A children’s book for our time.
Young minds haven’t changed much in a society where children have never been freer to be who they are. We talk about being inclusive, but children fear the unknown and fitting into your peer group is all-encompassing.
This story is charming. It takes one little girl’s fear about one social issue, vegetarianism—but the message would be the same for any child. Being ‘different’ is okay. Embrace who you are and be what you want to be.
Fitting in at school affects most children. Your child will experience a lovely story with beautiful pictures. However, with the correct prompting, this book is an ideal lead-in. It will encourage young children to open up to their parents during reading time and talk about their concerns.
A beautiful, illustrated storybook to help children understand their world. Perfect for parents to read to very young children. And just as good for a slightly older child learning to read, with some new words to challenge them.
A story with a message to add to your child’s library.
Katherine Black / Susan (Sooz) Simpson
Founder of Best Book Editors
Katherine has held almost every single job imaginable, from painting gnomes to zookeeper. She spent most of her life in the caring profession and has managed both a nursing home and a care agency. But her passion for the written language always brings her home to novel writing.
Born in Tyne-and-Wear, North-East England, she has settled in the beautiful Lake District, Cumbria, with her partner, two dogs, a cat, an iguana and a python (just don’t ask her which of those six things is her favourite!).
She specialises in content creation and social media outreach, and has been a developmental editor for hundreds of clients. She owns and operates bestbookeditors.com where she helps foundling authors polish their skills. However, after being diagnosed with a dramatic brain condition in 2022, she has had to let 23 staff go, and scale back the business. BBE is still very much open, we are just fewer and can’t take as much work on.
Katherine Black is the author of psychological thriller/detective/fantasy adventure novels.
