Bubbles before bed

I love children's books - especially the ones with beautiful and clever illustrations. For a long time I kept buying picture books, eventhough Emil and Anne-Sophie were too old for that kind of books.

But I simply got dragged by an inviting picture on the front page of a book. Now I hardly every buy them.

Well, that was until yesterday when I got an urge to do it again.

On Belle and Boo's blog I read about the book Mandy just made. It's called Bubbles before bed and it's full of lovely activities for children, as well as a story.

I'm a great fan of Mandy's work. She draws with such sweetness and empathy and the colors she uses are impossible to describe - they need to be experienced.

The book can be bought on etsy for the tidy sum of 10,75 $ and that is not much. I have considered buying the book for our niece who soon becomes a bigsister...that sounds like a splendid idea, don't you think? ;)

  3. Mange tak, Anne. :)) Jeg elsker at ændre på farver og opstilling, men ender altid med at prøve en masse forskellige af. ;))

    Jeg kan godt forstå, at du allerede har nogle af Mandys billeder - de er bare perfekte. Og bogen tror jeg godt at vi kan glæde os til.

    Vi har haft en dejlig sommer - det har været skønt at være meget sammen med familien i det dejlige solskin. Jeg håber at i også har haft nogle vidunderlige sommerdage sammen. :))

    Jeg vil glæde mig til at læse nyt på din blog - det er dejligt at du er tilbage. :))

    Hav en rigtig god weekend. :))

    I'm glad that you liked the post, Yvonne and could use the information. It's my pleasure. :))

    That book is definitely going to be good. I ordered it today too. ;)) It seems to have so many ideas and along with the fabulous pictures I'm sure that I will love it. Maybe too much to give it away to our little niece. ;)) (thank Good for more copies - then I can buy a new one for her).

    Have a lovely weekend.

    Ja, ikke, Rikke! :)) Jeg kan altså bare ikke stå for Mandys tegninger. Hun rammer plet mht. at skabe den helt rette stemning med sin geniale streg og brug af farver.

    Jeg elsker når folk får nye og fængende ideer. Hele konceptet med en historie bygget op omkring forskellige aktiviteter er måske set før, men alligevel er denne bog noget ganske særligt. Så nu må den gerne komme til min postkasse. ;))

    Hav en rigtig god weekénd.
