Here’s a brand new book of poetry for the littlest tweedledees.

Full of tiny poems about noses and toesies, sneezes and stroller walks and Dad’s beard.

Most are a bit longer than that, but not all. And the longest ones are still quite short, full of words that dance and tickle.

In case you want to give it as a gift, they’ve designed the book cover to fold around itself and become its own wrapping paper! Clever them.

Hope your week-end is grand. Come back Monday when I’ve got a whole batch of enticing easy readers and fabulous first chapter books.
