Review - Grandma’s Poetry Book ~ by Di Castle
Grandma’s Poetry Book charts the nostalgic journey from birth to teens as seen through the eyes of a grandmother. It captures the many facets of those fleeting, easily forgotten moments as the grandchildren grow. Touching and funny in turn, the poems resonate with a grandmother’s love for her grandchildren.
Inspired by A A Milne and the bouncy verse of Pam Ayres, Grandma’s Poetry Book was inspired by the birth of Di Castle’s first grandchild. It has been illustrated by Denise Horn – whose sketches capture the special bond between grandparents and their families.
We think this a lovely collection of poems and illustrations which really do touch the reader, and one you can pick up at any time and it makes you smile. As the book takes us on a journey from tots to teens it would make a lovely gift for a new grandparent but we can imagine the knowing nod of the head from a more seasoned gran!
