And then there were postcards

Having dutifully sent off our postcards around the world I really really really hoped we would receive some in return. 

And we did!

One from Canada...

... which recommended "The Paper Bag Princess" by Robert Munsch.
One from India
Lovely handmade-paper card from India with dried flowers that it is best we never tell anyone from Customs about.
... which recommended "Two Crazy Pigs" by Karen Berman Nagel.

One from New Zealand...

... which recommended "Follow That String" by Deborah Brown and Kathy Bacovitch.

One from France...

... which recommended "There Are Cats In This Book" by Viviane Schwarz.

Look at the cute little picture of the cover of the book included on the back of the card:

There was also from the USA, which has disappeared, I suspect down a black hole, never to be retrieved (aka under the fridge). I will update this post with a picture of it if I manage to fish it out.

Next project: go to library and see if we can find copies of any of them!

Thank you to Zoe from Playing By the Book for organising this. It was a great project and I hope it will still be going when Little E is old enough to properly appreciate it.

The Paper Bag Princess was one of Lizzie's favourite books! My Canadian friend went dressed as her last Halloween :-)
