A great post Christina! Lovely to learn more about the background to your writing and also to what makes things work on the home front. I haven’t had time to read Sausage Hall yet, but it’s sitting on my bookshelf waiting for me. Next month will see me with some real reading time!
A whole heap of thanks, Valerie, for this! I know you’ve been otherwise engaged for some time and I have missed you enormously on the networks. You obviously deserve some time to yourself and I’ll be privileged indeed that you will spend part of it on ‘Sausage Hall’. Many good wishes to Rotterdam/Zeeland. 🙂
I’ve missed my blog rounds very much too. It’s been lovely just going through some of my favourites today. This is one of them 🙂
You are very kind. 🙂
I enjoyed reading and learning more about you in the interview. As a teacher I am so glad to you mentioned reading should start in the home! This is not happening anymore, people are so caught up in acquiring the latest gadgets that the simple pleasure of picking up a book and sharing time with your children is a precious gift!
I’m astounded to hear that some people think teachers are responsible for getting infants to read. You’re absolutely right, Luciana, that reading is a special thing for parents and children to share. Storytime at bedtime was very much in place in my pre-school years; it was for our son, too. Utter magic for everyone!
