The Copper Tree

The Copper Tree Class

The Copper Tree Class is a series of books following the lives of a small group of children and the lives of those around them. The creators, Hilary Robinson and Mandy Stanley, have addressed critical topics and themes that affect small children, such as death, relationships with the elderly, adoption, child caregivers and bullying and gently interwoven those strands into accessible and charming picturebooks.

A book to help explain death to a child

We think it is excellent for pre-schools and infant schools and the only book we know of that addresses the death of a teacher.

Christmas Surprise

Hilary Robinson writes ground breaking picture books that deal with topical issues in a very sensitive way. There are very few books aimed at this age group which treat these issues.

Christmas Surprise

This is a thoughtful story about a class of young children who are invited to a local care home to help the elderly residents get ready for Christmas. Vibrant and colourful pictures are in tune with the words and the children experience that there is much more to this celebration than money can buy.
