The sequel to the lockdown-hit ‘The Year we Muddled Through’, which was published just days before first-time-mum Lauren Fennemore gave birth to her miracle-baby daughter (and sold over 20,000 copies) is HERE!
While the original book provided soft illustrations and soothing rhyme to help us see the magic within the mundane, this new joyful anthem of hope shows the beauty in experiences we previously took for granted.
Everyday outings such as swimming lessons and birthday parties have a whole new level of wonder for these young children who have grown up in lockdown and may be experiencing them for the very first time.
Of course, the magic isn’t lost on us adults too, who have been waiting for a long time, for something as simple as a hug.
The Wonderful World Was Waiting
