Be Brave Pink PigletOur Starts at 60 community reviewer Jess Cammack says: “This book tells the story of a little pig who goes out into the world, exploring new experiences. He begins timidly, feeling frightened by many of the other animals he meets; but gathers courage as his exposure to new experiences increases.

I read this book to my 3 year old granddaughter, who was enthralled with the story from start to finish. With colourful illustrations and not many words, this makes a charming story with an important lesson to share with children under five. “

I live in rural Queensland, and I’m still enjoying my work with young people in a community setting. At sixty-two, I cannot even guess when I will be ready to retire, because I am still enjoying work so much. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, admiring the world around me, and playing word games on my ipad. I love to read, but these days, it is just as likely to be from a digital source as from a book or magazine. Reading interests include cooking, crafts and gardening, as well as mysteries, biographies, travel stories and historical novels.
