Julia Donaldson books are a staple in our world. We have read one of her book almost on a daily basis as part of out Night routine. The simplicity and the magic of imagination is so beautifully woven together that it makes reading a pleasure not only for the child but also for the adult. Also I think that there are so many layers to the writing that with age the child is able to observe something completely different. So
Dear Ms Donaldson
Happy Birthday from someone who sends a little bit of time with you almost everyday. I have always enjoyed your company. I have seen my child smile every single time I read your books even if I have read it a thousand times before. Thank you for your beautiful imagination. Thank you for the simple words. Thank you for the beautiful world that you create that we escape to and thank you for making us feel so safe there.
A letter from a mother who will forever love and appreciate the way you write for it taught my child how to imagine.
