A Sheepdog Called Sky

Some books are little treasures, and this is one of those where I felt transported back to when I was a child. I felt familiar with the story and felt comfortable that the content is safe for an 8 year old to read.  There are a lot of books about magic, goblins and elves for young children, but in my role as a Librarian parents often ask me for books that don’t have those components. For those types of requests this book is a perfect fit.

They’re Bright, Familiar and Children Love Them!

There is a children’s picture book author whose books stand out on the book shelves, literally, because they are bright and colourful.  Lucy Cousins books are familiar to children, especially the Maisy Books.

Personally I have never been the biggest fan of Maisy, however when this book jumped out at me…the bright colours and size largely responsible, I saw Maisy and the story she had to tell from a completely new perspective. So, today’s post is me sharing with you why this book has changed my view.
