This picture makes me laugh when I see it. I bought this cinnamon bun for my youngest. I asked her if she was going to be able to eat it all. Naturally, she said, " No problem". It was as big as her head.
I am not sure how I didn't know about Stella and her little brother Sam. The childrens books are written by Montreal author Marie-Louise Gay. The series of book follow the adventures of Stella and her little brother Sam.
I was immersed in the world of Stella and Sam when I did a book reading for kids for Playhouse Disney Canada as they toured to announce the new show set to launch on the channel in the new year. I was lucky to receive a gift package of several of Gay's lovely series.
My kids have already read several of the books and I have read a few to them. One of my favourites is When Stella Was Very, Very Small.
It takes Stella back a few years. This was before Sam was around. In this book, Stella remembers what it is like to be very, very small. She discovers the worlds revealed through listening, seeing and feeling. I love this book. It is sweet. I love the story and I love the illustrations and artwork, the water colours and drawings have a lovely whimsical feel.
