Now here’s a library I’d love to have on my shelves – just look at the wonderful books sent and received as part of the Perfect Picture Books by Post swap …



Heartfelt thanks to everyone who took part. So many beautiful, inspiring books have been shared and small but concrete connections made across the world – what wonderful consequences of the swap!

    Thanks everyone for the lovely comments! I had so much fun with the swap too. But I also realised how VERY hard it is to choose just one book to send!

    Thanks so much for organising the swap Zoe. We had a lot of fun both sending and receiving. And that list of books – oh dear – off to Amazon I go!!!

    Zoe, need to thank you for this absolutely brilliant idea. It was an official reason to go browsing in the middle of a working day. I had so much fun going through heaps of books. When the parcel arrived, the excitement took me back to my childhood when the postman would announce in a booming voice, “Parcel for you!” and out would tumble dolls and books and chocolates and trinkets from aunts who lived in other countries!

    Once again a big thank you for such a great exchange. I am enjoying the book I received so much, thank you T for such a great pick and thank you Zoe for contacting so many people from so many places. It’s also great you shared the titles that other families send, some have sparked my curiosity too!

    Hi Zoe.
    This was very fun and I would do it again.
    I haven’t received my book yet and assuming Polly hasn’t received mine, either. Gotta love snail mail, especially from Canada.
    I love this list. There are several I’m not familiar with and intend to investigate further.
    Thanks for all your effort with the swap.
    Tammy

    Oh, I wish I could thank each of you over a nice cup of tea or coffee for your lovely comments! I have to say, it is rather nice to see all the books together on this post – such diversity, and all sorts of interesting things.

    Hi We have been away and got back to see this wonderful list… We sent: Happy Birthday Jamela!!! by Niki Daly… it is on its way across the world but I can’t imagine us getting here anytime soon or them getting theirs anytime soon – the trouble with opposite ends of the earth!!! But I know it will be worth the wait!!! Thanks for the great idea!!!

    Hi Se7en, Thanks for letting me know what you sent, I’ve added it to the list and am keeping my fingers crossed that your books (sent and to be received) arrive soon :-)
