Playful poems

In Singily Skipping Along, Sheree Fitch's inventive language poem, she coins new words filled with rhythm and bounce. Her creative verses encourage children aged two to five to move like trees, ducks, whales, and songs.

Deanne Fitzpatrick's hooked rug illustrations bring Fitch's words to colourful, three-dimensional life. You can practically feel their nubbly texture.

A smilingly happy read.
