As Good As Gold

A volume of poetry celebrating the simple things in life

... as seen through the eyes of our favourite furry friends. It includes 35 poems and haiku.

My Thoughts

This is a charming collection of 'doggy' verse with an extensive range of other animals and nature included, as well as some delightful haiku at the end.

Young children usually adore books with rhythm and rhyme. Add some cute dog pictures (my favourite is the one in Why Rain?) and you've almost certainly got a winner!  

Kids of all ages will love As Good As Gold. It is wonderful to read out loud, for them to read to you or, with so much potential for joining in and taking turns, it would be a perfect book to pass around a classroom.  

I read an ebook version, so can't vouch for the quality of the production which is something I do like to do, (the 'feel' of a book is ridiculously important to me, which is why I am not a big Kindle fan") but the content is excellent and Patricia Furstenberg has put together a clever collection.

Our Castle By The Sea

Growing up in a lighthouse, 11-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels, and stories about sea monsters.  


Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
