Giveaway: Follow The Line To School

| June 30, 2011 | 22 Comments


Remember how a few weeks ago, we made our Potato Print Postcards ? And how the buildings where in part inspired by “Follow The Line”…? Well.. the gorgeously talented author, Laura Ljungkvist, has a wonderful new book out – Follow The Line to School. And you can win one!

This competition is open Worldwide!!!! So come and join in.

First the Follow The Line review as a reminder:

Follow the LineFollow The Line, Laura Ljungklist

This is a lovely book that will appeal to all “design geeks”… it is wonderfully illustrated and just that little bit different. It starts off in the morning – following a line around the city, through traffic, the ocean, country side etc until it is time for bed. The line becomes skyscrapers, cars, boats etc. It feels quite interactive, as you can “follow the line” with your finger and as you go through the pages you get to count different things (like fire hydrants or cars with lights on). So lots to look at and explore. We love it.

I have seen “parts” of the Follow The Line to School and it looks every bit as wonderful. I could imagine that this is particularly good for any of you, that have children who about to start school.. books covering school will always be handy at this time!

To enter:

1) Leave a comment below about your favourite childhood school memory

2) For an extra send Laura and me a drawing of your imaginary (or real) school to info (at) redtedart (dot) com. I ALWAYS love to see your children get crafty!

Competition closes on 07 July 2011.

    Lovely book! I have a little one starting pre-K in Sept so I will be sure to email you a picture entry. In the meantime…my favorite school memory is being out on the school field when I was about 7 or 8. We used to do handstands under an old tree. Even now (and I’m 34!?!?!) the smell of freshly cut grass takes me back to that time. Happy days!

  2. Ashleigh says:

    great book. mine has to be the christmas party!

  3. emma says:

    hahahaha mine would have to be the cheesy school discos *shudder*

    Loving the look of that book too – will certainly add it to our list for my book corner x

  4. Zoe says:

    ooh… my very favourite school memory is of playing “moons and suns” in our playground when I was at school in Aberdeen. We were all goddesses and had to get from one side of the playground to the other without the goddesses from the other side catching us. I was always a moon goddess!

  5. Louise says:

    Remembering playing elastics. How did I ever flip my legs that high and be so co ordinated that I could land on two thin pieces of elastic amazes me. good healthy fun.

  6. Marta says:

    This book looks fantastic, I’d love to read it with my son. My favourite school memory is the time just before going on a trip. I’ll always remember how happy and impatient we all were, we couldn’t stop talking and moving, and we were so ready to enjoy the day no matter where we were going! Good times!

  7. Amanda (organicmummy) says:

    My favourite school memory was in the playground playing “crosses” (was that the name?) where we would save all our mums/nan’s old nylon tights, tie them together in a huge loop and two people would stand with them around their ankles, while the third jumped over and between them, finishing by stamping on the crosses (a bit like cats cradle with your legs!) Does anyone else remember that, or am I really giving my age away!!!

  8. Kirsty Fox says:

    My school used to have a wooded area as well as a field and playground, and after the great storm of 1987, a couple of trees came down. We used to climb over them and pretend they were shop counters where we would sell each other acorns and stones etc. Sounds silly now but it was fantastic fun at the time!

    I would sent you a drawing of my 4 year old sons school (he starts in Sept) but he won’t sit still long enough, guess he will have to learn how to by Sept!

    When I was small,we had an old man give our art lessons and he used to always read to us while we painted.I remember him reading 101 dalmations to us like it was yesterday!

  10. Skipping with all my mates! One huge rope we could run into and we all sang and laughed and it was always sunny (!) This book looks gorgeous!

  11. Nikki says:

    My favourite school memory is of building ‘camps’ among the trees by making (very low!) walls out of piles of fallen leaves.

  12. Kirsty says:

    Running around the trees on my pretend motorbike and stopping to fill up with petrol and ice cream!

  13. favourite memory was climbing the trees and sitting on top of the swings in Berlin in the early 70’s, loved that school and had a lot of friends there.

    will get the kids to draw you a pic

  14. Jacke says:

    My favorite memory of school was my third grade classroom. It was such a wonderful warm, cheery place. Our teacher involved us in the community of the classroom… and she even let the students be the ones to write on the board or write messages. We all adored her and never realized she was sneaking in extra learning opportunities.

  15. wulan sari says:

    i love math! like to annoy my sisters when they did their homework XD
    love to play jump rope with my friend at schoolyard:D

  16. Isil says:

    Oh please enter me.We LOVE her books and D. is starting school in September,too.
    I started school in Germany and they have the traditon of preparing a big cone for each child filled with sweets and chocolate.You are supposed to open it on the first day. What a treat 😉

  17. Beth Gerrard says:

    This looks like a great book for my grandson who starts school in Autumn.

    My favourite school memory is of learning poetry – something I still love.

  18. Damyanti says:

    A fond memory of school is being in the choir, singing wasn’t my forte but I was allowed to play the keyboard

  19. Ali B says:

    My favourite memory is of sitting under the table and drawing on a huge piece of paper on the floor. I’m not sure why I was under the table, but I remember it being dark, so maybe it was winter and bad weather?

    I saw this book in the bookshop at the Victoria and Albert Museum and thought of you!

  20. Paul h says:

    Good luck everyone.

    My best memory at school is the arguements between my dad and the school. Knew i was going home when i saw the truck in the carpark.

  21. Claire says:

    I loved that in kindergarten we raised tadpoles into frogs, lol

  22. Heather Vogler says:

    Favorite school memory, hmmm. Our elementary school used to have “skate nights” when they’d turn the cafeteria into a roller rink. Gotta love the 80’s!
