Love, laugh and most of all be kind.

It is impossible to deny that we are in the midst of dark and worrying times, an overwhelming gloom is trying it’s best to descend upon us but there is a sanctuary and it can be found on our bookshelves, there is so much joy, love, positivity and compassion to be found amidst the pages.  

Lets not wallow in a world filled with fear, intolerance, anger and hatred instead lets celebrate friendship, salute positivity and give our children the freedom to change things for the better and most of all give them hope.

Here is a very small section of some of my favourite books which promote friendship, inspiration and tolerance.
