Birthday Gifts :)
- Evidence Not Seen ~ Darlene D. Rose (Christian mission biography during WWII)
I've been wanting to read this title for quite a while. So happy to get it for my birthday!!
- The Enchanted World of Winnie-the-Pooh Published by Dutton.
It's a indulgent read; interactive with lift the card features and filled of lovely illustrations and interesting facts that Winnie-the-Pooh lovers will enjoy; I am!

My darling husband purchased this for me. It's a book I enjoyed poring over while we were staying at an East Coast beach home last year and we stumbled across this kiwi bestseller at a local bookshop. Yay!
2nd Hand Finds
I'll just link to bookdepository, where I can, and toss in some pictures of the books we purchased; happily strapped for time elsewhere this week to want to spend extra moments photographing & uploading; so here goes:
After listening through the audio of this book, I'd been half hoping that I'd encounter a good 2nd hand copy somewhere :) Recommend this title, especially to fine arts appreciators!
- Crail Bay Farm ~ John Menzies (NZ Title)
2nd Hand Picture Books
- Quilting Now & Then ~ Karen Bates Willing & Julie Bates Dock
- The Life & Times of the Giant Kauri ~ Dave Gunson (NZ. History & Picture Book)
- Davy's Duck ~Dorothy Butler (NZ Picture Book)
This is a gentle retelling of a real life incident during 1904 in Waihi. The art work compliments the story beautifully.
Dorothy Butler has crafted some sort after, wholesome, New Zealand picture books.
- After The War ~ Bob Kerr (NZ Picture Book)
- The Red Poppy ~ David Hill (NZ Picture Book)
This site lists teaching notes to go with the above book.
And I'll end this post by listing one of the titles that Daisy selected out (so blessed to have a daughter that also shares a love of good books!); one of her finds was a favourite story,
The Reluctant Dragon ~ Kenneth Grahame, which contains gorgeous illustrations by Michael Hague like this one....
