sit down with a cup of something and read this book from cover to cover.

Katherine Rundell says – “There’s something particular about children’s fiction, that can open up new perspectives for adults. The best children’s fiction “helps us refind things we may not even know we have lost”, taking us back to a time when “new discoveries came daily and when the world was colossal, before the imagination was trimmed and neatened…” There’s also something instructive in reading books that, as Rundell points out, are “specifically written to be read by a section of society without political or economic power”. In an age whose political ructions are the result of widespread frustration at the powerlessness of the many in the face of the few, this recognition of how emboldening and subversive children’s books can be feels important.” – Book Riot -Jamie Canaves
Yes to always making time to read children’s books, no matter how old or wise we may get – or think we are.

an illustrated storybook trail
with pages spread throughout the woods
placed there by the village and the local library
a perfect pairing.
