Talk with Me! and Walk with Me! Written by Stella Blackstone and illustrated Caroline Mockford

Barefoot Books, boardbooks, £5.99 each

In Talk with Me!, join children from across the world and learn about the different noises animals make, from snapping to growling to squawking. These animals are a great way to introduce young children to different cultures and they will love discovering who's talking to them behind the flaps.

In Walk with Me!, meet five lively children and lots of animals from around the world to discover how different animals walk, hop, clop, slide and glide, all from behind the flaps. Both these books have rhythm, pace and cheerful illustrations.

- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star - A bedtime book of lullabies

Little Tiger Press, paperback, £5.99

- Hard at Work and On the Go by Ant Parker

Kingfisher, boardbook, £4.99 each

The new editions of these old favourites are a reminder that young children deserve high-quality books in every generation.

Hard at Work covers diggers, trucks and the like, while On the Go includes trains and boats and planes.
