  • Christine Joyce

    A delightful book of short poems that will capture any young child’s imagination.
    The poems introduce insects and animals in a humorous way which helps children to see the world differently and break down phobias and misgivings.
    Actions can be introduced to some poems and there’s plenty of scope for discussion of habitats and for language development.
    Altogether an enjoyable book for young children!

  • Bridget Marriott

    Delilah the Duck and Friends is an engaging book for young children. This bright and colorful book is a great introduction to children’s poetry. The poems could be used for discussion points to initiate conversations and further learning on themes including friendship, sharing, emotions, and nature. The colorful illustrations will appeal to children and encourage them to read it themselves.
