"Sometimes A Friend" is on Facebook

We've been overwhelmed with the response by singers and performers who have recorded "Sometimes A Friend", 

A little while ago, after the world began to realise that "staying at home" was the best thing to do while the Covid-19 virus was having such a big effect, Stephen and I thought it would be a nice gesture to have our friends and colleagues record their own version of our award-winning song, and upload it to the Busy Izzy and Friends Facebook page.

It's our way of sharing the message that friends are so important, especially in this difficult time.

Our first singer to upload a video was Zara, followed by Skye Clementine, who sang on the original recording.

Since then, we've had so many beautiful versions that we feel quite humble to think that so many people would take the time and trouble to video themselves singing it and then uploading to the Facebook page. 

If you're on Facebook you can see all the uploaded videos, as well as heaps more stuff here: https://www.facebook.com/BusyIzzyandFriends/

We hope you enjoy all the different vocal and instrumental versions, and you're welcome to add your own version to the collection by simply posting your video to the "Posts" section of the page.

Busy Izzy and Friends on YouTube:

Do you eat your veggies? Busy Izzy and her friends do, they love to eat healthy fruits and vegetables because they know it keeps them strong and healthy too.

Busy Izzy's veggie garden is at the back of Nix & Nax. There is a compost bin full of scraps from when Izzy makes and bakes healthy snacks. The compost bin has a little red wiggler worm called 'Wormee', a compost-vermi, and his friends who turn the scraps into vermi-compost. Just a taste of rotting waste, they all move in. They're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin.

Izzy has a beehive with honey bees. These hard working littlies pollinate the fruits and vegetables. Pollination occurs when insects such as bees visit flowers, collecting nectar and pollen. Pollen is rubbed onto the insect and is then rubbed off onto the next flower the insect visits.

Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.
Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.

We are thrilled to hear from parents and teachers of little ones about how much they love Busy Izzy and the Busy Izzy and Friends, children's picture books .  We love seeing the kids dressed as their favourite character.  

Here is 4 year old Zara, dressed as Busy Izzy, whom she loves by the way.  Her mum, said that Zara asks to have the Busy Izzy and Friends books read to her before bedtime. 

In Zara's mum's words,

"I read the books to Zara every night and she just loves them.  I have observed how  Zara appreciates Izzy's qualities and says, "When I grow up I want to be kind, thoughtful, helpful, and a wonderful friend just like Busy Izzy is to all her friends". I had to buy her a little puppet puppy just like Newly Truly, who is Izzy's clever rescue pup.

The Busy Izzy and Friends books are a must for all little ones, I love them as they teach the importance of empathy, kindness and being a great friend."

Thank you Zara's mum.
