#HalloweenBooktacular with Miss Ruby Heart

Facebook Online Halloween Event

Over on Facebook we are trying out a special Halloween Children’s Book Event sharing Halloween Treats much better than sweets. Sadly the Facebook layout has changed and we don’t know if it is going to work in our favour. We are currently unable to schedule posts. However, we will do our very best to share some of our favourite reads suitable for this wonderful season of ‘Trick or Treating’.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars 

What a beautiful and very creative book full of wonderful fantasy snowflakes combining sea-creatures and fantasy images. A truly therapeutic book with the images all including descriptions written below.

The author is remarkably talented and I love that they are connected to the beautiful stories from ‘The Dragon Dreamer Series’

Very Highly Recommended

Today I am wishing Peter Bently, Steven Lenton and Nosy Crow a Happy Publication Day for their new title, Octopus Shocktopus!

Octopus Shocktopus! - Nosy Crow

In this lovely, community-minded story, a giant octopus lands on a house in a town and everyone is surprised and rather thrilled, apart from Mrs Antrobus, who’s not impressed.

The Octopus soon makes many friends and the townspeople learn to value its contributions as they embrace it as one of them. Even Mrs Antrobus is persuaded that the eight-legged creature has a place amongst them after it saves her cat. But then one day Octopus disappears and everyone feels bereft. Where has their tentacular friend gone?

This is a funny, inspiring and ultimately happy story about friendship, accepting and celebrating differences, and building a community. Peter Bently’s rhymes are superlatively smooth and bring pace and hilarity to the story, while Steven Lenton’s bright and inviting illustrations suck you in…

#InternationalDayOfFriendship

Friendship Day On our way 01

International Day of Friendship

Today we had the great pleasure of offering our hand/paw of friendship to some wonderful residents in a local care home. We wrote a letter or card for each of the twenty nine current residents and then delivered them masked up, via the carpark of the home. We gave the items to Clare the Activities Co-ordinator.

“The International Day of Friendship was proclaimed in 2011 by the United Nations General Assembly with the idea that friendship between peoples, countries, cultures and individuals can inspire peace efforts and build bridges between communities.”

(Quote from www.un.org/en/observances/friendship-day )

Today we also discovered, running alongside the International Day of Friendship is the event #PostcardsOfKindness so now there is a new purpose to my life. This event was set up to bring a smile upon the faces of home care residents. This works by sending mainly postcards to individuals or as a group check out their website. Happy Reading
