THE SNOW QUEEN
Last week while buying a Baptismal gift in our lovely local bookshop/cafe, I came across a beautifully illustrated edition of The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. It made me feel nostalgic, because I just loved that story as a child, and remember well some of the pictures in my childhood copy.
Imagine my delight last night, while looking for a new bedtime story for Emily on our rather extensive bookshelves, to find my old storybook still there. I had forgotten I still had it! The story is "In seven parts", so I am hoping that by the end of the week, Emily will also come to love it. And if she does, I will go back to the bookshop and buy that new one for her!
And perhaps one for myself, too!
