Today I’m pleased to share with you the second set of books I received from publisher Walker Books.  Yes, it’s the 1st of April and I was going to do an April fools blog post, but given what’s happened in my life recently (you can read about it here) I’m going to be easy on myself and just post this instead and I suppose with this post I’m April fooling you that it’s March when it isn’t any more, lol.

Anyway, today I’m sharing so many wonderful new children’s books that came from Walker Books and a huge thank you to Hannah for all of these.  Now I forgot to take a photo of the books together, except as a stack, so you’ll have a treat of seeing each individual picture of each book and it’s blurb below instead of my usual picture of picture books together, etc.. 🙂  First let’s look at the stack and then the books in turn…
