DELIGHTFUL KIDS BOOKS | JENNIFER HIGGIE BLOG TOUR | 'There's Not One' (****)

Hello readers, and happy Thursday! Today I am very excited to welcome you to another children's books feature, and today just so happens to coincide with a blog tour I am part of today, for the wonderful Jennifer Higgie's children's picture book There's Not One!


I was very kindly sent There's Not One by Scribe Publishing in exchange for an honest review :)

Today is the perfect day to feature this book on my children's book feature, as today is the publication date - so if you like the sound of it, pop online or to your nearest bookshop to grab a copy for your littles <3

There's Not One is a wonderfully artistic, beautifully curated picture book that celebrates and wonders at the phenomenon that is the diversity of our world, and the indescribable vastness of it! It is a lovely book that couples counting with cheerful creativity, and I am sure that any child age 0-5 years would adore it.

Intrigued? Check out the blurb here...


This joyous debut from well-known writer and editor Jennifer Higgie (Frieze Magazine) celebrates both the individual and the diversity of the world around us. In kaleidoscopic colour, Higgie takes young readers on a journey from some of life’s most important things (baked beans!) to some of life’s biggest wonders (stars!). The perfect early picture book for budding art lovers! 

This book includes the most important parts of any children's book - wonderfully designed pages filled with colours, shapes, numbers and lovely messages such as 'there is only one you' which makes for an interactive and engaging reading experience. While you read the pages your baby or toddler can point out the numbers or the shapes and delight at the gorgeous illustrations. 

In this sometimes horrific and hurtful world, it's important to remind young children that diversity and individuality is vital in maintaining a beautiful world. This is shown in the book by the joyful collage illustrations - and the final message which is 'we're all in this together!' affirms the exuberant nature of this book. The images are very Matisse-like in style and would be ideal for any children interested in art.

The book itself is also very well-made and the pages themselves as well as the front cover are incredibly luxurious - ideal for allowing children to turn the pages for themselves!

As you can tell I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and I'm sure your little one would love it too. There's Not One is perfect for bedtime reading, which will also teach your child about numbers, colours and shapes.

Make sure you check out the other spots on the blog tour!
