Shop

Buy a book!

Our founder, Adele Cleaver, has written a book! Children don’t dissolve in the rain is Adele’s memoir about parenthood and playwork.

Published on 1st July 2021, Adele is donating all profits from book sales to Big Blue Play.

There are limited signed copies from @adeleplayworker shop (UK delivery only). This is the most profitable option.

We love local so we encourage you to order a copy from your local indie bookshop using the ISBN 9781898068082 My favourite Brummie gift shop Enki has it online here.

Hive.co.uk donate a % of each purchase to your local bookshop (the webpage often says Out Of Stock because they don’t have it sitting in their warehouse but don’t be mislead… the order is magically fulfilled by the playful book fairies)

Bookshop.org can’t order it for you – disappointing. But these global retailers can: Browns Books, Waterstones, Book Depository, Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Boomerang.com.au etc


“Beautifully written, this book is in itself playful and a wonderful tale of play, adventure and self-discovery.”

Laura Walsh, Head of Play, Great Ormond Street Hospital
