Holt Island will be celebrating the magic of The Bog Baby as part of our Summer Festival. Pop along and immerse yourself in another world whilst you explore the reserve and seek out hidden bog babies. - -
The Bog Baby is a magical story by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward
When two small sisters go fishing to the magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt. They find a bog baby. Small and blue with wings like a dragon, the girls decide to make him their secret. I won't tell if you won't.
But the bog baby is a wild thing, and when he becomes poorly, the girls decide they must tell their mum. And she tells them the greatest lesson: if you really love something, you have to let it go. - - #daysoutworthtalkingabout #holtisland #stivescambs #heritage #summerfestival
