MTM – Childrens Lit

on September 21, 2009
If you’re looking for the Save One Mammy post, it’s here.

Like I said last week, I’m really excited about this theme. I love books, especially childrens books. Click here to see what everyone else came up with.

Froglet and I picked Star Seeker as our book. It’s actually on loan from a friend but we love it so much we’re definitely going to buy a copy. We love the poetry, the illustrations and the explanations about the Solar System in the back. It’s a great book for any kid interested in outer space.

Click on the photo to get a closer look… I think… Anyway clockwise from right we have:

Cookies on Venus = a gingerbread rocket
Mars, the red planet = bread roll covered in tomato paste
Fireworks on Pluto = yoghurt and raspberries with sprinkles
Moons and asteroids = cheese and pickled onions
Saturn = Pineapple rings and gold-wrapped chocolate
The Milky Way = frothy whipped cream with a gingerbread Bear and a pinwheel, representing the page you can see open (my favourite).

In case you can’t read it, it says:

I’ll spin like a pinwheel
Through the Milky Way’s froth
Take a ride on the Great Bear
And never fall off

Can you guess why cookies for Venus and fireworks for Pluto? 🙂
