Don’t Forget

Jane Godwin, Anna Walker

Don’t forget to make your bed, and wear socks that fit your feet… Don’t forget to care, to play, To run, to laugh…

Sometimes, we need to remember all the things we can do to be part of the world. Small things, like offering a smile. And bigger things, like hoping, dreaming, imagining…

Review

There are all the ordinary things that children are reminded not to forget, such as brushing your teeth and doing your homework. But what about the more intangible things, the building blocks that are often forgotten or ignored in busy lives and yet help nurture a child’s soul and senses: to wonder; to listen to the music of the trees; to enjoy moments of solitude. This is a beautiful, quiet book that gently nudges caregivers and children beyond a routine of well-meaning habits toward thinking about a holistic life of wonder.

Anna Walker’s illustrations delicately interpret Jane Godwin’s words, and as in the best collaborations, they add an extra depth to the story. Don’t Forget is a joy from start to finish from this much-loved Australian team. For ages 3+.
