We are so wonderfully lucky to receive some beautiful books to share across my social feeds and so many that it is impossible to dedicate full blog posts to them all. But there are some books that are simply special, and so very deserving of a post.
One such book arrived last week and is called We Travel so Far. This beauty of a book is written by Laura Knowles (of It starts with a seed which is one of the most exquisite books). The book is expertly illustrated by Chris Madden who, it seems, is local to me. All the best people are in Manchester 🙂

Last night Mr D went to football so I got a little time with just Miss E -H was asleep. We read this stunning book all about the wonder of animal migration. It's stunning and written by @laura_makes_books and illustrated by someone local to me, @maddenillustration. We have talked a little about migration this week and this is the perfect way to explore a little more 😍
Anyhow, this book looks at the wonder that is migration – something that I find difficult to comprehend as a 30 something adult, let alone the children. The animal world is really spectacular and this book manages to convey that wonder in a fabulous way. It looks at the tiny Hummingbird as well as the enormous whale and everything in between including leatherback turtles, Emperor Penguins and the Arctic Tern.
The stories of 25 different animals are covered in this book and it is a wonderful book to sit and share. Mr D does football on a Thursday evening so, when Mr H is asleep I have some time just Miss E and I. We shared this book last week, snuggled up together on the sofa and she was completely mesmerised by it. She was enthralled by the story of the Whooping Cranes and I am sure we will come back to this book time and time again.
It is the perfect addition to the home library and is sure to ignite interest in the fascinating and breathtaking journeys that so many animals take.
