Starlight Sailor by James Mayhew

Award-winning artist Jackie Morris's dream-like illustrations provide an enchanting interpretation of James Mayhew's lyrical poem. Includes instructions on how to make your own paper boat. Rhyming text will appeal to the very young who are not yet reading and older children who can read for themselves. Suitable for the National Curriculum Predictable Structure & Patterned Language criterion for KS1. An ideal bedtime read, it encourages children to dream and imagine, with beautiful illustrations and high Fin production values. AR Level: 2.8 Jackie Morris runs art workshops for primary schools which involve slide shows, painting demos and creating murals and has recently run a workshop at the Edinburgh International Festival.
