Author Biography

Christine is an ex-secretary, wife, mother, grandmother – and a farmer for more than 40 years, now living on and enjoying this end of her life on a retirement farm in beautiful Australia.

Her book covers say 'Author - Christine Larsen', and it's true… finally. Decades ago her written creations were shelved, in the belief that editors' rejections equalled no talent. Instead she concentrated on raising a family and meeting the various needs of farming, including successfully raising a myriad of animals, nine of which were kangaroos.
Christine has been rescuing something or someone ever since – on Lifeline telephones; adopting three 'special needs' children; in the community as a Careworker; animals from shelters; and from the Charity shops – abandoned small knitted folk.
Throughout these years she remained an avid reader and wannabe author, constantly 'moodling' about this – until, like a volcano, Christine's creative writing skills had no choice but to erupt, and here she is - working her fingers to the bone on her computer and having the time of her life.
Welcome to her world!

Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

Small Folk Rhymes - Part 2 - Fun + Activities (Small Folk Tales) by Christine Larsen is a delightful and cheerful book for our small friends. It focuses more on activities that are stimulating for children and challenges them to be more creative and aware of the world we live in. The book is also educational and introduces new concepts to children.

Children's books are incomplete without illustrations. This book has some cute and colorful drawings. Children are introduced to new things in an interesting way by arousing their curiosity. This book is a nice way to introduce children to reading. Parents can use it for bed time reading and also during interactive sessions with kids. Animals, colors, vegetables etc. are all discussed. The activities can also be done with many children together, making it an interesting session for kids. The use of colors in the writing makes it colorful and it gives children new ideas too. Rhyming words are introduced in such a subtle manner that the message is very clear to any child.

Children's books fascinate me because there is always something very endearing about them. The colors, the drawings, the ideas; all of it is educational for any child. After Book 1, this is more educational and draws young readers in with its activities and fun questions. Children are shown how to be creative and thoughtful in this book in numerous ways, stimulating their minds and brains.
