Long time Hip Little One readers will know by now that I am raising a tribe of little bookworms. From thick novels to massive encyclopaedias (not kidding!) to sweet picture books and wonderful pop-up stories, we can never get enough of reading. If, like my family, you are a big fan of Australian authors Alison Lester and Jane Godwin I am excited to share they’ve bundled their talents for a very special collaboration:
Inspired by and in partnership with the amazing children from the Royal Children’s Hospital Alison and Jane created The Silver Sea (RRP $19.99), a magical picture book that takes readers on a unique discovery trip of the ocean. Take a deep breath and dive under water and explore colourful creatures and eye catching nature like you have never seen before.
The rhyming story of a midnight adventure under the sea has been illustrated by the children of the hospital themselves, so much talent! The Silver Sea has allowed these children to momentarily forget about being patients, instead becoming real artists and seeing their very own art printed and enjoyed by many. The end result is a unique children’s book that will be read over and over again, there is so much to see and learn in the deep of the ocean.
As if we didn’t love The Silver Sea enough already, here’s the most fabulous thing about this beautiful book: All proceeds from The Silver Sea will go to the Education Institute at the Royal Children’s Hospital! So if you are looking for a wonderful gift that keeps on giving this is it.
