The Boy the Mole the Fox and the Horse
This is a beautiful book by Charlie Mackesy. It is for times when you need a touch of hope and reassurance, such as now, and means something different to each person who reads it. Click on the link to listen to the book read aloud on YouTube.

The Book of Hopes
Award-winning children’s author, Katherine Rundell, has launched The Book of Hopes: Words and Pictures to Comfort, Inspire and Entertain Children in Lockdown, which is hosted exclusively on Family Zone. It is a collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures, with contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon, Jacqueline Wilson – and Katherine herself.
The Book of Hopes aims to comfort, inspire and encourage children during lockdown through delight, new ideas, ridiculous jokes and heroic tales. There are true accounts of cats and hares and plastic-devouring caterpillars; there are doodles and flowers; revolting poems and beautiful poems; and there are stories of space travel and new shoes and dragons.
