Dare by Lorna Gutierrez and illustrated by Polly Noakes

Dare to dream BIG... and help others speak out for what is right. An inspirational picture book full of messages of empowerment, encouragement and of daring to be the best person you can be.

'Dare to speak out when others won't.'

'Dare to sing and dare to dance'

'Dare to be a shining light'

They sound simple messages, but that is only if you live in a society that allows children to be brave, or live in a family which allows confidence. and love.

Dare, is full of positive images and will be a great book to have at home, nursery and at school, it will provoke many conversations. A picture book full of message and inspiration.

The author, Lorna Gutierrez is from America and enjoys her visits to London and Tiny Owl, the publishers, who have an incredible diverse book list for children.

The illustrator, Polly Noakes whose love of illustration started a long time ago at Cambridge School of Art where she recently returned and completed the MA in Children's Book Illustration. Her images are full of character, we love the faces of the cats and dogs especially.

Dare is a great favourite already with me, just buy  the book and find out, that's a recommendation for anyone, young and older.
