There’s a fabulous review of A Pocketful of Rhymes on the excellent Kids Book Review site.
Here’s an extract:
I’m thrilled to see this book. As a poetry lover, I long for children to have access to poems that are so imaginative and clever being brought back to life. They are designed to inform, educate and entertain, bringing smiles and laughs to the reader in the process.
The poems vary in length. Some are short and sweet 4 lines. The 3 – 4 word sentences are as brilliant as the lengthy poems.
The illustrations complement the poems beautifully. Kathy Creamer’s translation of the poems is to be complimented. Overall, this is a welcome publication that should be in all schools and libraries in general.
