All week this week at my eldest imp's school they are doing lots of book and story related activities for World Book Day which is on the 3rd of March.
Today they all got to go to school dressed as a character from their favourite book, and Elora chose 'Tell Me a Dragon' by Jackie Morris, a book both my imps enjoy immensely... they love imagining their own wild dragonkind and pore endlessly over the endpapers which are completely filled with wonderfully coloured Dragon's eggs of all shapes and sizes, all in various stages of hatching out!
We've got lots of Jackie's books and I enjoy them as much as the children do... in fact it was discovering Jackie's books that first inspired me to find the Children's Illustration courses that have got me started in the direction I want to go.
It was also Jackie that inspired me to start this blog... I know lots of you already visit hers which is here at Drawing a Line in Time
Elora made her costume with a little help from Grandma after school yesterday, so I got a very Dragony surprise when I arrived to pick to the children up after work! As you can see she's a rather mischevious young hatchling! But luckily she hasn't got the hang of fire breathing just yet...
She's got a good roar though!!
She's requested melted gold for breakfast which is apparently what Dragons of her kind drink... Hmmm might be a bit expensive raising a young Dragon hatchling I fear!!
