By Mary-An

What a Wonderful World This Can Be is a ground-breaking picture book about how small acts can have big consequences. Author Mary-An tackles large topics like sustainability, bullying, and poverty, as well as incredibly heart-melting themes of kindness, bravery, and persistence. 

In this book, a little girl wonders at the wonderful world that is all around her. Have you ever wondered at the world? It's an amazing place! But there are some things that make us sad... and what can we do about them?

"One thing at a time. That's what we do.
One piece of rubbish picked out of the sea.
One sandwich for someone in some kind of need.
But please don't get tired, that just won't do.
For this world is a wonder and, my dear, so are you.

Beautiful, touching book

This is a gorgeously illustrated (and written) book with an important lesson - not just for children, but everyone, and especially in these tough times.

Let's all keep doing one thing. Thank you, Mary-An, for the encouragement. I've bought copies for all the kids in my life.

Brilliant Book

We thouroughly enjoyed this book. The pictures are stunning, captivating and intriguing. They capture the profound, but simply put message of the book really well. My boys enjoy the humour and rhyme too.
