LoveReading View on Rose's Red Boots

March 2018 Book of the Month |   Rose and her dog Banjo are heading off for a day of adventures flying Rose’s kite.  Rose’s bright red boots splash through streams, crunch through leaves and chase Banjo as he runs up and down the hillside. With no parent or adult in sight it’s a celebration of play and a chance for little children to enjoy a vicarious bit of freedom and independence. Watercolour illustrations create a warm and recognisable world and it ends on a cosy note with Rose and Banjo safely home for tea. Written in verse that will soon have young readers joining in this is fun to read aloud and the story allows for all sorts of conversations and discussions.  ~ Andrea Reece

About Maura Finn

Born and bred in New Zealand, Maura Finn now lives in Melbourne with her husband and two young daughters. In her early writing days, she ran a rather lucrative playground business, swapping tailor-made poems for lunchbox leftovers. Now, many years later, she has rediscovered the joy and value of picture books through sharing them with her own children, and is delighted to think that her stories may contribute to other children’s love of reading.
