Book Review, Poetry

Daydreams and Jellybeans by Alex Wharton & illustrated by Katy Riddell

Daydreams and Jellybeans is a collection of wonderful poems from Alex Wharton that are full of life and fun. These engaging observations of everyday life are bursting with rich imagery. With both playful and  meaningful topics, children will thoroughly enjoy exploring the language as they read, listen to and recite these poems.

Poetry is just what children need right now. Short enough to capture struggling attention spans and playfully distracting, this book is perfect.  Young readers will see the important things in their lives described through comforting rhythm and rhyme. Emotions are given freedom as children realise that they aren’t alone.

This book would find a very happy home on a bedroom bookshelf or in a Key Stage Two classroom.
