It’s T3 time again! This month is a Freebie, no theme just pick whatever you want. In keeping with Children’s Book Month here on the blog, I’m taking my inspiration from a childhood favorite: A Special Trade by Sally Wittman.
This is the simply gorgeous story of two best friends. Bartholomew is an elderly man who looks after his young neighbor, Nellie. As she grows up and he grows older, they trade places. My favorite line, oft repeated in my house, is:
Don’t be saddish, have a radish!
Radishes are certainly not my favorite vegetable, but they do come in lovely colors!
For my radish inspired look I combined the reddish purple, white, and green colors from the picture above. I even threw on a nude and gold studded belt because it reminds me of the radish on the far right. 😀
Unfortunately, A Special Trade is out of print, but my library had a copy! Some other stories about intergenerational friendships are Uncle Elephant by Arnold Lobel and A Christmas Memory by Truman Capote.
Okay, its your turn! Link up below:
