Today I want to share with you two books which came through to me in the post recently.  Both of these are from the wonderful people at publisher Graffeg who publish some really beautiful picture books for children.  One of these books is a hardback while the other is a paperback and both have what sound like interesting stories.  I’ve photographed these seperately so let’s take a look at the first one which is the paperback…

I Am An Artist by Kertu Sillaste & Adam Cullen – What is an artist? Sometimes John finds art easy, sometimes it’s hard, sometimes art is like a game, but sometimes it’s a puzzle. This book takes us through the many ups and downs of John’s life as an artist whilst also showing the fun that can be had with many different artforms, including drawing, sculpture, painting, photography and many more.
Being an artist is about being brave, frustrated and disappointed. But it’s also about being creative, imaginative, excited and fulfilled – which makes it a wonderful thing for all children to say with confidence … ‘I am an ARTIST!’
Originally published in Estonian, this book has been expertly translated by Adam Cullen.

And now for the hardback…

Fletcher and the Rainbow by Julia Rawlinson & Tiphanie Beeke – When Fletcher sees a dazzling rainbow, he is determined to help it shine forever. Guided by his friends, he chases it through the dripping wood… but the rainbow soon starts to fade. Once the last scrap of colour is gone, Fletcher feels he has failed – until he realises something wonderful!
Join Fletcher and his friends as they celebrate the glorious colours of autumn in this uplifting story of hope.

 

Don’t both of these books sound interesting and Fletcher just looks so cute! 🙂  I can’t wait to read both of these and will post reviews as soon as I can, so please do look out for those.
