Polly's Little Kite
by Brian Maunder
A brilliant and cleverly woven allegorical type picture book. It is a tale about a little girl, her dad and the little kite they make. At the centre of the story (and in the centre of the kite!) is the cross, which is at it's heart. Instructions for making a little cross kite of your own are included in the back.
What's so good about this book is that it does really manage to convey in an easily graspable way how important the cross is to our lives. It emphasises how if we have the cross running through our lives we can survive many things, and how with the cross at the centre of our lives we can be resurrected and made new. What's more it does all of that without actually preaching, in fact it doesn't actually mention Jesus at all, just the cross running through the Kite-a brilliant allegorical tale that can even be used in any classroom or children's setting without fear.
