Just Like Me
Such a wonderful book and written in an incredibly sensitive way to tell the story of a real life issue that effects so many people and families.
This is a BEAUTIFUL book in every sense of the term. The illustrations are gorgeous with lots of little details to discover and talk about (with a few that are really special - I love the big burley dad folding little undies … the hours that I’ve done that myself … lol!). The story is one that features a great twist and message. My little girls ask for this book at bedtime all the time … take their word for it: this is a great story!
Was great book with a lovely message, loved this.
A beautiful story about being kind
Watermelon Pip is a beautifully written story with such an important message and WOW - those illustrations! A worthy addition to any book shelf!
My little Farm girl almost Miss 4 has loved this book. And has requested it over and over... Her mother has noted this is her current "go to everyday " book...and they found a watermelon growing in their garden....Mum has her own review...So many seed activities..and healthy food discussions have arisen and esp the Sharing for all...Love these Books...

I bought it for my granddaughter and I have also recorded the story for her to listen to my voice while she turns the pages. I would like to be with her but she lives far away. I loved the story, I’m sure she will too.
Beautiful book appropriate for these times a gift for my daughter teaching in the UK
An important issue addressed.
I loved this gorgeous book, not only is it beautifully illustrated but the message behind it is so important. I think it is such a great way to communicate the importance of doing our best to look after the world, for the sake of not only ourselves but the animals and their environment. Highly recommend a read!
Fantastic book and illustrations. My granddaughters loved it.
So wonderful to use animals to get a very special message across. My Great grandchildren
Loved the story and wonderful pictures. Their ages are 7 and 9
My grand daughter loves this book and each time I go over there she wants me to read it to her. Beautiful pictures and story
My boy loves the colours of the book and flipping through the pages . He loved PIP and was sad when she had no watermelon and happy when she had lots and was sharing
