Description

When my mum and/or dad dies, I'll be sure to not put my heart in a bottle and will, instead, accept those feelings of loss and pain. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Oliver Jeffers is a creative, brilliant author that really shows his amazing imagination through his books. After a few failed attempts, and just as he is ready to give up, he learns that sometimes things aren't where, or what, they seem. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites.

Looking forward to getting some more books by this author for my little boy to enjoy when he's a little older.

In 2013, Jeffers illustrated the vinyl cover (a drawing of Nelson Mandela) for the U2 song "Ordinary Love". Oliver Jeffers is known for his award-winning picture books, which have been translated into over 30 languages.

It has wonderful illustrations and text which both hold the attention of the children and from which they can follow independently after listening to the story. The children in my setting loved the story, they are big fans of the nursery rhyme Twinkle twinkle little star, so I knew they would be interested in this. His outstanding talent has been recognised by several high-profile awards, including the Nestlé Children’s Book Prize Gold Award.

His books include How to Catch a Star; Lost and Found , which was the recipient of the prestigious Nestle Children's Book Prize Gold Award in the U.

Personally I wasn't sure about the illustrations, they're quite stylised, but this book has quickly become one of my son's favourites. A story about possibilities and disappointments with a triumphant ending, all of which Jeffers captures through the beautifully expressive changing moods of his little boy.He has made art for Newsweek, The New York Times, United Airlines, TED, Nintendo, and has illustrated a a number of novels. It is an easy, quick read and I’d say Early years children would enjoy it mostly but it would also make a great book for young readers too. He is also well known for his illustration and artwork, and his distinctive paintings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide. I will get through it, and when I do, I'll make sure to treasure every memory I have of them and tell myself that they are not truly dead, because they'll live long in the memories I have of them. It made me realise that while losing someone is, indeed, horrible but shutting yourself away in a protective shell doesn't help the situation nor is it something that person would ever want.

Once there was a boy who loved stars so much that he decided he wanted to catch one of his very own. His distinctive paintings have been exhibited in multiple cities, including the National Portrait Gallery in London and the Brooklyn Museum New York.Lost and Found became Oliver's first book to made into animation by London based Studio AKA, screening on Christmas Eve 2008 on Channel 4 in the UK and on Nickelodeon in the US and Australia. Celebrate the 10th anniversary of How to Catch a Star with this new toddler-friendly board book edition! I could see this as a good way to teach children about rather heavy subjects such as depression, anxiety, loss and mourning.
