Tonight’s bedtime read, with my eldest was this joyful book. In Every House, on Every Street written by Jess Hitchman and illustrated by Lili La Baleine. This delightful book is a reminder of who you share your home with not how your home is.
Though it’s easy to compare the material things, ultimately it’s all about the important people in your lives and the memories you make with them. Whether that be making a cake with your little ones and shaking those hips as you whisk or turning the dining table into an art fuelled studio with sequins and lolly sticks galore.
If you’re due to explore home and family life in your learning setting I highly recommend this book.
Readers will witness the routine of a family of four, sharing with readers that doing little tasks together can be the most meaningful of all. There’s also an underlying theme within the book of emotions. It highlights that talking through your emotions and sharing how you feel is important but also it’s important that families make time for this.
The detailed diverse illustrations and the rhyming text make this a rather appealing book for young readers and the surprise fold out page at the end, complete with peek through parts is an absolute treat.
I look forward to seeing more from illustrator Lili la Baleine and author Jess Hitchman. I recently met Jess at a publishing event and really enjoyed chatting with her. My girls are rather pleased that their copy of the book is signed. How lucky.
Do seek this book out, it’s sure to be a read aloud that many will enjoy.
