Be Wild, Little One! What a glorious book this is! The text advises a small child to go outside and 'be wild'. It suggests making the world your playground; climbing trees, swimming in the ocean, chasing storms, digging for treasure... All accompanied by the most gorgeous, richly coloured illustrations of these marvellous games.

The theme of the book is very much about encouraging active and imaginative play outdoors which makes you tired, hot, dirty and immensely satisfied with how you've spent your time by at the end of the day. This book would be perfect for any situation; a lovely birthday present for a 4, 5 or 6 year old or a marvellous addition to a classroom or school library. It encapsulates what we want for all our children- the opportunity to 'be wild'.
