Me: A Compendium is a fun fill-in journal by Wee Society for kids to capture what makes them unique. They are asked to draw or write lots of things about them like: what their hair looks like, how tall they are, what their band name would be and more.
We think the book is best for primary school children. Your kids might fill it all in on one day or complete it a page at a time.
You can buy Me: A Compendium online from Fishpond

"The Book with a Hole" by Herve Tullet blasts a hole through the middle of the book itself. It's full of fun drawings and inventive ideas.
Sometimes the Hole is an eye the reader can look through, sometimes it is a mouth and the reader's fingers make the teeth. The next minute it is a plate (with food drawn by the reader on a sheet of paper behind the book), an obstacle to jump across or a saucepan. It's crazy. It's a Book with a Hole.
The book is best for ages 3 to 8 years old. You can buy it online from Book Depository
