Say It!

By Charlotte Zolotow
Illustrated by Charlotte Voake

A very sweet, intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship from two incredibly well-respected picture book creators.

A very sweet, intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship from two incredibly well-respected picture book creators. On a golden, windy autumn day, a mother and a daughter go walking among the swirling leaves. As they share little adventures together – seeing a kitten, noticing the leaves' colours, watching the setting sun colouring the clouds – the little girl keeps urging her mother to "Say it." What it is isn't revealed until the last page of the book ... and, it turns out for both mother and daughter, it was being said all along.

  • A very sweet, intimate portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship from two incredibly well-respected picture book creators. Will make a great gift purchase
  • A strong nostalgia factor - originally published in 1980 in the US, this new reissue will resonate with mothers today who grew up hearing this story themselves as children.
  • Featuring gorgeous autumnal illustrations that celebrate nature.
