Brambly Hedge

Brambly Hedge Baby Book: "This beautiful book is the perfect gift for parents-to-be. There are fill-in sections for every stage of the new-born baby's arrival into the world, from pages on what time the baby was born and what he or she weighed, to spaces later in the book for photos and the baby's hands and footprints. The book is illustrated throughout with Jill Barklem's wonderfully observed paintings from her Brambly Hedge books, and there are appropriate quotes on every page from Poppy's Babies."
Doesn't this book look so sweet and adorable?
I just came across it as I was searching for the Brambly Hedge books on fishpond. I knew about the sories of the four seasons but I didn't realise there were so many other stories and other products related to the series.
Why I got started on all of this was that I bought this sweet little Brambly Hedge tin at the Riccarton Market today.

I always loved these stories as a child. I think I was especially drawn to the miniature aspect of it and I loved studying the detail in the illustrations. I'm looking forward to introducing the girls to the world of Brambly Hedge and hopefully they will love it as much as I do!


  1. I love Brambly Hedge! I've got the Winter book from when I was little and can't wait to read it to my girls. The detail in the illustrations is stunning and I loved poring over the pictures as a child. That tin is so cute and I love the baby book too, am going to check it out on fishpond now!

  2. Oh my probably realise, from the pictures on my blog, that Brambley Hedge was and still is one of my all time favourite childhood series of story books.....I would have loved to have that baby book when my children were born.......
