I have been reading extracts from "Plum" to my son since before he was 3 years old and the lines remain as hypnotic now as the were then over 18 months ago.
"instructions for growing poetry" still remains the favourite both with Alex and myself.
Every poem grows on the reader and like a good painting there is always something new to discover.
My daughter will soon be old enough to understand the poems and I can genuinely say that I look forward to helping her discover the many joys of "Plum"...
The one book in my son's vast collection that i have never tired of reading to him.
He knows many off by heart and I only have to say... " I dreamed a dream of Elephants...." and he does the rest!
