Read the beans book!

A couple of weeks ago, Libby was lucky enough to be sent two more of the beautiful Zoe & Beans books to review. The books are called "Hello Ladybird" and "We're Not Scared". 


As always, both books feature really sweet, simple stories and gorgeous, brightly coloured, eye-catching illustrations. 

Hello Ladybird follows the story of Zoe and Beans finding a ladybird, only to lose it again. Luckily enough, it turns up, just where you wouldn't expect it! 

We're not scared is another lovely book that demonstrates to children that so many of the things that people are commonly afraid of are actually fine. Zoe and Beans aren't scared of anything... but in a sweet little twist at the end of the book, they show that they do have a sensitive side as well! 

Libby always loves the Zoe and Beans books, and each time she has some new ones I notice her taking in more and more from both the story and the illustrations. This time, she particularly loved looking for the ladybird. I know how much she enjoyed the books, because a couple of days after we'd last read them, we were sat on the bed in my room reading when Libby suddenly jumped up. She climbed off the bed and ran into her room, shouting "read the Beans book!" 

Sure enough, back she came with one of these books in each hand. I think it's safe to say that they're a hit!
