Lots of my family members have had birthday’s during lockdown, including Miya (my little sister)…
I sent her a few gifts through the post… including the book The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy as I’d seen it around a lot and was feeling very drawn to it!
Anyway…since we’ve been having lots of FaceTime catch-ups we decided to have a little read together as I got myself a copy too.
Oh my word, this book is even sweeter than I ever expected and we read the whole thing during our call, taking turns to read a page each.
It’s nothing heavy, only a few sentences/a quote per page but so thoughtful, with beautiful illustrations.
It’s set out somewhat like a poem book I guess…you don’t HAVE TO read it in order from beginning to end you can just dip into a page for a thoughtful fix where ever you please, which I just love.
We ended with a good natter afterwards, sharing our favourite quotes and illustrations.
I would highly recommend this as a treat to yourself or a gift to another.
It’s an absolute joy!
