This continues to be a hugely challenging and unusual time for everyone – and for many of us, especially those of us staying inside at home with young children, books and reading are more important now than ever.
In case you missed it, we shared all of the free resources (including a free picture book every day, a free audiobook every week, a free nature poem of the day, free content on a daily inspirational figure from history, and lots of free activity sheets and material for schools) that we’ve made available here.
And we are determined to continue supporting bookshops, schools, libraries, parents and carers of children, and all of our authors and illustrators, in as many ways as we can – and today, we’re incredibly proud to share the new books that we’re publishing this month. You may not be able to find these books in all of the places from which you might normally be able to buy them, but you can still order all of them online from Waterstones and Amazon, as well as directly from us.
Here’s a look at all of the fantastic news books out in April from Nosy Crow – between the wonderful novelty and board books for babies, beautiful picture books, brilliant fiction and exciting and accessible non-fiction, there’s something this month for everyone.
