Picturebooksdumonde : August edition
Welcome to Picture Books du Monde, a monthly link-up where bloggers from around the world share their love of all things related to picture books.
If you’re reading this, we’re guessing that you are interested in Picture books. Kids or teens or even adults may love picture books.
Well that’s one of many thing we have in common Shannon and I.
Who are those ladies hiding behind this book?
Shannon and I met through blogging and first in real life back in February at Sydney Taronga Zoo, our arms full of picture books and other picture design things. We decided at that time that we should spread our picture book passion together on our blogs. We are fan of arts, namely streetart. For our August fun day (this one without kids!!!), I asked Shannon if she could take me on a street art photowalk. We had a fun day, stalking the street art in Sydney’s streets, eating fabulous cakes and taking lots of pictures.
No standing, No parking, No kidding, but reading reading reading!!!!
Yes, Australia it is!!! Kangaroos in street arts!
What is this book?
I found this book « The dream of Princess Clarice » by Julieta Franco, in a little shop in Lisbon, Portugal while I was traveling there in may. The author was selling it directly and is self published. When I saw that there was an english version I thought straightaway to my aussie friend Shannon!
You can find more about this author and her world on this link.
What an excellent example of book for #Picturebooksdumonde!!! So I kept it and bring it back for our second in Real Life party! And now the whole Day family can enjoy it!
What is the fun of picture books sharing and linking?
Even if we don’t get the langage, picture books are great visual literacy. Usually the visual adds some meaning to the text but if we don’t understand the text, our aesthetical fibre can be touched by very pretty drawings, or a dramatic drawing can give us clue about the story. That’s the point and the fun about #Picturebooksdumonde. All around the world, let’s share our love of nice and useful books for children or teens or adults. Each month we love discovering books from around the globe.
Look at my kids, not really reading the english text of Shannon’s books gifts but totally into the story of those brilliant picture books.
We warmly invite you to share your love of picture books with us in our monthly link up party.
