It’s the first day of December and Summer here in Australia! With Christmas just around the corner, I thought I’d share one of the books we like to read this time of year.
This big-hearted book by the incredibly talented author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds is a gentle reminder that the best gift we can give each other can’t be bought. If you’ve ever spent Christmas away from family and friends, you will understand this all too well. No amount of presents can replace the presence of our loved ones.
Roland, the child in this story loves presents … BIG presents, and he has to leave the planet to gain some perspective. We can just read this lovely book.
