One great way to do this is with this powerful book.

Unicorn Academy- Sophia and Rainbow
Julia Sykes (Ages 5+)
School isn’t always the most fun place to be, but imagine heading to a school where you can get to meet your very own unicorn? We know we would enjoy that! If you love the idea of this magical approach to learning, then it makes sense to try out the Unicorn Academy books. One of the newest ones is Sophie and Rainbow. Two friends that get to go on their first ever adventure after finding something sinister going on at the magical lake.
The Squirrels Who Squabbled
Rachel Bright (Preschool)
We all know that sharing isn’t always easy. Particularly if you are a greedy little squirrel. This rhyming tale tells the story of two squirrels who find out why it is important to share, and just how best to do it. Perfectly illustrated and a whole lot of fun. We love the fact that your little one will learn plenty about friendship, whilst also learning that I want doesn’t always mean that you get.
So, whether you have a little girl who could change the world one day, a budding artist who needs a helping hand or perhaps a little one who finds it more than just a little tricky to share, you are sure to find a book that is going to work out perfectly for you to read together.
