Colour book

This is a little book I made for Yarrow when I was wandering round our house in Samoa, big and pregnant, finding little things to do to get ready for my new baby...

I scavenged old magazines from all the other ladies (when you're overseas a new magazine is like gold and gets passed around and re-read, and re-read and passed around, until it's completely tatty and sucked dry of any juicy gossip!) and cut them up to make a colour book. Each page has a funny little non-poem from cut-out words which will make no sense at all to a small baby (or most right-minded adults!). Eg:

I borrowed a laminator from a school teacher friend to make it tropical-humidity proof. 

Here are details from some of the pages:
