Book Review: Paper Planes by Jim Helmore and Richard Jones

29th May 2019 No Comments

Paper Planes is a story about friendship, but one which is somehow full of raw emotion. It captures exactly those feelings when your friend moves away and you miss them but also reinforces that they’re still there and you can still do things together.

This is a wonderful book for children going through these sorts of issues. Recently my seven year olds friend moved schools and he misses his friend very much. I’ve used this book to help explain that he can still be friends they just need to change their relationship a little.

The illustrations work exceptionally well and are so well pitched to the style of writing that the book feels like a work of art. This doesn’t surprise me as the author and illustrator also produced The Snow Lion which was also fantastic book.
