What to Say When You Don’t Know What to Say

Picture Book | Davina Bell and Hilary Jean Tapper | Lothian Children’s Book

This heart-warming book gently depicts children interacting with one another at home, preschool and in the playground as they navigate life’s little moments and big emotions. I particularly love that the reader can follow each child’s individual journey—making a mistake, moving house, losing a pet—as well as observe how their lives intersect. Each page features a bright, emotive illustration of a day-to-day scenario and a suggested verbal response, such as: ‘You can cry. I don’t mind’. Other prompts include ‘Want to join in?’; ‘I like you just how you are’; and, ‘I’m feeling a bit shy’. Suitable for ages 3 to 100. (Reviewed by Lauren Millington)
