A read-along story to remind us that… The Wonderful World Was Waiting
As we begin to return to the normality of life after lockdown restrictions ease, it’s worth pausing for a moment and thinking about the year we have just experienced. Noting the highs and the lows we have endured as well as realising that the wonderful world was waiting for us, it hadn’t gone anywhere… it was just patiently waiting for us to be ready.
The second title from Lauren Fennemore and Zoe Damoulakis, whose picture book The Year We Muddled Through – also about lockdown – was published successfully last year.
The Wonderful World Was Waiting
For the brave who had no choice but to work;
for the courageous who had no choice but to stop;
and for the lionhearted who were kept apart from loved ones
for longer than they ever thought possible.
For children, this rhyming story reveals magical new experiences for those who have missed out on growing up in lockdown; from roller-coaster bis rides and magical mermaids in swimming lessons to a playful picnic with zoon animals
For adults, this book captures how special these everyday experiences are, with a new sense of appreciation and joy. A timely bookshelf keepsake to send hope during a time of change.
