Your Skye books are charming and should appeal to a wide range of children(2-12 years?)The illustrations are attractive and engaging and could form the basis for much discussion, especially with the very young.

The size, format, and language are clear and precise – each page is not overloaded with too much information but leaves room for the reader’s elaboration and prediction skills.The story contents and situations are well related to a child’s view of the world. Well done Hilary – – Keep going.

Hi Hilary. I was in St. George’s market with my husband early on Sunday when we came across your stall selling your books. I bought skye learns to swim. My son is 7 years old and absolutely loved your book. I haven’t seen him as excited reading a book in a long time. He loved finding the frog on each page!!
