Two TWT readers can win copies of a new book Grace & Katie – written by author Susanne Merritt and illustrated by Liz Anelli – courtesy of Exile Publishing.
Follow twins Grace and Katie on an imaginative story about art, creativity, sisterhood and individuality.
Grace and Katie love to draw.
Grace loves everything to be organised and neat, while Katie loves everything to be bright, bold and messy.
When they want to draw a map of their home and street, the girls can’t agree on how it should be done so they each decide to create their own map.
But that doesn’t work out quite as well as they’d planned.
Perhaps working together might be more fun after all! An imaginative exploration of individuality, sisterhood, creativity and appreciating each other’s strengths.
The book encourages kids to express their creativity and realise that there is no right or wrong way to be an artist.
Topic of map making is woven throughout the story, making this a valuable resource to explore visual literacy.
The book touches on the subject of twins/multiples in a way that emphasises each girl’s individual strengths.
Author Susanne Merritt is a mother of three and passionate advocate for children’s literacy.
Illustrator Liz makes pictures using collage and printmaking as well as paint, pencils and her computer. Her picture books explore the world in vivid detail.
Recommended retail price is $19.99.
Grace & Katie is available from November from www.ekbooks.org and wherever great books are sold.
