Open Book

A great page turn can be achieved by using any combination of delicious writing, illustration, and design. It’s what teases and entices a reader to see what comes next. Though the term is most commonly used with picture books, we believe the concept applies on a broad spectrum. No matter the style or genre, here at Page Turn Press, we aim to offer quality books for all ages that will pull you in and never let go. Tales that will delight, enthral, and inspire... and, of course, keep those pages turning.

THE BIG OL' BIKE

This book is absolutely beautiful—it combines such loveable characters with important life lessons, creating essential reading for kids... I loved how the story focuses on a range of topics, from friendship and family bonds to the bravery and courage of one character as he stands up for himself. The book also teaches about appreciating the sentimental value of things, which was one of my favourite parts! This story is genuinely one of the most heartwarming children’s books I’ve come across...

THE BIG OL' BIKE

The Big Ol’ Bike brought back sweet memories of my old bike, a little nostalgic, and I loved it. The overall message is about bullying and the loving relationship between family, neighbors, and best friends. Bullying is a tough subject for any child to endure and talk about, but reading The Big Ol’ Bike parents can read along and help their child learn some positive strategies to overcome the ugliness of bullying. Great read, fun adventures, the author’s illustrations enhanced the reading experience. 

THE BIG OL' BIKE

 

Wow, oh wow, did this book touch my heart in so many ways. I was bullied at school and books like this help children so much, I can’t praise it enough… I would absolutely love to see this book in all schools and read as learning material to help children understand about bullying, feelings, being kind etc.. It’s so important as many children feel alone when being bullied... This book is inspirational, heart-warming, engaging, educational, poignant and highly compelling."
