I don’t remember being this excited about a book.
I am the biggest fan of Julie Morstad, I have her books and have purchased a few of her prints.
When I first read When I Was Small by Sara O’Leary, my throat got so tight at the end and tears came rolling down. After, I picked up the rest in the series, Where You Came From, and When you were Small. As a mom of boys, I love Henry. Sara and Julie together, capture the heart.
This Is Sadie will not disappoint. I have been following closely, it will be the story book of all storybooks. I saw a mermaid. Eeeep!!!!
With the release of the book just around the corner, Tundra Books has beautiful activities to share. You can find them here.
We had so much fun making ours and we added the little masks to our garland because we liked them so much.
We really cannot wait for this beautiful book, May, come soon.
Kellie! Looks like you and yours had a lovely time. The book does not disappoint! Your peg doll is wonderful and I’m going to have to feature it in my own post. 🙂
Honestly, Kellie, this is just the nicest thing! Such a beautiful post–that little peg doll! the tiny mask! your little masked boy!–it’s all quite amazing. But also, so moving to read your reaction to our earlier books and to think of you reading them with your boys.
Writing books for children was pretty much the last thing I ever expected to be doing but the rewards of this choice have been immeasurable for me…and when I say that, you should know that I count reading this among those rewards. Thank you so much.
