Button boy made me smile, a big grin from ear to ear… Such a beautiful story by Rebecca Young of a boy who always has his eyes open for something that others may have lost, who finds specialness and joy in small wonders, and how sometimes this search opened up other discoveries of wonder.
Beautifully and elegantly illustrated by the whimsical and talented Sue deGennaro the story of Banjo, the young boy who loves to collect buttons will have you checking your own jumpers and jackets for lost buttons and perhaps will inspire you to keep your eyes open for lost buttons on your travels just waiting to be reunited with it’s owner.
The repetition within the story will help you enter Banjos world of lost buttons, wonder, joy and friends yet to have been met.
Keep your eyes open, you never know what you may find…
