Synopsis

I'm Proud to be Me! Poems for Children and Their Parents by Gabriel Fitzmaurice

The poems in this volume cover everything from poo to religion, bullying to friendships, birth to death, and are ideal for reading alone or with mum and dad: Though you live in a house With a proper address And wear proper clothes Not my hand-me-down dress Though you think that you're better Than I'll ever be And look down on our equals I'm proud to be me.
