Format: Audio CD
What a wonderful book to buy or be given as a present. It brought back all those childhood memories of yesterday, last year and many years ago and now aged 54, it does seem many years ago. As the world aroundus changes it is good to get a book like this that reminds us of the those years that are very different to the ways and thoughts of today.
This range includes poets who bring back those carefree days playing in the woods and streets with the sounds and smells of childhood.
Well worth reading to the family of all ages.
