ABOUT THE BOOKA collection of poems about childhood — reflecting simple and intense moments of joy, and some familiar troubles and worries as well.
- This book of poetry is lovely to hold and flip through — it’s a compact size and the pages are filled with colourful illustrations to go with the poems.
- This is no highbrow poetry — the poems are simple and lucid, and should be easy reading for a reader who enjoys chapter books. Spanning themes from brushing teeth, overcoming fears and sibling rivalry, every young reader ought to find at least a verse or two that resonates with them.
- Though most of the poems are delightful, there is the odd stanza or two in many poems that feels clunky and one needs to re-read the poems to get a sense of the rhyme.
