IS IT CHRISTMAS YET? BY JANE CHAPMAN
A little board book with a soft squidgy cover perfect for preschoolers who keep asking that familiar question, Is it Christmas yet? Featuring only a Daddy bear and his son it will appeal to single parents as well. I really like, leading up to the big day, that they work together to avert disaster making the little bear forget about what day it is when it actually arrives! Very appealing in the run up!

GEORGE
BY ALEX GINO
 This is a gently story of a young boy George who knows she's really a girl.
A transgender book for kids that gives support to those who need it and informs those who have little knowledge of this area which included me! Sensitive, thought provoking and heartbreaking. A simple but powerful message for acceptance and about not being afraid of who you are which will, I hope, invite much discussion and appeal to a wider audience.
