Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review What Matters Most by Emma Dodd questions whether it's important to have lots of friends or just two or three, or whether it's better to be very big or super-small. As well as its beautiful illustrations, it looks like a perfect book to start important conversations about identity and values with children. * Scottish BookTrust * The dark days of winter have a silver lining when you open the pages of this stunning picture book from much-loved author and illustrator Emma Dodd. Dodd, who is amongst the most borrowed authors from UK libraries, adds flashes of silver foil to the gallery of striking pictures in her moving and reassuring story which delivers important life lessons for pre-schoolers. Starring a very BIG horse and a tiny little one, little ones are asked to consider what matters most. Is it being very big or being super-small, is it having lots of stuff or not that much at all? Is it having lots of friends or only two or three, is it talking all the time or making time to hear? Perhaps it's none of those things... because it's always love that matters most. Dodd gently and subtly explores the important themes of identity and acceptance in a book that will strike a chord with parents and encourage children to think about the simple joys in life and the important issues like relationships and family. * Northern Regional Newspapers * A comforting, life-affirming read that celebrates difference and acceptance. The rhyming text makes this book a delight to read aloud to little ones. * Baby Magazine *
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
