Review: Sew Charming

SEW CHARMING 

‘Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene show us just how versatile a Charm Pack of 5in squares really is. Choose from 18 different projects in various sizes, including table runners to mini quilts and wall hangings. There’s an eclectic mix of fabrics in each project varying from cosy flannels, vintage gingham and creams to fresh pastels and batiks offering something for everyone. The bright, jewel-toned Snowballs and Nine Patches in the quilt featured far left, really pop against a neutral background making it a perfect summer make.’

Reviews: Sleep Well, Siba and Saba

SLEEP WELL, SIBA AND SABA

‘Both story and illustrations are full of references to Ugandan folklore, and combine to create a wonderful bedtime book that is sure to help your child drift off to sleep.’

*Books Trust’s Books We Like for May 2017*

Book Trust  | May 2017

 

‘This is a charming, engaging picture book that will fill children with delight. The story is universal, but the beautiful illustrations reflect the author’s Ugandan heritage, lending a magical quality to the tale. The story will help children come to terms with the idea that some things lie in the past and can only be recollected in dreams, but that there are always new things to discover, that perhaps we haven’t even dreamed of yet!’

Mary Mayfield | Our Book Reviews Online  | May 2017

 

‘This gentle, rhythmic story by Nansubuga Nagadya Isdahl is perfect for bedtime and the illustrations by Sandra van Doorn are a lot of fun. We particularly like the flamingos!’

Reviews: The Wooden Camel

THE WOODEN CAMEL

This universal story of keeping those dreams alive through imagination could have been set anywhere, but by choosing the dry desert of the northwest of her native Kenya, Wanuri Kahiu introduces children to a life very different to their own. Illustrator Manuela Adreani brings Etabo’s world to life in colourful full page spreads that capture the arid heat, dry sandy ground, and, of course, the swiftness of camels. The Wooden Camel is a lovely book which emphasises that no matter how different our lives may be we all have dreams, and through our imagination can pursue them.

Mary Mayfield | Our Book Reviews Online  | May 2017

The Wooden Camel is a beautifully illustrated tale of imagination and joy, drawn from the well of day to day life. Young readers will see a boy using his creativity and optimism to face his family’s problems. This is a subtle yet powerful lesson useful to children from any part of the world.’

Review: Cathedrals and Churches of Europe

CATHEDRALS AND CHURCHES OF EUROPE

If you don’t have a coffee table, do get one! You’ll certainly need one to give pride and place in your home to ‘Cathedrals and Churches in Europe’ by Dr Barbara Borngässer, Rolf Toman and Achim Bednorz, a large format book from publishers HF Ullman.

With over 500 illustrations, this marvellous book takes us on a journey throughout Europe’s most beautiful and magnificent sacred buildings. Arranged by country and region, there is a chapter for eleven important area of Europe. Europe has a lot of church buildings, and even for a book this large, the choice of areas covered is inevitably limited. It is also at times a touch arbitrary. For example, the chapter on England’s Medieval Cathedrals heads no further north than Lincoln. But these are minor criticisms.

With beautiful photographs by Achim Bednorz, the book shows in great detail the stunning richly ornamented ceilings, lead glass windows, colourful carpets, solid stone walls and other architectural features. The accompanying country maps are useful for any armchair church crawler and for anyone wanting to plan a visit to see Europe’s churches and cathedrals for themselves.
