About the author
What child doesn’t dream of having the freedom to explore… the thrill of an adventure… or the excitement of saving the day? With their daily lives full of restrictions and cautions, children will enjoy the original content and adventurous freedom found in the book, Slow Down, Sarah! Sarah’s speedy antics on her little motorbike bring havoc and chaos everywhere that she goes, resulting in the resounding cry of ‘Slow down, Sarah!’ But one day, her Dad is in trouble, and guess who saves the day?
Spinning wheels, clouds of dust, scattered beasts and a particularly cranky cow… Slow Down, Sarah! takes young readers on an adventurous and inspirational ride! Marked by humorous repetition, rhyme, and a refrain that will quickly engage children, the story will appeal to primary school aged children – and parents! As Emma Mactaggart (founder of Child Writes) says of this book, “I dare you not to ‘take off’ yourself as you delve into this delightful story.”
