Share the love this Mother's Day with two beautiful children's books from Little Tiger Press.
I Love My Mummy by Jonathan Litton and Fhiona Galloway
Turn the pages and feel the love in this charming and innovative picture book that was just made for sharing.
As part of the My Little World series, this sturdy board book, with its appealing die-cut finger holes, is a blossoming book of giving to celebrate the special love between a mother and her child.
Join the colourful cast of animal characters who all want to say thank you to their mummy with gifts ranging from a jar of honey to a bunch of flowers.
Fhiona Galloway’s bold, bright artwork brings to life Jonathan Litton’s warm and enchanting rhyming text while the flower-shaped finger holes let your little ones get in on the action.
Love all wrapped up in one warm and clever book!

The Very Grumpy Day by Alison Edgson and Stella J. Jones
Love also wins the day in this caring, cautionary tale about a bear in a big, bad mood!
Friendship also gets star billing in a stunningly illustrated picture book which features a grumpy bear whose bad mood spreads like a rash through the woodland animals until one small act of kindness breaks the bad spell.
Bear’s angry, stomping footsteps cause a landslide in Mole’s tunnel and from there it’s downhill all the way as Mole snaps at Hedgehog and Fox feels the prickly power of an angry Hedgehog. Soon Bear’s bad mood has made everyone grumpy! All except for Mouse whose sweet treat gift for Bear makes everyone happy again.
Full of warmth, fun and the rewards of friendship and kindness, Alison Edgson’s imaginative text shows little ones just how much a bad mood can affect others while Stella J. Jones’ expressive illustrations are guaranteed to win hearts and minds.
A super story with a thoughtful message…
