Book Description

5 Jan 2012
Where do we find the words to greet a new arrival? In this celebratory book, poet Kate Clanchy has made an inspired choice of poems that speak powerfully of the wonder, joy, bewilderment and mystery that new life brings, from conception through to the first years of parenthood. The Picador Book of Birth Poems is an essential source of inspiration for anyone looking to welcome the new child to the world, and the perfect gift for every new parent – as well as a wonderfully moving literary journey in its own right.

5.0 out of 5 stars We need to be told 8 Mar 2012
Format:Paperback
One suspects this is Picador's 2004 volume All the Poems You Need to Say Hello under a less ambiguous rubric, and nothing wrong with that except that the massive Not For Mothers Only (including the all-important REARING bit as well!) was published since. Perhaps someone - the excellent Picador even? - could clarify in a note to this review
