Tiny Owl’s summer reading list

Summer has begun. Days are long and our children need to have quality plans. Children need entertainment, to play, to learn, and most important of all for them is to read. Reading is most important, it is most beneficial to learn it as early as possible. We would encourage parents to read for their children and ask them to read too -or if they can’t read yet- look at the boks in turn. This can help them get used to books, lifelong companions as they are. Books are life-changing, if we learn how to read and what to read. Every summer we introduce a new package for parents. This package includes several diverse, high quality picturebooks, the morales, beautiful stories and artistic illustrations of which your children will never forget. This summer, we plan to introduce the following books:

 

A Rainbow in My Pocket

A Rainbow in My Pocket

A Rainbow in My Pocket
How can you put a rainbow in your pocket? Seemingly the little child in this book has an answer to what sounds like a riddle and it’s one she shares with readers in her poetic outpourings – her musings, preoccupations and daydreams.
Excuse me, /Little ant,/Could you tell me/Which school this is,/Where you queue in such a neat line?’ she asks one day.
The meaning of this beautiful story is hard to chase down – just like a rainbow! But it expresses something of the nature of keeping your mind free; of how the thoughts of children rush in and out of their minds with breathless rapidity; and how their wishes for themselves and the world around them are simple and tender, and should be cherished.

The Orange House

The Orange House

The orange house

The Orange House has another lovely message to deliver to young children; one of friendship. It also explores the importance of standing up for others. Its third message is about the necessity of the cultural inheritance for increasing the quality of life. The Orange House is an old house that faces being demolished. It’s lovely to see the others houses protect the Orange House and it’s a gentle way to talk to young children about friendships and protecting those we care about.

Will & Nill

Will & Nill

Will & Nill
Will and Nill is a beautifully illustrated story about both the nature of cats and the nature of humans. Told with wit and affection, it explores whether you should accepting what you’re given (or not given). And sometimes how, by just deciding to have some fun and making a little effort, you can find what you wanted in unexpected places.

This fable playfully demonstrates that making just a little effort can make a big difference. There are probably elements of both Nill and Will in all of us, but unexpected good fortune seldom comes to those who do nothing: serendipity seems to favour those that have a bit of get up and go.

The Jackal Who Thought He Was a Peacock

The Jackal Who Thought He Was a Peacock

The Jackal Who Thought He Was A Peacock
Are you a fan of Rumi? Rumi is the great Persian poet from 13th century. We have published two of his famous fables. The Jackal Who Thought He Was A Peacock is the second one with stunning illustrations.
The jackal has never been the same since he saw the peacocks. Now he looks at his grey and brown fur and thinks how boring he looks. He wonders how he can change it to be beautiful and dazzling like the peacocks. He’s always collecting colourful things to stick on his fur but nothing seems to work.

Then he hatches a clever plan that will once and for all turn him into the brightest, most brilliant jackal, just like the peacocks. His jackal friends look on and shake their heads.

We would also like to remind you of our three bestsellers titles from the last year. These are brilliant too:

 

The Little Black Fish

The Little Black Fish

The Little Black Fish

This is a beautiful and compelling book with strong and important allegorical messages. Written in the 60s by noted Iranian social critic, teacher and author Samad Behrangi. The book has stunning, atmospheric illustrations by award-winning illustrator Farshid Mesghali.

Little Black Fish may be small, but he has big questions and a determination to find answers to them. While his fellow fish are too scared to do anything different from their set routine, Little Black Fish swims over the edge of the pool, into the stream and river which will show him much more of the world. He meets wonders and adventures, dangers and beauty. He makes it all the way to the sea, and finds his answers. Even though he doesn t survive to tell his own story, here it is being told to another generation, and the inspiration of it is passed on.

When I Coloured-in the World

When I Coloured-in the World

When I Coloured in the World

This is a book of profound simplicity. A child uses crayons to colour and change the world, making it kinder, more hopeful place. Boredom gives way to play, darkness to light, drought to rain, crying to laughter, and much more. A beautiful book with a sparse poetic text, but a deep and positive message.

The Parrot and the Merchant

The Parrot and the Merchant

The Parrot and the Merchant

The Parrot and the Merchant is a famous fable of true love and freedom written by thirteenth century Persian poet and philosopher, Rumi, which has lived in the hearts and minds of Persians of all ages for centuries. Its wildly colourful and magical illustrations by Marjan Vafaian have also added a clever and contemporary twist, transporting it from the ancient to the present, while creating thought-provoking controversy.
