Petra by Marianna Coppo

We love this book. The message: You can be what and who you want to be…the only limit – your imagination.

Petra is a mighty mountain that can’t be moved by anything or anyone until we discover that she isn’t in fact a mountain but Petra is whatever she chooses to be (an island, an egg, an elephant,…). An important lesson for all children to learn.

i read this book to my class of Year 3s and they loved it. We went out to look for ‘our Petras’ and let our imagination run wild.

There is lots of fun to be had with this book. An uplifting ‘glass half full’ story that any child should read.

Written by Marianna Coppo and published by Thames & Hudson.
