Blog Tour: Sign Here




Today is the last stop on the Sign Here Blog Tour and it is finally our turn so welcome to Along Came Poppy and we do hope you enjoy our post.

Sign Here is a truly unique book for children containing 22 "unofficially official" forms to be ripped out, filled in and of course signed! The forms cover all sorts of childhood issues from dream and pet requests, to tooth collection and thank yous. These humour-filled forms also provide a lighthearted and imaginative way for children to communicate some bigger issues for example when they are scared, sad, angry or simply want to say sorry.

The book, which is a collaboration between two milliners, author Gabrielle Djanogly and illustrator, Adele Mildred, is designed with children age 6-10 in mind. It is perfect for those creative and imaginative little beings who thrive on writing notes, creating charts and making lists. So when Mini Reviewer, Izzie, first got her hands on our copy of Sign Here, she could not wait to get started!

Our Favourite Form


Today we thought we'd share one of our favourite forms from the book The Father Christmas / Santa Claus Form compiled by The Embassy of the North Pole. Now you may think it is a bit early to be writing Christmas lists but all three Mini Reviewers have already been browsing the toy catalogues and putting in their requests, and anyway, this pull-out form is so much more than a simple list, just take a look below...

Izzie completed the form with brutal honesty. Apparently this year she thinks she has behaved "sometimes good, sometimes bad" and she is "not sure" if she plans to behave better next year because  she is, in her own words, "always a bit cheeky." Yes Izzie, yes you are! 

I am delighted that she has promised to be asleep by 8.10pm on Christmas Eve and I assume I can hold her to that? This is after all a very official looking form! 

She will be leaving mince pies and milk for Santa as well as carrots and speshule (special) reindeer food by the front door. Her favourite part of the form was completing the map "to mark the quickest route for Father Christmas / Santa Claus", which she took incredibly seriously. As you can see below, she has made it very clear that we do not have a chimney, so Santa will just have to dig out that magic key of his!


Finally

  6. Haha, love the crossed-out chimney! No room for error there! This looks great fun. Not only for the kids filling in the forms, but also for the parents seeing how they've answered some of the questions. #KCACOLS

  7. Looks fun, but I will never get anything that resembles anything of a naughty list type of thing.
    But I really liked the idea of the forms.
