wonderful illustrations that bring a favourite poem alive
on 5 January 2001
Ian Beck manages to breathe fresh life into this favourite poem with his illustrations. As a primary teacher I have discovered it fires the imagination of young children, we have made passports, suitcases, honey sandwiches, pea green boats. We've written letters for bottles, postcards and wobbly poems that look like waves. I could go on and on! Needless to say each time it is read it is thoroughly enjoyed and something new discovered.Now just what is a bong tree...........
