HarperCollins Spring Storytime Packs

Spring storytime bundle

HarperCollins Children’s Books are celebrating the arrival of Spring with a gorgeous pack of picture books and activities for little ones featuring eggs, bunnies and tadpoles from an array of amazing picture book creators!

Follow Tad, the littlest almost-a-frog in the whole wide pond, in the new picture book from Benji Davies, creator of The Storm Whale and Grandad’s Island.
Meet the formidable Imelda and her favourite soft toy, Bunny Wunny, in Emma Chichester Clark’s wickedly funny modern cautionary tale.
Discover the world of the Dinosaur Juniors in Happy Hatchday from the award-winning Rob Biddulph – the first in a series of brilliantly bright, bold picture books dealing with the moments that every pre-schooler faces.
And go on a quest to find berries with Mini Rabbit, hero of John Bond’s utterly charming debut picture book, shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize .

To celebrate these beautiful books, HarperCollins Children’s Books have created these fantastic downloadable resources.

We can’t wait to hear about how you are celebrating. Keep us updated by sharing any news and photos via Twitter using #HCCBSpringStorytime @ReadingAgency and @HarperCollinsCh.

And we also love it when you buy yourself or someone else a brand new book from a high street bookshop. We also know that buying online is quick and convenient...
