Photo Challenge #52 Counting my Blessings

I’m killing two pigeons with a stone. Well, I’m not too crazy about this idiom. Perhaps we could change it to; I caught two pigeons with a net?

I’m counting my blessings because look at what I just received in the mail right on time for Christmas. A signed copy of The Gift Shop Bear. It should count for the photo challenge since I took a picture of it.

My grandchild will be thrilled.

A BIG thank you to Phyllis Harris and Susanna Hill.

It’s a heartwarming story about friendship. Which child hasn’t hugged a teddy bear?

Little Bear patiently awaits Christmas, especially for his best friend Annie, to pull him out of his box from the attic and play with him in her nana’s gift shop. While playing with Annie, Bear overhears customers saying Nanna is retiring and therefore closing the shop. What would become of him? Would he be locked up in a box forever and never be able to play with Annie again?

This book is a perfect gift to put under the Christmas tree and is beautifully illustrated by the author.

Happy Holidays to everyone, especially the KidLit community, for their support and friendship.

When I was a child, I spent my summer holidays by the swamp catching tadpoles and other creepy critters or running after wild animals. I wanted to become a veterinarian when I grew up. But destiny turned my life around - I moved to Italy where I obtained my BS in Environmental Sciences and Territorial Management. When not working in our family-run business, I write, read, play with clay, doodle, and go on scavenger hunts in the woods followed by my six cats and two dogs.
