Voices in the park
Good quality Children’s Literature has many layers. Voices in The Park by Anthony Browne, is the same outing to the park viewed from four different characters in the story. Four different perspectives and social commentaries in the sub-text. Details in the illustrations and font styles add to this thought-provoking book.
Jenny Angel by Margaret Wild, illustrated by Anne Spudvilas, shows the courage of those who face a battle with a terminal disease, directly and indirectly. To be used carefully as it evokes such raw emotions, but shows the beauty of love, strong relationships, compassion and honesty in the face of death.
Today we have NO PLANS
Take some time to wind down over the holidays. This story, about hectic lives and the need to slow the pace, by Jane Godwin and Anna Walker, is a great reminder of the need to dream, imagine and relax.
