My children are a bit old for picture books now (are you ever too old for picture books though?) but I was enticed to read this one because of its focus on self belief, by encouraging positive thinking in children. I am a big believer in the power of positive thinking.
The book is about a lovely ittle girl called Bella Boo and her adventures in her enormous garden. She loves to dance play and exploring in her garden, but she is rather lonely. Then she meets an unusual little tree man who can walk and talk and needs her to help him.
The story is enchanting and the illustrations just burst with life and colour…wonderful they really enhance the story.
You can buy Bella boo and bloomer fen from Amazon a sweet story with a really upbeat, affirming message.
