Year 3 were lucky enough to meet the author Käitlin Vainola and illustrator Ulla Saar of the Estonian book ‘Lift’
To begin with, the author read the book in Estonian while an actor translated it into English. Estonian is such a unique language don’t you agree? We were then given the opportunity to create our own characters that may feature in the book and write a brief description about each of them. I was extremely impressed with Year 3’s creativity and drawing skills.
Did you find this trip inspiring? Can you tell us about the characters you created? What animals were they? What were their names?
