well not quite on the theme but david williams books - the boy in the dress about accepting people for who they are

That looks like a great book. It's not exactly what I am looking for right now but I have added it to my wish list!

It depends on the child's age. There are loads of them.

It's for a 6 year old with good comprehension skills but also happy to read/be read book for pre-schoolers too.

Aesop's fables are very good. I'll have a think for you though as there really is loads.

That would be great, thank you.

Beautiful oops. Part board book, that kind of size about turning mistakes like ink blots into beautiful things. Fab!

Try "Just like You"? Different animals excel at different things & the question is put 'what are you good at mum?'

You should find a book called the chocolate biscuit tree - about a badger who finds a chocolate biscuit left over from a picnic and doesn't want to share it with his other friends in the wood. Instead he buries it in the hope that it will grow a whole crop of biscuits for him to eat. When he loses it, his friends share their nuts, berries etc with him. I love this book. Can't remember the author.

The Boy Who Grew Flowers might suit her/him, kind of quirky but a nice story.
