We love Philip Bunting books! This time he has teamed up with his wife for this gorgeous book. Be sure to check his page as he's added in a few of the pages for you to see. His illustrations are divine! #Repost@philip.bunting
I’m delighted to announce that I have a new book coming out in October! This one is authored by my incredibly talented better half, @laura_bunting.
Inspired by the mischievous adventures of our eldest son – Leo (4) – Koalas Eat Gum Leaves is a bit of a cautionary tale. The book tells the story of one little marsupial (who has had quite enough of his gum leaf diet), as he goes on the lookout for some tastier tucker. 🐨🍦 #KoalasEatGumLeaves#kidlit#koala#picturebook

New review ahead! But first, don't forget to enter our huge picture book #giveaway if you haven't already! Scroll back to either of the last two posts for details. 🐘❤️📚 One of the things I've been passionate about since becoming a mom-- and, more recently, a school library media specialist-- is raising global citizens. In light of the intolerance, hate and divisiveness in the world, I want my children - and my students - to be educated about the world around them and to respect differences. My goal is to nurture empathetic young men and women who embrace every opportunity to build bridges in our increasingly interconnected society.
This is why I fell hard for This is How We Do It, by Matt Lamothe. This is How We Do It tells the story of seven children living in various countries around the world: Italy, Peru, Uganda, Russia, Japan, India and Iran. It is a study in culture, daily routines, family, cuisine, and education, giving kids a peek into the lives of other children abroad: they way they live, the way they go to school, they way they sleep and play and eat.
They say books serve as windows and mirrors, right? "Mirrors," because every child should be able to find themselves in a book, and "windows," because books give us glimpses into the lives of people living oceans away. This is How We Do It is a perfect "window" book, transporting kids around the world and back again, all the while allowing them to see that while the details of our days may differ, we share the same foundations and the same passion for family, friends, education and recreation. This is a multicultural beauty that would be an excellent addition to every school classroom and every family with an eye on introducing kids to multiculturalism and global citizenship.
