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.
Louis Sachar holes
What an incredible tale of hope and resilience. This young adult novel, Holes by Louis Sachar, is beautifully written and crafted with 2 stories cleverly linked. So many engaging details. Highly recommended!
Separation anxiety is common at this time of year with lots of children starting school or child care and experiencing new feelings of anxiety.
Owl Babies by Martin Waddell is a sensitive depiction of separation seen from both sides. The child, unsure of why their parent or carer is away from them, and the adult going about their tasks of caring for their young, knowing they will be back soon. Patrick Benson’s beautiful illustrations add so much depth to this story.
