Seaside Poems by Jill Bennett

Let's do the flip-flop frolic and splash into the sea! Playing on the sand, looking at starfish, going to the funfair, imagining mermaids, or listening to the wind and waves-this book is full of poems about what children love to do at the seaside. Illustrated charmingly by Nick Sharratt, the collection includes poems by Judith Nicholls, Margaret Mahy, and Richard Edwards.


Twelve seasonal poems in a themed collection-very useful for this recurring topic in schools, libraries, pre-school groups and nurseries ... The illustrations are delightful, bright and bold. The School Librarian
