Meet Maretha Botha #RRBCPIF

 

Time has come once again for the members of Rave Reviews Book Club to take a moment and “pay it forward” by spending a day supporting another member, who in turn will support another member, who in turn will… well you get the idea 🙂

I am lucky to have been assigned the talented children’s author Maretha Botha, who has created the wonderful world of Fauna Park.

Who is Maretha?

MarethaAuthor/Illustrator Maretha Botha admits to being addicted to espresso and chocolate, and hiking occasionally on the moors, as well as being a seasonal gardener. In addition, she has written a series of children’s books – Fauna Park Tales. Books 1-3 are available in Kindle as well as black and white paperbacks. To enhance reading pleasure for better readers in her target market, 9-13, she has added some illustrations.

Additionally, she has combined books one and two in a 174-page Colour illustrated Version, should you want to see colour illustrations on the printed page as well.

What has she written?
Maretha has written a series of animal books based in the fictional location called “Fauna Park” where the animals commune together in an attempt to protect and preserve them all. I reviewed the first instalment of this series recently here:  https://dawndelivers.wordpress.com/2017/05/07/flame-and-hope-book-review-rrbc/
It almost made me wish I had a couple of kids to read the book to … almost 😉

This too shall pass

When you think the world is being dragged into hell, when the hate seems to be all that there is and when the terror seems to be never ending we have to remember, this too shall pass.

There is a time for grief; our cities, our countries, our world needs to mourn their senseless losses, but let that grief not be fuelled by hate. Hold on to the hope of better times and of better lives.

 

If they try to stop you singing, then sing louder.

If they try to stop you dancing, then dance longer.

If they try to stop you loving, then love harder.

If they try to end your way of live, then live it all the more.

Never let the hate win, that is the way those who spread the hate will win.
