“It makes me feel happy” – book reviews from little ones.

The book launch continues at a steady pace. Last week I was in an infant school with year 2, some of whom were at the school when I chatted with them about the ideas behind ‘So many answers’. It was great to show them the finished book and talk together about all the processes needed to get from an idea to the book being launched.

We giggled about some of the pictures, and what they reminded them of – and the times they had asked something that had that same answer!

“I like the cake one best”

“My favourite is the feet – little lovely baby feet in a heart”

answers always I love you

I had the opportunity to read the book with them. And afterwards they gave me feedback!

“It makes me feel happy”

“I’m thinking about how some things don’t feel fair”

“It reminds me about sharing”

“God loves everyone”

“Can I buy the book?”

I left them wondering and planning some writing of their own (can’t wait to go back and hear all about it), and left them with the challenge to think about other answers God sometimes gives us when we ask him things.
