All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction!! So wonderful to see a truly deserving novel win this prestigious award – if you have not yet read this book now is the time and you’ll find out why it has won, and why it has been a favourite of all readers this past year.
Every once in a while there is a new book for children that every family needs to own. This year it is The Slippers’ Keeper by Ian Wallace.
This picture book is about a man who made it his mission to help preserve – and increase – the Showy Lady’s Slippers that we are sometimes fortunate enough to see in the spring. Beautifully illustrated, this book is both a story and a nature lesson for children of all ages – and their parents and grandparents.
