Book Sharing Monday: Out and About

We found this book a few weeks ago at a charity shop and we love it.
It is a collection of poems which follow the lives of a small girl and her baby brother, as they play through the seasons and  have various experiences.
The poems are lovely, the pictures are gorgeous.
From the book:

I like sand
The run-between-your-fingers kind,
The build-it-into-castles kind.
Mountains of sand meeting the sky,
Flat sand, going on for ever.
I do like sand.

  1. I've never heard of this one, but I love Shirley Hughes. I'll have to keep a lookout. x

  2. Actually this is an old book, hence the cover photo, probably not published any more. But you can check your library.


Thank you so much for taking your time and leaving a comment!
