As always, all London mums parties are fun fun fun.There was dancing, eating, a wonderful Santa and story time with the gorgeous books from farfarawaybooks.com. I heard George and the Knight and was as mesmerised as all the children around me. The pictures were beautiful and a really sweet story about friends having the courage to help each other.
I later looked through the other books they had and fell in love with the cute looking dog in Sad Tales for Me: A Bidography. But I was lucky to take home Sylvester and the New Year which I immediately loved because of the traditional, gentle drawings, just magic!
I read it with my daughter, now this book has a few sentences in each page written in a bigger font and my daughter has just started bringing reading back home from school, so it is a perfect book for us and perfect timing, I read the smaller font and from time to time she reads a sentence in bigger font. It is a lovely way to share a book.
The story itself also really surprised me, I was expecting another Christmas story since Sylvester looks a little like Santa, I thought it would be another version of the same thing. But no! It is a beautiful story, quite spiritual and a really lovely way to explain the new year, the passing of time and growing old and gives children another thing to look forward to during the Christmas holidays.
Thank you so much for my book! We will treasure it years to come and the story of Sylverster will now be part of our Christmas repertoire.
!Feliz Navidad! !Próspero Año Nuevo!
