Grappig boek voor kinderen. Sommige krijtjes zijn verdwenen. Ze liggen ergens vergeten in de kelder, hebben met zijn tweeën in de zon gelegen en zijn nu aan elkaar gesmolten. Maar Teun heeft een oplossing. Mijn kleinkinderen vonden dit een geweldig boek.

This one book has it all: gorgeous visuals appealing to children, simple text that keeps older children amused and two-year-olds interested, a ghost theme that is not scary, and thanks goodness no morals at all. The two-to-three-year olds in my room went ballistic with the cute little ghosts suddenly appearing on the semi-transparent pages on top of the illustrations. Just magic...
Absolutely advised for non-scary Halloween reads.

I recently finished a lovely illustrated book by Oliver Jeffers. Here We Are Notes For Living on Planet Earth, written in 2017 is a beautiful message to his two-month old son welcoming him to this planet we call earth. What an incredible book!!!

A metaphor of grief and learning to move forward.
