There's something amazing about kids books. They take you far away into a world that you wouldn't ever experience with adults books. Picture books for example can evoke so much emotion from a series of pictures, that the words almost don't matter!
When I had Max I decided from the get go that he would be surrounded by books. It helps that I have a constant supply of amazing ones to choose from at work, but even if I didn't work where I do then I would still be buying books by the bucketload. It opens them up to a new world where their imaginations can run riot.
One of our favourite books and authors is Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers. It tells the story of a boy who finds a penguin. Obviously he assumes the penguin is lost and he needs to go home. But is that really where the penguin wants to be? It's a classic tale that tells the true meaning of friendship and that happiness can sometimes be found in the most unexpected places.
The illustrations are amazing and a perfect compliment to the story. It's such a well loved tale that it's even been turned into a short animation. One that even the most hardest of hearts will silently sob at through the musical short.
