Women Writers Series from the British Library

I'm in love with this shot by @bogbilleder⁠ of the Women Writers Series from the British Library!⁠

This is a curated collection of forgotten works by early to mid-century women writers highlighting fiction from the 1910s to the 1960s, offering escapism, popular appeal and plenty of period detail to amuse, surprise, and inform. Each work sees fictional heroines challenge the attitudes of their time and highlight women’s experience inside and outside the home.⁠

My Book of Animal Opposites

Big or small? Loud or quiet? Opposites can be found everywhere in the animal kingdom!

This large-format board book introduces opposites to children in a very interesting way. Comparing hundreds of animals, the book shows beasts that like the cold and those that like the heat, animals that swim and animals that fly, tiny animals and huge ones, quiet creatures vs. loud creatures, grown animals and baby animals! The fun never ends!

My First Book of Growing Food

Introducing Terra Babies at Home, a new board book series that presents plants, animals, and the environment to early readers from the intimacy of their home and helps them connect to the natural world.

My First Book of Growing Food is a beautiful introduction for babies and toddlers to the benefits of growing food, helping them to develop a connection with the natural world. Like other titles in the earth-friendly series Terra Babies at Home, this book is made with FSC materials and nontoxic inks, and it is recyclable.

The Reverse Coloring Book

The book has the colors, you draw the lines: the creative possibilities are endless!

Reverse coloring is a totally new idea in creativity and mindfulness: so simple, and so profoundly satisfying. Artist Kendra Norton created these beautiful and whimsical unfinished watercolors to provide a gentle visual guide for your own creativity and exploration.

Small Pleasures

In the best tradition of Tessa Hadley, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Ann Patchett--an astonishing, keenly observed period piece about an ordinary British woman in the 1950s whose dutiful life takes a sudden turn into a pitched battle between propriety and unexpected passion.
