Books Always Everywhere

Books Always Everywhere

Text by Jane Blatt, Illustrations by Sarah Massini
 Published by Nosy Crow


Wow, isn’t time flying by, with less than a week to go until my due date, our baby could come any day now and we’re getting excited to finally meet him or her.

I can’t wait to encourage a love of books and especially with this book, Books Always Everywhere, published by Nosy Crow certainly made me day dream about reading to my little one.  And as written on the back…'it’s never too soon to share a good book with your little ones'.

This hardback book introduces to young children, that books can be anything - from a chair, or a tower to a hat - but the best thing they can be is a book. With such lovely delightful illustrations by Sarah Massini, each page holds lovely engaging illustrations that would allow you to talk and ask the child about whats happening on the pages from building a house out of books to reading in bed with books and easy to mimic what is happening. 

The words are few and very simple; Book big, book small, book tall etc. Though fewer words than your typical picture book, the words used are all first words that children are taught when they start school. This lovely little book makes a great way of introducing these simple, descriptive words and with such pretty illustrations, it will make it a delight to read to any young child.

Books Always Everywhere is available to buy in bookshops and from the Nosy Crow website.
