Spending her prize money

Freya’s book tokens arrived – she won £50 in vouchers to spend on books when she won the story writing competition.

I’ve never seen someone so excited!

Immediately she knew that she wanted to but #drawwithrob books by Rob Biddulph and so spent some time browsing all of the books he has authored and that he has illustrated.

This is what her basket looked like:

I think she would have bought every title had she won more money!

Ever the generous sister, she wanted to buy each of the younger girls a gift with her money. We agreed that this wasn’t necessary and that we would add to her total enough money to buy them each the Draw With Rob activity book.

They were over the moon when the delivery arrived and we have been reading the books back to back.

Interestingly, the most fervent activity book user is Felicity.

I think the familiar images and style of drawing made her even more confident than usual with her mark making! This is her working on her Self-Portrait 🙂

We thought we would write to Rob Biddulph and let him know how much he had inspired her…. he answered! And read her book 🙂

He really is the nicest chap!
