The new website looks great and I’m very excited to launch it. I hope you’ll check it out from time to time as I’ll be adding new books, news and blog posts often.
Now, what better way to kick off than with a revelation?
KIDS LOVE POETRY!
‘Who likes poetry?’ I asked in schools during Book Week. Battalions of hands shot up every time.
Poetry GIVES so much.
It involves language, senses, emotions, humour, subtlety, twists and playfulness.
Poems are just like stories; some you like better than others. But let’s give kids more poems to enjoy. And how about this new anthology from Wakefield Press; Tadpoles in the Torrens.
It’s full of funny, wry, moving poems. Get yourself a copy and enjoy.
