickering! This book fills me with hope for our future. I can only hope we’ll have a happy ending like this. Look for this one in August 2018 from @flyingeyebooks. #thedogthatatetheworld #sandradieckmann #flyingeyebooks #bullyingawareness #bullyingprevention

#Monday got you wishing you could sail off into the sunset? Well that's just what sea captain Joshua Slocum did in 1895 when he became the first person to sail single-handedly all around the world, thanks to the perfect balance and ability to stay on course on its own of his boat Spray ⛵️
From Boats: Fast & Slow by Iris Volant & @JaromVogel, out now in the 🇬🇧,🇺🇸& 🇨🇦 and at www.flyingeyebooks.com.

Just found the most adorable perfect kids book! #book #kidsbook #cactus #hugme #flyingeyebooks #simonaciraolo #houseplant

Down in the valley animals play and laugh, bear with bear, fox with fox and bird with bird. Until one day a huge dog appears whose greed sees him gobble up everything around him. With dark times forcing them to come together as a community, the animals find new friendships and fresh hope.
This is a beautifully illustrated book with a message that has never been so important.
The text gives the reader just enough to gain meaning while also giving room for inference. A treasure for all teachers out there! Support independent bookshops, buy now at our website- link in bio.

This felt so wrong! I had to tear out the title page to send back to the distributor because it arrived damaged. It felt like sacrilege purposely destroying a book. Still, the rest is still intact 🙂 The other book in this series by Carl Johansson (swipe left) wasn’t damaged and is available to buy from our website, link in bio. Striking, stylish illustrations showcase a crazy collection of real and imaginary cars. Children will have great fun sorting the real from fantasy and who knows - may be inspired to create their own crazy car! #lovebooks #kidsbooklove #childrensbookshop #childrensbooks #childrensnonfiction #kidsbooks #kidlit #kidsnonfiction #flyingeyebooks #kidsbookstagram #kidsbookstore #pagesofjoychildrensbooks #booksforkids #picturebooks #picturebooksofinstagram #picturebookswelove #allkindsofplanes #allkindsofcars #childrenreading #childrensliterature #independentbookshop #onlinebookshop #mumblogger #teacherspayteachers #teacherblogger #dadblog

The Secret of the Black Rock by Joe Todd-Staton as so good. 🤓 It reminded me of The Iron Giant in a way and I don't know if that makes sense. 😕
I, 100% recommend this book. I even cried reading this. That's how incredibly sweet and beautiful the story and illustrations are. 😘

The colour combinations, the overall composition of forms, lines etc on the spreads and a nice story (about the joy of reading books ) make this a happy reading. #thebestbookintheworld #rilla #flyingeyebooks #picturebook #bilderbok #jagärläsare

재입고 소식 -! 커버부터 진동하는 미친 귀여움의 향기. [ A VERY LATE STORY ] 이 책은 제목처럼 이야기가 아주 늦게 시작돼요. 아니 어떻게보면 이 책은 이야기가 시작되긴 커녕 그냥 이야기 없이 끝나는 것 처럼 보이기도 하네요.
제가 지금 무슨말을 하는지 모르겠다면 내용을 들여다 봅시다. -
-

아주 먼 옛날, 어떤 빈 페이지가 있었어요. 그런데 이 빈 페이지는 그리 오래가지 않았죠. 어느 날 대뜸 말이죠.
동물 친구들 (동물이 아닐지도 몰라요. 그냥 전부 젤리처럼 생겼네요.) 은 이 빈 공간에서 뭘 해야 할지 몰랐어요. 어디로 가야 할지도 모르고요.
단지 그들이 깨닫게 된 것은 '우리는 책 안에 있어!' 였고, 기다리고 있다면 누군가가 이야기를 줄 것이라고 생각했어요. ( 아주 가소롭게 말이죠. )
하지만 이 중 참을성 없는 토끼는 이야기를 마냥 기다리는 친구들을 이해할 수 없었어요. 처음부터 이해를 안 하려 했을지도 몰라요.
그저 이 지루한 상황을 벗어나 혼자 놀기 시작합니다.. 계속요. 계속 혼자 놉니다. 이야기를 기다리던 친구 녀석들은 어떻게 될까요? 토끼는 또 어떻게 될까요? -
-

매 페이지마다 사랑스러움이 증폭하는 미친 종이 속 그림녀석들!
귀여움 앞에 굴복해버릴 여러분들을 위해 커버에 주의마크를 붙혀둬야 할 그림책! -

I love this series by @flyingeyebooks! It is perfect for the younger aged kids to learn facts without feeling overwhelmed with text or tricky wording. .
.
This book features facts and fish from the ocean. With cute illustrations and easy to read text. The last page displays all the animals shown and their names. My little boys love pointing them out and asking me to name them all. .

One Day On Our Blue Planet....in the ocean
By: Ella Bailey
@flyingeyebooks

So in love with this sweet, inspiring story by @flyingeyebooks about a little gardener who needs some help to make his home beautiful again.
.
“There was once a little gardener and his garden meant everything to him. He who worked hard, very hard, but he was just too little (or at least he felt he was).
.
Sometimes the task seems too big, but this little story (with such beautiful illustrations) paints the perfect picture of the joy that comes when we are noticed and supported. “Many hands make light work!”

Why I love picture books, in a nutshell - because they start with lines like this:
.
“Once, not too long ago, two special edamame beans were born on the very same day.
.
These beans shared a dream to become the greatest table tennis players in the world.”
.
I mean, I’m sorry, a book about edamame beans who play table tennis and who ultimately learn that the joy of playing is better than winning? Genius! And oh, the illustrations- bright, bold and beautiful.
.
This is an absolutely winner from @flyingeyebooks and it’s available now! I’ll be adding this one to my Amazon store if you’d like to shop through the link in my bio. There are so many lessons in this book: sportsmanship, friendship, hard work. This is going straight into our story rotation! Big thanks to Flying Eye for sending this one my way!

I read this after @spiky_penelope recommended it on the @wearestorytellersmedia podcast - thank goodness! I absolutely love Hilda's world and can't wait to read the other books and watch the Netflix series. The illustrations in this book are so gorgeous - the saturated colors look contemporary but overall the style is timeless.

Leaf by Sandra Dieckmann *

What a stunning book! I’m learning to look for @flyingeyebooks ! They are so beautiful. If you can get past staring at the artwork long enough to read the text, the story is lovely, too. (I’m always so happy when outstanding illustrations are accompanied by a worthy story!) This is a story about a mysterious stranger disturbing the comfort of familiarity previously known to the animals of the wild wood. They gather and disagree about whether he might be dangerous. Finally, when the crows take the time to hear the bear’s story, they see that he is lonely and in distress and has lost his way. Once they understand that he means them no harm, they are moved by compassion to help him. Sweet story about not judging a book by its cover, understanding differences, giving the benefit of the doubt, and helping others. Check it out!
