Piggybook, Anthony Browne
5 Piggybook
Anthony Browne USA Dragonfly Books 1987 067980837X / 9780679808374 Soft cover New Book 24.8 x 21.0 x 0.3 cm 
Illus. in full color. "Mr. Piggott and his sons are a male chauvinist lot who, outside of yelling for their dinner, don't exercise themselves much around the house. When Mrs. Piggott finally tires of the endless chores that sandwich her workday, she leaves the menfolk on their own, with a note saying, 'You are pigs.' With the cooking and housework untended, they soon turn genuinely porcine, a transformation Browne foreshadows with pig faces on the wallpaper, vases, fireplace, phone. As in most of Browne's art, there is more than a touch of irony and visual humor here. Fun to read aloud."--Bulletin, Center for Children's Books.

On the Wings of a Butterfly: A Special Story to support conversations on grief and loss, Belinda Messer
7 On the Wings of a Butterfly: A Special Story to support conversations on grief and loss
Belinda Messer Australia Boolarong Press 2016 0992538734 / 9780992538736 Hardcover New Book 21.1 x 18.4 x 0.5 cm 
This very special book on grief for young children up to 9 years is suitable for all children who are experiencing the loss of a loved one or who are preparing for the loss of a somebody close to them. Coming from a place of permission and comfort, this book will help a young one through this sad and very difficult to understand time. I drew upon my own experiences when writing this book and used what would have made me feel better when I was a little girl losing my father at a very young age. Most children will experience loss during their childhood. Be it a close family member, pet, a baby born sleeping or somebody they know. I would be very happy to have bought comfort to families with my little book. Critique "Life is wonderful and joyous and thrilling but as adults we know that it can also be brutally tough at times. On The Wings Of A Butterfly beautifully guides children through the death of a loved one. Frankly, it's a must-have for every family bookshelf. Thank you, Belinda Messer for helping me explain loss to my kids." Rebecca Sparrow, author and columnist. "On the Wings of a Butterfly is a book written from the heart. I is an engaging resource which provides a framework for children to think about life and loss. This book encourages individuality in remembering loved ones after their death. Beautiful illustrations complement the text. I look forward to sharing this story at the clinic, Dr Peta Lilley, Clinical Psychologist "A lovely children's book that well explains the death of a loved one and the grief and loss that may follow. It gently guides them through questions and feelings that they might experience. I highly recommend this book for children aged 4 and over." Esther Elliot Professional Counsellor "My eight year old daughter loved it. And because it ends on a positive perspective, she wasn't weighed down from the heaviness of the topic, she was uplifted by the excitement of life's possibilities." Caity Longmire, Grief and Loss Counsellor.

It's every little girl's dream to be a ballerina, right? Well, not in the case of Belinda, the ninja ballerina. Enrolled in ballet classes against her will, Belinda would take a headstand over a pirouette any day. But nobody will actually listen to Belinda's protests that she wants to be a ninja, not a ballerina. That is until Belinda stages a one-girl protest and demands her rights. Her teacher has to put her thinking cap on and finally comes up with a solution that will keep everybody happy. About the Author: Candida Baker is a well-known writer and journalist. She has had numerous books published, and has worked on many magazines and newspapers including The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Australian.

This is her third children's book.
