Annika’s wee book, Neighbours, arrived.
I love holding it in my hands. It feels inviting.
It is a delight to absorb the bright pictures.
Her re-telling of the story of the Good Samaritan pulls you in.
I showed it to a nine-year-old who immediately sat on the floor cross-legged, and read it.
She pronounced it “awesome!.”
Here is a Skype conversation with Annika about how the book came to be and what’s she’s noticing about how children and adults are responding to it .
Here is a link to information about ordering Neighbours ($10 including shipping). Annika’s website. We’ll have a list soon of other places to purchase her book.
