Christine Larsenabout this book: If you're a grandparent, a parent, or maybe a special someone who loves to read to the small folk in your life, you will appreciate this book. Here is a celebration of a collection of works by a Grandmother and her Grand-daughter, demonstrating the importance of loving and nurturing each other... and being proud and appreciative of each other's artistic contributions.
In this book there are poems, stories and a newspaper clipping, cards and drawings sent to each other, and delightful photographs of the growing grand-daughter, Cirena. Beautiful messages emerge of the importance of being a 'keeper' of beloved toys and creative works – a concept not so readily embraced by the 'throw away' society we live in today.
Children need to know their simplest creations are some of Life's richest treasures to those who love them, and every adult needs to recognise and embrace the inestimable and proven value of reading to children from the youngest imaginable age.
'Every man who knows how to read has it in his power to magnify himself,
to multiply the ways in which he exists,
to make his life full, significant and interesting.'
— Aldous Huxley
