LoveReading View on It's Your World Now!

May 2019 Debut of the Month

This bright, busy book – the text delivered via an irresistible bouncy rhyme – presents children with lots to look at, and lots to think about too. The story is told by a parent, who excitedly details all the world has to offer, and all the potential for children to find happiness and fulfilment as they grow up. There are warnings too that it’s not always easy, but that’s followed by the reassuring reminder that whatever happens, one thing won’t change: from your head down to you toe, no matter what/ I love you so. The artwork is contemporary but the message is timeless and it’s an excellent book for parent and child to share.

It's Your World Now! Synopsis

So go and play and live and learn. It's your world now, this is your turn to think and ask and make and do. The world is magic, just like you! A beautiful and funny celebration of the world and the potential of each and every child.

This is the perfect book to read out loud - helping children to appreciate the wonderful things that exist in the world, and the great things that they can do, as well as allowing them to understand some of the setbacks that may happen. And whatever happens, the child is reassured that their parents will always love them. Barry Falls' debut picture book is a brilliantly-illustrated, funny and thought-provoking celebration of where you might go and what you might do in life.
