A children book that fits all ages

Mamette 1's coverThis weekend I’d like to change a topic of my writing after having posted about photos for many weeks. I’d like to give a review and recommendation on a children book that will fit all ages, Mamette 1: Änglar och duvor (Anges et pigeons).

The book is originally in French, I bought a Swedish version when JJ and I went to Gamla Stan to take some photos. I didn’t get good photos of the old city but two new books, which I didn’t anticipate.

We’re walking around and passed the Science Fiction bookshop. Anyone who visits Gamla Stan in Stockholm might see it. It’s been there for many years and sells a large variety of science fiction books and Japanese manga.

Mamette’s book lied together with other illustration books in the kids section. The cover has a picture of Mamette who looks kind and calm, is drawing a shopping wheeled cart in the middle of a busy city in autumn.

I picked up the book because of an illustration of Mamette that the artist, Nob, portrayed her as an old lady who seemed to be happy at heart. Somehow it reflects my belief about seniority. When we get older, many of us might not get comfortable what an aged body brings and be sad from it, but Mamette is different.

How she thinks and see things around her is very important to improve quality of life when we get retired. It’s a retirement from work, not life. It is our own choice how we live it until the last day.

The writer doesn’t only hide life philosophy over the book, but also adds some lovely humours about the senior’s behaviors, which we commonly find in our parents or senior relatives. Perhaps you find a better way to understand and handle their behaviors.

Thus, I’d like to recommend this book, the publisher categorizes it in a group of 9-12 year-old children but I think it’s for all. It’s a high quality children book with fantastic illustrations and storyline.

Enjoy reading and have a happy week! ^^

2012 in review

Similar to what I did today last year, I’d like to thank all of likes, comments and visitings. They’re very much appreciated.

Blogging is a way to remind me what I have done, to remember my days and to feel thankful to life. I blog this and that, depending on what I’m doing or interesting at that time, which might not be useful or interesting for others.  Even though, on some posts, I hope that they are liked by others.

Having people dropping by and leaving some traces, therefore, is very much appreciated for me. At the very least, you make me feel good to have others to share stuff with and like the posts.

All the best!
Nattawan
