‘Light-hearted take on the challenge of sharing’ The Ish Mother recommends Not My Hats!

The Ish Mother has just posted a lovely review for Not My Hats! by Tracy Gunaratnam with illustrations by Alea Marley:

I like how this is a really humorous, light-hearted take on the challenge of sharing. So many picture books about toddler ‘issues’ can come across as a bit didactic and overbearing, but this tackles a common problem with humour. It’s really fun to read aloud too, with plenty of rhyming sections for little ones to enjoy.

Another thing I like about this book is that the illustrations are really bold and clear – although a lot is shown on each page, the use of block colours stops it from feeling ‘fussy’ and overwhelming for little one’s eyes. 

I’d recommend this book for anyone trying to explain the idea of sharing to their little one, it is a really tricky concept for them to grasp but this book tackles it in such a funny and relaxed way that they won’t even realise they’re getting a moral lesson as you read it!’

Thanks, Bec!
