Synopsis

Yoko Ono Collector of Skies by Nell Beram, Carolyn Boriss-Krimsky

This biography written for young adults explores the life and art of Yoko Ono, from her childhood haikus to her involvement in Fluxus and experimental music. The focus remains on why Yoko is an important artist, not just the wife of one of the world's most legendary performers. An incredibly inspiring and moving story for young people who are interested in following their dreams to become an artist or who have ever contemplate what is art or what is beauty. An outcast throughout most of her life and misunderstood by every group she was supposed to belong to, Yoko followed her own unique vision to create art and music that was ahead of its time and would later be celebrated. She continues to be an important voice for peace to this day.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

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 love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
