Announcing the arrival of two new titles COMING SOON!
Big Sister & Little Sister and I Did It!
And later Grandpa’s Den and A Snowy Kiwi Christmas.
This is a review for “I Did It!”
I really like the story too, great for our children this one: giving a great responsibility message to them. Using the teaching virtues of responsibility, helpfulness, respect and caring as examples would make a great series of short books, especially for the 2 to 4 year olds. Children only learn these virtues by learning about examples of what they look like. Cushla showed responsibility in this story, respect is something that children need to be reminded of constantly but they don’t know what the word means until somebody compliments them for using it: then they have something to hang the word on to, if you know what I mean. Resilience and Empathy are, I believe, the two most important virtues for children to learn. I see so many people acting badly through lack of empathy!
Each year I set up a stall to promote my picture books – lovely memories to keep of Ambury Park Farm with stories of Roger the Rooster and The Spirit of Cameron.
Although Ambury Park Farm Day 2014 had four seasons in one day, rain, wind, cold weather then the sun came out. The public still ventured out and visited in their thousands. I sold lots of books including my anthologies of SHORT STORIES.
I am very happy to announce that my children’s book Roger the Rooster of Ambury Park Farm, was chosen by The Royal New Zealand Institute for the Blind to be formatted into Braille for blind children to enjoy reading.
Roger the Rooster was enjoying an early morning walk in Ambury Park Farm when he heard a cry for help! Where was it coming from? Would he find who was in trouble and save him?
“Roger the Rooster of Ambury Park Farm” is a children’s book that would would appeal to young pre-schoolers who may or may not have had the pleasure of visiting Ambury Farm in Mangere Bridge in Auckland, New Zealand.
I have been meaning to forward you this photo of my class with your book and some gorgeous roosters we made from the feathers of a feather duster! Thank you for your book, the children loved it and I have now donated it to the AIS Saigon school library for all to enjoy. I look forward to your next book!! Jodi Swan
