Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a thing for children’s picture books. I often find myself deeply moved by the beautiful meaning, humour, wiseness, generosity of these treasures and have a special spot for beautiful illustrations.
Fortunately for me, Miss 4 and 3/4s loves them too and we spend many blissful hours getting our snuggle on and exploring these worlds together.
At the moment we are LOVING “Just Being Audrey” by Margaret Cardillo. The story takes you from Audrey’s childhood and details the key moments that made her, her. It really captures her beautiful spirit, free heart, whimsical character and her kindness.
“Just Being Audrey” is made so much more fabulous due to the magic of by one of my favourite children’s illustrators, the divinest Julia Denos, who is unbelievably talented and special. You can find out more about her on her blog http://www.thecinnamonrabbit.blogspot.com
Here’s the book trailer (oh how I heart a book trailer too):
This book has now sent us on an Audrey-a-thon – and we have added to this by watching her films – so far we have watched Sabrina and Roman Holiday…. She is really so lovely.
I’d love to hear about your special books: What’s your favourite book? (note: mine is Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by a million miles) What are you reading at the moment? What is your child’s favourite read?
More reviews to come soon x
Happy Easter everyone.
