Burnside Community Centre – Hall, Sat Feb 21
The publishing of the children’s book One Step At A Time is the culmination of a Pozible campaign and a solid community support, authors Jane Jolly and Sally Heinrich have enjoyed the backing of MidnightSun Publishing plus Safeground – the good folks who run the campaigns against landmines.
The book is about a young Thai man, Luk, who lives with elephants and one particular baby elephant, Mali. The story is engaging, the pictures a delight, the message strong, clear and powerful. While it is certainly suitable for children, it is likely to bring a tear to the adult eye as well. It’s a great book, beautifully made and deserves every success.
As for the launch – a lot of like-minded people who heard about this and contributed came along to enjoy tea, coffee, drinks, elephant cookies and several cute little projects for children, such as making an elephant finger puppet, an elephant mask etc. Of course after the formal launch was story time for the many assembled children.
This book will make a great present and is also one you might consider buying to donate to your local kindy or primary school.
