Football, cows, bikes and geese; hillsides and long grass, books and the history of Bendigo; the classroom, the laundry and even the freeway; the poems in this book visit all of these with infectious joy. If I ever use the phrase ”downhill all the way” again, it will inevitably have a new, exuberant meaning. Jonathan Shaw Editor ‘School Magazine’, NSW.
Suitable for primary aged readers.
My second collection of children’s poems. A lot of these poems were first published individually in School Magazine, New South Wales. They are a wonderful collection of city, farm, animal and gold poems.
“From the everyday routine of milking the cows and the excitement of children learning the rules of rodeo riding; to the tragedy of drought and the terror of the Black Saturday bushfires- snapshots of rural Australia are brought to life in this new collection by award-wining poet, Lorraine Marwood.”
