Sweet Briar Skunk was bored. It was only two weeks into summer vacation and all her friends were away.
Synopsis: Everyone is picking on porcupine but Briar feels sorry for her and makes her a craft of herself, then porcupine has made crafts for all of them, everyone bonds.
This is a very cute story with a huge heart and a great lesson for children.
p.s. I’m too excited not to tell you that I’m going to be reading my sport poem for And the Crowd Goes Wild anthology at the book launch in Toronto in November. How exciting and absolutely terrifying. I’ll be shaking like a leaf in a wind storm, but it will be great to take the whole family to Toronto for the first time too.
Have a super weekend and enjoy all these picture books!
