Letting the Summer Go is inspired by true events after the Black Summer bushfires in 2019-20. It tells the story of how a mother and daughter found the courage to move forward by tending their garden.
We hope that the poetic text by Alice Teasdale and sumptuous illustrations by Julia Both will help parents talk to their children about the journey forward after a difficult event. It's a joyful story about working towards recovery by watching colour unfurl from the earth, under the watchful eye of a disgruntled hen!
Welcome to our Kangaroo Island book shop where we'll share stories, celebrate springtime and give this children's book the launch it deserves.
Official Launch will be at 2pm, but drop in between 1 and 3:30 to chat and celebrate! Wine, juice and nibbles will be served.
