The Boy On The Bench

The playground is packed with children playing, but Tom is sitting on a bench with his dad. He's just not sure he's brave enough to join in. He can't see a space for himself anywhere in the playground. Not on the slide, or on the roundabout or on the swings. But when a little girl loses her teddy, will Tom have the courage to help? Gabriel Alborozo's warm, friendly illustrations perfectly bring to life this gentle, empathetic story about overcoming fears and being yourself.

The Buddy Bench

The Buddy Bench

Having seen what being left out is like, children become agents of change, convincing their teacher to let them build a buddy bench. A school playground can be a solitary place for a kid without playmates; in one survey, 80 percent of 8- to 10-year-old respondents described being lonely at some point during a school day. Patty Brozo’s cast of kids brings a playground to raucous life, and Mike Deas’s illustrations invest their games with imaginary planes to fly, dragons to tame, and elephants to ride. And these kids match their imaginations with empathy, identifying and swooping up the lonely among them. Buddy benches are appearing in schoolyards around the country. Introduced from Germany in 2014, the concept is simple: When a child sits on the bench, it’s a signal to other kids to ask him or her to play.

King Of The Bench No Fear

King Of The Bench No Fear

From the nationally syndicated cartoonist of “In the Bleachers” comes a new, highly illustrated middle grade series about Steve, who plays the same position in every sport: bench-warmer. Perfect for fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Timmy Failure, King of the Bench is an ode to teammates, underdogs, and bench-warmers everywhere. Steve is King of the Bench. No brag. It’s just a fact. But this year, Steve and his friends are excited to try out for the Spiro T. Agnew Middle School baseball team. The only problem is, after watching another player get beaned by a fastball, Steve has developed a serious case of bean-o-phobia—the fear of getting hit by a pitch. If Steve ever wants to get off the bench and get in the game, he’s going to have to muster up some courage, and fast. Oh, and if you’re wondering why Steve would write a book and tell total strangers all about the humiliating phobia that almost ruined his first year on the baseball team? Duh. It’s pretty much a rule that you spill your guts when you write a book about yourself.

Park Bench

Park Bench

With his masterful illustration style, bestselling French creator-storyteller Chabouté (Alone, Moby-Dick) explores community through a common, often ignored object: the park bench. From its creation, to its witness to the fresh ardor of lovers, the drudgery of businessmen, the various hopes of the many who enter its orbit, the park bench weathers all seasons. Strangers meet at it for the first time. Paramours carve their initials into it. Old friends sit and chat upon it for hours. Others ignore the bench, or (attempt to) sleep on it at night, or simply anchor themselves on it and absorb the ebb and flow of the area and its people. Christophe Chabouté’s mastery of the visual medium turns this simple object into a thought-provoking and gorgeously wrought meditation on time, desire, and the life of communities all across the planet. This could be a bench in my hometown or yours—the people in this little drama are very much those we already recognize.

Thank Goodness For Bob

Thank Goodness For Bob

Max is a child who worries. A lot. He worries about being bitten by spiders, abducted by aliens, or sometimes just that people don't like him enough. Soon it feels like his worries might take over the world! Thank goodness for Bob the dog, who shows Max that the best way to deal with worries is to share them with a friend. Told with sensitivity and a sense of fun, this relatable story encourages empathy and illustrates the importance of talking about worries. Stress and anxiety amongst children is a growing problem and this warm-hearted picture book provides a much-needed aid to help parents calm their children's worries. Much like Benji Davies' Grandad's Island, this story tackles a sensitive issue with a lightness of touch, allowing parents to approach a difficult topic through the comfort of a fun story. Gabriel Alborozo's illustrations brilliantly capture family life and his appealing artwork injects some gentle humour into situations that will be familiar to many families. A modern take on Virginia Ironside and Frank Rodgers' The Huge Bag of Worries, Carol McLeod and Katherine Martin's Fill a Bucket and Amanda McCardie's A Book of Feelings, this is the perfect calming bedtime read for children ages 3 years and up. Praise for Gabriel Alborozo's The Colour Thief - 'With minimal text, simple drawings and an explosion of colours, this is an absolutely delightful book to share' - Irish Examiner
