More Christmassy things... this time I've found a lovely collaborative book written by Buenos Aires-based artist/graphic designer Yael Fran. The Bright Red Star is a simple and spiritual story full of animals and friends and brings together the work of 14 etsy artists in a similar vein to the "We are..." etsy colouring books.
"On Christmas Eve, little Anna was trying to hang a bright red star on top of the tree. But she was very very very short and could not reach the top..."
If you're not familiar with Fran's work, make a bee-line for her shop and blog and enjoy! I spied some wonderful, affordable gifts and stocking fillers this morning, including this new accordian count to 10-learning numbers book. Watch Pinocchio's nose grow as you unfold the book and count to ten with your children.
Yael Fran's mini-colouring book would make another sweet present
as would these quirky purse holders/wallets (save money if you buy a set of three)
and these fun "talk to me finger" puppets for quarreling couples.
