Emily Gravett

Author and illustrator of picture books.

Well, this little chameleon is friendless and blue. A wonderful, wonderful book about seeking friends, expressing one's feelings, facing rejection and the need to blend in. Both my kids love the illustrations and the fact that this book comprises about 20 words, give or take a few. #slurrpfarmbookworms #SummerReading
.
Fun fact: At a storytelling class a few weeks ago, I read this book as a precursor to another book, to drive home the message of friendship and why we value it so much. Turns out, at the end of the session, almost every child said they loved this book more than the main storybook. I didn't blame them since I loved it better than the other, more verbose and complex book too! Just goes to prove that the simplest messages are often the profoundest.

Me encanta los libros de dragones, y ¡Otra vez! Aparte de ser ideal para hablar de las rabietas, es un libro con un final genial, muy sorpresivo y divertido.

Los paquetitos son de fruta variada con zumo de pomelo envueltos en obleas de arroz. Solo hay que mojar la oblea y envolver.

Today...
So after weeks of viruses and weddings we are finally getting back to normal which means I'm mostly doing this! And washing, mountains and mountains of washing. 
I feel Badger and I are kindred spirits! I wouldn't cope very well in the messy forest either. But I also know that I need to stop and enjoy the little moments with both my children. And take some time for myself. To do something for myself. So with both children napping (albeit with one in my arms) I'm going to put my feet up, binge on chocolates that my friend brought yesterday and catch up on some TV. And I'm not going to feel guilty about it.

Are you a slave to fashion? Do you ditch your favourite wearable items just to follow trends? This is a book for you my friends. Harbet is here to teach you an important lesson. Harbet had a hat... an old hat. His Nana knitted it for him and in his mind it was the best.. the bees knees... his absolute favourite. That was until it was suggested to him that an 'old hat' should actually be replaced by a 'new hat' to keep up with the latest trends. However from the towering fruit platter.... to the brightly lit traffic cone hat... Harbet is having troubling keeping up with what's in the latest vogue magazine. He comes to the conclusion that he will never fit in and he really is missing his warm and cosy 'old hat'.... should he do?! A gorgeous book filled with colourful, quirky and glorious hats that will make you giggle. Topped with an important message that it is always more fun to be yourself. Hats off to this one 🎉 👒⛑🎩👑 #oldhat #emilygravettbook #picturebooks #storytime #childrensbooks #bookstagram #kidsbookstagram #kidsillustration #childrensillustration

Os presento al Dragón Fisgón! Compañero de aventuras, generador de sonrisas y amante del brócoli! Eso sí... Es un cotilla y un charlatán de mucho cuidado ¡No hay quién lo calle!
Yo soy de los que piensan que...
MARIONETA + LIBRO = ¡Combinación Perfecta!

OTRA VEZ de @emily_gravett
"Era casi la hora de irse a la cama... 'Cedric el dragón estaba enfadadísimo, furioso y enrojecido. Nunca, en toda su vida, (ni una sola vez) se ha ido a la cama...' ¿Otra vez?"
Esta divertida historia cargada de metaficción narra una situación que todos hemos pasado. ¿A quién nunca le han pedido una y otra vez que vuelva a leer o contar un cuento? Nuestras madres y padres lo hicieron con nosotros y ahora... ¡Es nuestro turno!
Sólo cabe esperar que el desenlace de cada historia no sea como el de este cuento...
Cómo curiosidad ajena a la historia y centrándome en la edición de los libros, os diré que, como en muchos otros casos, las ediciones originales no tienen nada que ver con las traducciones. En ocasiones, durante el proceso de transición de un idioma a otro, la esencia del libro o pequeños detalles que le hacen mágico se pierden.
Aunque no conozco la edición original de 'Otra vez' he tenido la oportunidad de ver otras ediciones como la portuguesa. En ella, el libro viene con una sobrecubierta o guardapolvo (como querais llamarlo) que al quitarla descubrimos que el libro que estamos leyendo es el mismo que que le está contando la madre a su pequeño en la historia.

New weaning recipes?! 🍊🍐🍎🐻 Love this fun, simple-but-utterly-effective read from Emily Gravett! 👏🏼 •  It's pretty good fun trying out new food combinations on Ada, she's not a very fussy eater thank goodness. This morning she had apple, strawberry, mango and baby rice. 😋Is it weird that baby food tastes delicious to me?! And that is it strangely satisfying puréeing things?! #babyweaning #babyweaningfood #weaning #pureed #adarecommends #booksforbabies #orangeapplepear #libraryhaul

Meerkat Mail, by @emily_gravett & published by @macmillankidsuk is a perfect book for any child who has those occasional moments of thinking they’d be better off living somewhere else... 😉 (we’ve found this book is ideal for the 4 year old plus kid, speaking from experience that is 😂😂😂) Reasons we ❤️ this book: 
1/ The 7 giant postcard flaps are amazing! 
See photos for examples. This book is SO much fun - the production of it is A+. Each family member Sunny the Meerkat visits includes a postcard which is a lift-up-flap and has a message to his family about his experience. 
2/ The moral of the story is a handy one to teach children!
Many kids start thinking the grass is greener at some stage in life, whether it's at a friends house, Nanny’s house, their cousins house etc... Sunny the meerkat gets sick of living in the kalahari desert with his very large family, where it’s too hot and his family isn't big on personal space... so, he decides to set off on a solo adventure and learns pretty quickly that there’s no place like home! 
3/ The illustrations are gorgeous. 
Emily Gravett is an illustrative genius. One of my all time favourites. The drawings are so engaging and clever. This book will appeal to both adult and child! 
Please buy this book. You won't be disappointed. It's so special and the lift up flaps make you want to pick it up over and over. And over again. 
A perfect present for a 4+ year old. 
Link to purchase in bio.

Visited @cowlingandwilcox to pick up a sketch book and full range of pencils. J has been inspired to draw even more. Can't wait to see the results. She wonders if she should colour this in?  Thoughts? #sketch #dailydoodle #drawing #art #kidsdraw #kidsfun #art #pencils #youngtalent #childrensart

Costa and I spoke a great length about books we wanted to read to our children and about our favourite authors and books that not only entertained us but taught us about life. 
NM loves to read and already has her favourite books for this stage of her life. She loves to stack her books around her and page through them. I think her dad would have enjoyed both Emily Gravett and Jane Foster's books for children. Each unique in their style of illustration and each book wonderfully made. @janefosterdesigns @emily_gravett
