“Fun, friendship and kindness, hallmark the Celestine and the Hare series which are perfect for 3 – 5 year old’s. Children will love the little felt animals in the Celestine and the Hare tribe and the activities at the end of each book. Super sweet and filled with many kind thoughts and actions, it models sharing and putting others before yourself sometimes.” Brightstar Bedtime Stories
"We’ve never found a book so small that is so warm and so heartbreakingly profound. The creatures in the delightful little tribe have lives that revolve around the tiny pleasures that the world can offer – from having honey made by bees in the garden, to the joy of making a new friend and giving them the warm home that they need. With so many awful things in the world, and so much hate, these books are about the huge power of simple kindness. If the next generation grows up knowing these stories, then there is hope." Kenilworth Books
"My children adored this story. And I think they enjoyed the lack of cynicism and the simple message about the joy of generosity. It also inspired us to photograph our own teddies and toys as a way of making up our own stories." Gill Lewis, Children's Author
