With a series of evocative poems depicting plant life, the animal kingdom and human nature, primary school age children are drawn to engage sensitively with their growing general knowledge and observations of the world around them. Children will sense their imagination kindled by lions, tigers, polar bears, apple trees, flowers and pearls and other natural phenomena as well as being challenged on the nature of gambling. Daksha Patel reinforces her collection of stirring haikus and nature poems with testing comprehension tasks that allow the reader space for reflection and personal response. The gentle emphasis on alliteration, personification, broadening children's lexical range and grasp of syntax will enable young readers to develop strong verbal skills as well as broadening their horizons of the natural environment.
