Synopsis

The World is Sweet by Valerie Bloom

Time's a bird, which leaves its footprints At the corners of your eyes, Time's a jockey, racing horses, The sun and moon across the skies. Time's a thief, stealing your beauty, Leaving you with tears and sighs, But you waste time trying to catch him, Time's a bird and Time just flies. A stunning first ever collection of new poems from the renowned performance poet Valerie Bloom. Her poetry is beautifully crafted yet full of energy - her subjects range from the philosophical, to taking sandwiches to school and being afraid of ghosts. Her mixed use of standard English and dialect is a delight to read and hear. Children love reading and listening to her work!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
