    Little Big Sister, written by Eoin Colfer and illustrated by Celia Ivey, tells the story of Starr, a girl with dwarfism who lives with her mum and younger sister, Babs. As the girls get older and Babs overtakes Starr’s height, Starr understands there is something different about her. When Starr starts primary school she is at first upset by being shorter than the other children. But with help from her mum and teacher, Starr finds the courage to shine. A fun and moving story about disability, family and fitting in, told by a major children’s author and illustrated by an artist with dwarfism.

    I Am the Wind: Irish Poems for Children Everywhere, is an award-winning collection of poetry edited by Lucinda Jacob and brightly illustrated by Ashwin Chacko.  Family favourites like Boland, Heaney, Meehan and Yeats sit alongside diverse new voices from Ireland. You’ll find thoughtful, surprising and powerful poems here. Poems about love and skateboarding, about feeling lonely and making friends, about jellyfish, magic, school, snowdrops, monsters, blackbirds… and lots, lots more. A book to treasure now and always.

    Mighty Mindsets: How mindfulness can help your child with life's ups and downs, written by Niamh Doyle and illustrated by Carol Betera is a gentle non-fiction picture book about emotions, mindfulness, your amazing brain and how to feel calm.
    How does your brain work, and what does it have to do with moods? Why do you sometimes feel anxious, cross or afraid, and what can you do about it? How can breathing, looking at a snowglobe, or changing what the voice inside you says, help you feel better? When we tell ourselves negative stories – like “I’m not good at maths” – it becomes harder to learn. But if we can change our mindset – “I’m not good at maths yet” – we help our brains to learn. Mighty Mindsets puts together mindsets, mindfulness and neuroscience in a gentle self-care manual for young readers.
