Emily Green’s Garden is a beautiful example of a child opening adult’s eyes to curiosity, newness and using their imagination. The contrast of their very perfect beginnings to letting go creatively saw faces that beamed with an infectious joy and the community bustling on the streets, playing happily.
Sounds Magic explores creativity and music, bringing puppets to life as they go on their musical adventure.
Each time I meet an author I am really inspired by their creativity and talent. What inspires me most about Judith is that she clearly gets great joy from her work, and this is evident when she talks about it and shares it with others.
This book teaches children how to be kind to animals demonstrates kindness and love, shows how it is important for everyone to be loved and cared for, and how to give back to the community.
if we were
deep in the jungle
where butterflies drift
and jaguars prowl
where parakeets squawk
and wild monkeys howl…
I find this book particularly endearing and recognise that it would make a lovely one on one story session with a children and a good way to celebrate Christmas.
