This lunch is also posted over at The Little Crooked Cottage as a Literary Lunch. Head over to the fabulous blog of four children's book authors and check out the wonderful Literary Interviews with Mr. Pig himself!
All you need sometimes is a friend that makes you feel strong and brave. Ella has a surprise for Penguin: glow-in-the-dark stickers. But to see the stickers glow, the friends must go where it is dark. And dark can be... really dark. They try everything to see the stickers glow in the light but nothing works. Will they find a way to stick together and face the dark to see something beautiful?
Find out in Ella and Penguin: Stick Together written by Megan Maynor and illustrated by Rosalinde Bonnet. A beautiful and sweet book about friendship with gorgeous illustrations. My kids adore this book and I luckily had some glow-in-the-dark stars left over to hand out after reading the book!
We made a snack for everyone who braves the dark to see beauty glow:
- an Ella sandwich with chocolate and jelly decorations,
- a penguin sandwich with chocolate and jelly decorations and a yellow pepper beak,
- and the most important: cheese glow-in-the-dark stickers.
