Description - Little Treasure by Chanelle Gosper


Inside the small bowl of your hands,

I see your treasure.

A mother and child explore a deserted beach on a windy day. It is an afternoon they will both treasure always.

A poetic and tender book about how the small moments spent together are often the most precious.

'This book is a tug at the heart. It's beautiful, warm and thoughtful, and I had a tear in my eye at the end. But it was a drop of mother's love' GOOD READING

'An almost heartbreaking tale about children growing up and developing their own independence ... Goldsmith's illustrations leave the book awash with calmness and warmth ... Little Treasure brings to mind similarly comforting titles such as Jetty Jumping, The Little Things, and Nanna's Button Tin. A wonderful choice for Mother's Day' BOOKS+PUBLISHING

'Chanelle Gosper's lyrical, slow-moving prose perfectly captures the wonder and magic of play ... Jennifer Goldsmith's captivating illustrations are the perfect accompaniment ... It's sure to be a bedtime favourite' BETTER READING

'The story evokes the strong connection between mother and daughter, and this connection is beautifully depicted with the stunning illustrations' READPLUS

'Gosper's engaging rhyming text explores the things that a child and her mother discover together, while Goldsmith has created glorious seascapes using watercolour and pencil images collaged together to create a three-dimensional effect that adds visual impact. There are treasure ships, mermaids' jewels, imaginative play and a whole lot of love in this celebration of family time spent together in the natural world' CANBERRA TIMES

'Illustrator Jennifer Goldsmith's tender depictions of the simple, small, free moments in life will leave you breathless' THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY
