Our little girl received a most divine gift of books last Christmas and they have become loved favourites in our family and for our children. This month I thought it a great opportunity to share these books with you – they would simply make such a divine gift for yourself, your little one or a friend.
Ruby is a very special bunny and her book a gift that would last beyond right now, into childhood memories and beyond. Books are such a magical gift and have their way of sticking around a family. This book has definite heirloom potential. Just soak up every sweet word and delicate illustration and see how quickly these books find their way to your heart.
Get To Know Ruby Red Shoes
The message of the book sits so well with everything our family wants to nurture in our children. Kindness, aware living, permaculture. Ruby keeps chooks, grows vegetables and is encouraged by her loving grandmother to respect and be gentle to the world.
The books have been crafted by Australian illustrator and author Kate Knapp and they are a sensory delight. The imagery is completely beautiful, so soft and detailed. The book is a hardcover that feels like something special in your hand. When you read about Kate and her dedication to the books and her work you can imagine the time spent creating just the perfect colour ink as she painted each scene. The second book for example took 8 months of illustration, working 7 days a week. It is extremely inspirational.
We cant believe it took us so long to get behind Kate and Ruby Red Shoes, but we are now very passionate Ruby readers and hope that you will join us xx The books are also perfectly priced for a gift at $19.95 each and sometimes can be found for even less on sale! Find your own copy of Ruby Red Shoes and Ruby Red Shoes Goes to Paris in your local bookstore or order online. Ruby even has her own website and FB page where you can connect with her adventures.
