With its six multicultural rhyming books, Happy Lane reading, writing & colourings series is the perfect children’s gift for someone special in your life. Today’s ethnic diversity means that it is important for children to read books that portray a true reflection of our society, a world filled with individuality in the shape of sizes, beliefs and shades. The inclusive Happy Lane series takes place in a land inhabited by six children from all over the world where their homes and landscape are made out of food and natural materials. The use of rhyme in the story will appeal to even the youngest readers, whilst the gorgeously rich drawings mean children can discover new detail each time they read the book. Colour and humour, added to the emotions conveyed within each illustration, together generate a sense of wellbeing, reinforcing the reader's warm feelings towards the characters’ honesty and compassion. Using fun rhyming stories, each book introduces 2 to 5 years old kids to topical concepts such as tolerance and kindness towards others as well as respect of the environment and the importance of recycling.
