Aunt Concertina and her Niece Evalina Paula Green, illus Michael Hight, Random House
Every Friday I will post some of the things children send me from around New Zealand.
Today I am reading a book that is dear to my heart as it comes from the bedtime stories I told my daughters Georgia and Estelle when they were little. And Michael Hight, my partner, did the gorgeous artwork. You can see two of the paintings on my study wall. And yes! I do have loads of books – these are all poetry. I will show you some of my favourites over the next month or so.
This is the perfect book when we are staying at home becuase it takes us all over the world! Sit back and listen (around 20 minutes).
Today’s challenge is to think of somewhere else a superlative place Evalina might have gone and do a drawing, or even a painting, and some words to go with it. Then email it to me if you like. I will email you back and I will post some on a Friday.
There are no deadlines – you just send when you feel like it and see what I pick to post on Fridays.
